No Mo BLue Scarf

Firefly Knits No Mo Blues ScarfSometimes people need to feel silly and sometimes you know someone who could use a bit of silly inspiration. I made this scarf for my daughter, just as a silly fun scarf for her to wear whenever she feels blue. It would be hard to feel blue wearing something this red and this skinny and this silly, thus the name.

This is a very quick one-evening project. The needle size can be adjusted down, depending on how tight you want the cork screw effect of the scarf to be: the smaller the needles, the tighter the cork screw. I used Bernat eyelash yarn with size U.S. 13 29″ dpns for this scarf, but I’ve made a similar one in an incredibly soft polymide yarn once before on smaller needles and that one coiled into the most wonderful tight cork screw. The most important thing about the needles you use is that they are long enough to accomodate the last two rows because you end up with 360 stitches by the second to last row.

I hope you make this scarf for someone who needs to feel silly once in a while.

Materials:

  • 1 skein Bernat Eyelash Yarn in Lipstick (approximately 270 yards)
  • 1 pair size U.S. 13 29″ circular needles
  • tapestry needle

Directions:

Cast on 80 stitches.

Row 1: Knit.

Row 2: Knit across, increasing one stitch in every other stitch across. 120 stitches on needles.

Row 3: Knit across, increasing one stitch in every other stitch across. 180 stitches on needles.

Row 4: Knit across, increasing one stitch in each stitch across. 360 stitches on needles.

Row 5: Knit.

Row 6: Bind off loosely. As you bind off the stithces, you will see a twist begin to show up in the scarf. You can tighten the twist by using smaller needles, if you like.

This is a very quick project, easy to complete in one evening.

  1. […] Last thing for today is this silly red scarf I made for my daughter … it is silly on purpose. It requires less than one skien of eyelash yarn, and knits up very quickly. Incredibly soft, it provides just the right amount of humor to warm the spirits … so knit one for someone who could use a bit of cheering up. Knit it for yourself if you are ever prone to feeling the “blues”. Find the pattern here. […]
