4” x 62”
1 ball yarn
Knitting needles: 5.5 mm (US 9)
Sewing needle and matching sewing thread
GAUGE: Gauge is not important for this project.
For longer scarf cast on 6 stitches: for shorter scarf cast on 10
Stretch one end of the yarn open for several inches and lay it flat,
placing the edge with the metallic thread along the bottom. Notice that
the yarn is a mesh of holes. You will be working with the top of the mesh
and leaving the metallic edge loose to form the ruffle.
Beginning at the top right edge, insert tip of a knitting needle from back
to front starting 4” from end.
Continue inserting needle 5 (9) more times. You now have 6 (10) cast on
Pick up the needle with the 6 (10) stitches and knit using the top two
threads of the mesh rather than the entire strand.
Continue knitting these 6 (10) stitches on each row, always turning your
work in the same direction at end of rows. Put your work down and open up
the mesh as you go. Stop knitting when you have 1 yard left for binding
Bind off loosely, drawing the end of the yarn through the last bound off
stitch. Trim leaving a 4” end. To finish the ends, fold under the corner
and tack to inside with sewing needle and thread.
