I love this skinny scarf! I got a lot of compliments at work when I wore it the other day. I knitted this on my spool knitter and it’s about 82 inches long. I was shooting for 100 inches or more but jeepers creepers if I’d have made it any longer I’d have looked ridiculous.
Ah, a new month and new WIPS (works in progress). Here’s an update:
- Also while looking at Etsy I saw a ton of cute, knit shrugs. While looking for a pattern I could only find needle knit patterns which I probably could translate to a loom-knit pattern. It’s basically just knitting a rectangle long enough to go from one arm, across the shoulders, and then down the other arm with seaming edges together to create the arms. Unfortunately for me I don’t needle knit (yet but maybe someday) but I found some guidance at Purling Sprite’s blog that should really help with knitting a shrug on a loom. As I said, this looks simple enough to make. I’m knitting it on the round, yellow Knifty Knitter loom with Lion Brand Wool-Ease Thick N Quick in colorway Taupe with just a simple e-wrap knit stitch.
I started this scarf last Friday and it was a really quick knit. I used the long, purple Knifty Knitter loom following the knitting instructions that came with the loom except that I only wrapped about 1/3 of the pegs to make a skinnier scarf. The yarn is I Love This Yarn from Hobby Lobby in Black which is a very soft acrylic. I’m happy with how this turned out.
