Pink Stash Buster Scarf

Pink Stash Buster Scarf

Westport, CT

MATERIALS

US size 15 circular needles (24 inches or longer)
Crochet hook for fringe

Use a variety of pink yarns in various weights, textures and shade of your chosen color. The concept here is to clean up your stash. I'm guilty of going out to purchase new yarn to make these "pseudo-stash buster scarves". In fact I bought the following yarns for these scarves.

YARN A - 1 skein Plymouth Yarn Galway Chunky (100 g) - pink
YARN B - 1 skein of ggh SOFT-KID (25 g) – light pink
YARN C - 1 skein (168 g) of cotton candy “Delight” a unique designer yarn by Debra Ann Miller – PO Box 464 – Westbrook, CT 06498 http://pages.cthome.net/DebbieMillerDesigns/yarnkits.html
YARN D - 1 skein (50 g) Berroco Quest - pink
YARN E - 1 skein of Filatura di Crosa Baby Zarella - pink


DIRECTIONS

This is a free form scarf. Alternate the rows as you see fit. Cut off the ends and leave about 6-8 inches. These will be knotted with the adjacent yarn to form some of the fringe. The above scarves were made as follows with the rows changing according to whim.

• Using the Knitting Cast-On Method, LOOSELY cast on 140 stitches in Yarn A. Knit in garter stitch (knit each row) for 2 rows.
• Switch to Yarn B and knit 2 rows.
• Switch to Yarn C and knit 2 rows.
• Switch to Yarn B and knit 2 rows.
• Switch to Yarn D and knit 2 rows.
• Switch to Yarn B and knit 2 rows.
• Switch to Yarn E and knit 2 rows.
• Switch to Yarn B and knit 2 rows.
• Switch to Yarn C and knit 2 rows.
• Switch to Yarn B and knit 2 rows.
• Switch to Yarn D and knit 2 rows.
• Switch to Yarn B and knit 2 rows.
• Switch to Yarn A and knit 2 rows. LOOSELY bind off. Weave in any loose ends of yarn.

FRINGE
Cut approximately 40 pieces of yarn into 12" strands. Use 1 strand for each knot of fringe. Fold this strand in half. Use a large crochet hook and pull the folded end through the edge of the scarf to be fringed from the right to wrong side. Pull loose ends through folded end. Pull knot up securely. Space the fringe evenly along each end of the scarf. Trim ends neatly.
