First Knitted Scarf

From the time I picked up knitting again in mid-December 2016, I’ve made my first scarf, which was started and finished about three weeks ago. It turned out beautifully! I had initially intended it to be an infinity scarf, but settled on the scarf form (the pattern itself was actually for a cowl). Of course, I could always make another one as an infinity. The length of the scarf isn’t as long as I wanted it, because I ran out of yarn, and I was eager to wear it 🙂 It measures approximately 9.5″ wide by 52″ long.

Before starting this project, I knitted a good amount of dishcloths in an effort to practice knit stitches and purl stitches, as well as getting the dynamics of knitting at a comfortable and efficient level.

Materials and tools: Hobby Lobby’s I Love This Cotton! in Ivory, using U.S. 8 (5 mm) size needles. 

Pattern: Knitted Champagne Cowl by Expression Fiber Arts. The pattern is simple to knit and memorize. I think it’s great for beginners!

This scarf was made by using Caron’s “Lacy Scarf” pattern. I used two full skeins (left with less than seven feet of yarn) Hobby Lobby’s I Love This Cotton! in Rosy, with a size I crochet hook. 

I followed the pattern as written, but did not add the fringes in order to create the infinity scarf. The final piece measures 8″wide and 63″ around.

It turned out so beautifully! And it wears very well. This will be given as a gift to my mother, which I’ve simply wrapped in blue tissue paper 🙂
