Quick and Colorful:
This scarf is very quick and easy to knit holding four strands of yarn together and working with giant needles. You can finish a nice long scarf in an evening, and use up a decent amount of yarn in the process.
You can choose to use four strands of the same kind of yarn as I did or pick any four complimentary balls of yarn out of your stash to make this project with. They can either all be the same color or just look nice together, your choice.
- about 125 yards of four different yarns (I used four colors of Valley Yarns Northampton in light green heather, apple green, pine and dark green heather
- one pair Speed Stix, or comparable size 50 US needles
- yarn needle or crochet hook
One and a half stitches and one and a half rows per inch.
Finished size is 7 inches wide and 60 inches long.
- Holding all four strands of yarn together, cast on 10 stitches.
- Knit in garter stitch for 60 inches, or to your desired length.
- Bind off loosely.
- Cut yarn and weave in ends.
Try this pattern with a mix of different colors or textures of yarn for a completely different look that's still quick and easy to knit.
