A Novel Idea:

Eyelash yarns aren't as popular as they once were, but there are certainly occasions that merit the use of this frilly, fancy fiber.

This Pink Ribbon Eyelash Scarf is a perfect choice for Race for the Cure or another breast cancer awareness event, or make it in a different color to support the cause of your choice or just to fancy up a gray day.

Materials:

  • about 220 yards each of two different eyelash yarns, one bulky and one fine, or two of any weight, or one eyelash yarn and a medium weight plain wool or acrylic yarn or your choice (I used N.Y. Yarns Spike and Trendsetter Yarns Eyelash)
  • one pair size 10.5 US (6.5 mm) knitting needles
  • scissors and crochet hook

Gauge:

Gauge is not critical and is difficult to measure in novelty yarns, but I got 4 stitches and 8 rows per inch in Garter Stitch.

Size:

Finished project is 5 inches wide and about 72 inches long.

Instructions:

  1. Holding both yarns together, cast on 20 stitches.
  2. Hold both strands together throughout and work in Garter Stitch for about 72 inches or until you're about to run out of yarn.
  3. Bind off, cut yarn and weave in ends.

Pattern Tips:

A crochet hook is much easier to use to weave in the ends of novelty yarn than a yarn needle is.

Want a skinnier scarf? Cast on 10 stitches instead -- you should be able to get a scarf of a nice length with just 150 yards of yarn.
