I don’t know what the real name for this kind of scarf is; I call it a magic scarf. I making one, so I making magic. Right? Of course, right!
- Cast on an odd number of stitches (I did 15).
- Knit 6 rows.
- Knit a row where you knit each stitch twice. Now you have 30 stitches.
- Knit until the scarf is 1/2 as long as you want the finished scarf to be.
- Knit a row where you knit a stitch, drop a stitch, knit a stitch, drop a stitch, until you knit the last stitch in the row. Now you have 15 stitches again.
- Knit six rows.
- Cast off.
Now comes the magic. You hold the ends and pull. The idea is that the dropped stitches will run, and you’ll end up with a long, lacy scarf. We shall see. Mom and I can hardly wait to see if it works. 🙂
I’ll let you know!
