Right Angle Scarf

Sunday, July 08, 2007
This scarf is a variation on the garter stitch theme - between the bias-knit "arms" and the right-angle bend in the middle, you'll have something to keep one eye on while you watch tv (or ride the bus, or hang out with friends, or hang out at the beach, or...)

Materials:
2 skeins Bernat Frenzy (1.75oz/50g to 60yd) 37% nylon, 30% acrylic, 12% polyester, 10% alpaca, 10% mohair Color: Panic Pink. CYCA Size 5 (Bulky)
US 11 (8mm) needles

Darning needle

Instructions:
Pattern stitch:
Row 1: K1; Inc 1 (K and P in same stitch); K7; K2Tog; K1
Row 2: K12
Cast on 12 stitches.
Work pattern stitch until approx. 1yd/1m remains in 1st skein.
Knit all stitches (work garter stitch) until 1st skein runs out (approx 3 rows).
Attach 2nd skein.
Knit all stitches (work garter stitch) for 3 rows.

Look at scarf. If next row would have been Row 1 of pattern, begin working pattern with Row 2. If next row would have been Row 2 of pattern, begin working pattern with Row 1. This will make the bend in the middle of the scarf.

Work pattern stitch until yarn is nearly gone; Bind off all stitches.
Finished dimensions: Each "arm" is 3in by 30in (7.5cm by 75cm).

Weave in ends.
