Fine Art Scarf

I have finished another crafty to-do!

Whatever else I’m working on-I always like to have at least one project on the go that’s simple and doesn’t require much thought. At the end of a long hard day, the last thing I want is to tackle something complicated. I also do a lot of my knitting in the pub with friends- so it’s important to be able to chat and drink wine at the same time!

My lovely friend Amy regularly inspires me with her knits and she had recently finished an asymmetric scarf using a variegated yarn. I had three ย hanks of the beautiful Rowan Fine Art sock yarn screaming out to be knitted and I decided this would be the perfect simple project for over Christmas.ย I hardly used any of the third hank so you can definitely make a decent length scarf with just two hanks.

I cast on three stitches and increased on each alternative row until I was happy with the width and then started to increase and decrease on each alternative row (as I am with my mood scarf). When it was almost as long as I wanted, I started just decreasing until three stitches. Simple!

What’s next on your crafty to-do list?!
