Of all the scarf knitting patterns out there, nothing makes a beautiful and bold fashion statement as this dazzling confetti scarf. The best part of making this project is that it makes use of large needles that make the yarn superbly easy and simple to knit!
1. 160 meters of bulky ribbon yarn 2. Size 15 US needles 3. Stitch markers, crochet hook and tapestry needle
Gauge: The gauge is not critical due to the loose texture of the piece.
Size: The length is approximately 66 inches which includes the fringe; width is approximately 4 inches.
1. Begin by casting on 14 stitches
2. For Row 1: knit
3. For Row 2: purl
4. Switch to garter stitch by knitting every row until the project measures about 50 inches.
5. Purl one row, next, knit the last row.
6. Bind off and don't forget to weave in the loose ends.
How to make the fringe:
I recommend using open stitch markers so that you can properly determine where you want to place the fringe.
1. Cut about 60 strands of yarn (about 18 inches each).
2. Divide the strands of yarn in 12 groups, each one consisting of five fringe strands.
3. Gather a group of 5 fringe strands, starting at one of the short edges.
4. *Put in the crochet hook starting from back to front all the way into the openings just above the second row of the piece's edge.
5. Fold the fringe strands in half and make a loop by holding the cut ends together.
6. Next, put the loop on top of the hook and pull it halfway through the piece.
7. To create a knot, pull the cut ends of the fringe through the loop. Do this with the hook still in place.
8. To tighten, pull the fringe ends.
9. Repeat from step 4 5 times, making sure to allow an even space between fringes along the scarf's edge, creating a total of 6 groups of fringes.
10. Repeat the process at the opposite end of the scarf.
