Green Scarf Project

Just a quick project to brighten up the cold winter days.  Easy for a complete beginner, but a quick and colourful snappy result for an experienced knitter too.

Green Garter Stitch Scarf in Tosca by Fleece Artist

Green Garter Stitch Scarf in Tosca by Fleece Artist

Tools:  12 mm needles,  1 skein Fleece Artist  ‘Tosca’, 1 skein Fleece Artist ‘Goldiehair’

(Note:  you can substitute any super bulky yarn (1oo metres) – Malabrigo Rasta or Aquarella would work well –  and choose a matching or co-ordinating mohair (200 metres)  such as Debbie Bliss Angel  ).

Cast on 12 stitches with Tosca (or your bulky yarn choice).  Knit (garter stitch) every row to the end of the skein.

Have fun and make some pom poms from the mohair yarn  and attach them to the ends.  I made mine very dense and let them dangle a little at different lengths for some movement.  I used the Clover Pom Pom Makers – they come in a variety of sizes, from very tiny to jumbo, and the result is always perfection.

    Looks great and I love the color and added pompoms! Hope it keeps you warm now that it’s cold again ❤

  2. Fabulous, I love the colours! The Clover pom-pom makers are a life saver aren’t they?! My son has dyspraxia and can’t yet handle knitting needles but loves to get involved by making up any pom-poms I need 🙂

    • Thank you! I just love those pom pom makers….and they are so fun to use. (Maybe I made the scarf in order to use the pom pom makers??) I get them out when my young nieces are visiting…it gives them a little focus amidst some pretty pink yarn, and they go crazy for the result! I’m glad to hear that you son enjoys making them too.
