Funky Chunky Browns Scarf

I decided to use some left over brown chunky yarn I had left over from another project and I also had two skeins of Wool of the Andes Bulky hand-dyed “field mouse” yarn so I decided to make this HUGE scarf!  I set my knitting board to 1.25 inches and used a simple stockinette stitch.  Here’s the result!

Scarf Project for Me!

I got a wonderful gift recently! My common-law sister-in-law sent me 4 skeins of this beautiful black yarn and told me to make myself something, so I’ve started it! The yarn is wonderful to work with and is making a beautiful scarf. It’s called Mirasol Akapana and it is 65% Baby Llama, 25% Merino Wool, and 10% Donegal. I had to look up donegal and it appears to be a kind of tweed yarn. I also looked up the web site to find out more about the Mirasol project which supports Peruvian schools.

Here is a look at the knitting board I’m using for this scarf:

Here is the scarf at its current stage which is from one skein. I’m using a rib stitch:

Bamboo Scarf

Ok, so i’ve been posting too many round loom projects! Here’s a knitting board one. For this scarf I used two skeins of Hobby Lobby Bamboospun Yarn (148 yards each). Using the knitting board is great because it creates a double sided piece so it looks the same on both sides.  I used the open rib stitch on this scarf.
