Still making scarves!

I am sick and tired of tucking in ends. One of the byproducts of making a two color scarf is a MILLION ENDS. So I decided to make a scarf with the red and blue yarn at the same time. That way, only 4 ends, or 2 if you tuck in both at once. (I do them separately, because I feel that it looks better, but it really doesn’t matter.) Because I used two yarns, I used a much bigger needle to keep the fabric soft. Here’s the pattern, so that you can make a bunch too!! Oh, and they are really fast to make. Mine only took three hours, and that includes tucking in ends.

Materials-
Worsted yarn in the colors decided on by the Special Olympics scarf people (link: http://www.scarvesforspecialolympics.org/states )
Size 17 needles

Cast on 13 sts
*Knit, purl* repeat across (work in seed stitch)
Repeat until 54-60″ long
Cut yarn, tuck in ends.

See, it’s easy!! Great to make while watching a TV show, because it requires very little cognitive function. ^_^

Special olympic scarves

I started working on a scarf today. I haven’t made one in awhile, because I have WAY too many. But I have a plan for this one, and the many scarves to follow. The special olympics has a program that asks people (like you or me) to make scarves and send them in. Then, all the athletes and people involved get a scarf!! There are more specifics and details on the website: http://www.scarvesforspecialolympics.org
I’m really excited for this!!!
