Julie's Creative Lifestyle

Easy Knit Scarf

Thursday, June 9, 2016

Hello everyone.  While some of you are thinking about summer, I love crocheting and knitting all year long.


I recently shared with you my 5 crochet projects HERE, that I made over the winter.  Well, I made so many crocheted projects and I was just got so tired of crocheting, that I decided to knit a scarf.  I made this black scarf with thick yarn and large knitting needles.

I loved using this black yarn because it has mixed into it the colors yellow, blue, green, and purple.  I feel like this will go with any color winter coat.

It was a nice change from crocheting and I enjoyed knitting this simple scarf.

Here is the knitted scarf all finished.  I will be donating this to our annual holiday knit/crochet sale we have every fall at my church.  I now have a large bag filled with crochet and knit items that I made since the beginning of the year.




The yarn is from Lion Brand, Color Waves, soft boucle yarn in the color LAVA #353 Lot # 20594.01.   The yarn is thick and chunky and the knitting needle size is US size 13.  I looked up this yarn online at the Lion Brand website, but I don't think they make this yarn anymore.  This yarn was given to me by my mom a few years ago.  You can always use something similar in thick yarn.

I love using thick yarn and large knitting needles, which made the scarf work up faster.  The stitch I used to make the scarf is the garter stitch.  To see this stitch you can click HERE.

I hope I have inspired you to knit a scarf using thick yarn and large knitting needles.  Are you working on any knit or crochet projects right now?

Thanks everyone and enjoy!

Julie

  14. Hi Julie, Love your pretty knitted scarf and the yarn you used is gorgeous. You sure are one talented crocheter and knitter. I like to work with these big needles too so this is an inspiration to try with some bulking yarn I have like yours. I would love to find your yarn however. Thanks for sharing the tutorial link. Have a nice weekend. xo
