The easy and oh so pretty scarf

My girlfriend stopped by a knitting shop the other day and within a few minutes, learned how to knit a gorgeous scarf. I went to visit her and she showed me just how easy it is. I stopped by the store after work tonight to get my own yarn and while watching a couple of episodes of Breaking Bad, I created a beautiful scarf.

Pssst, don’t tell my model (my daughter) that she is in the photo, she didn’t want her photo taken :)

DSC07365 It takes on 6 stitches cast on and away you go. If I can do it, anyone can. I haven’t picked up a pair of knitting needles in over 30 years. And, it only takes on ball  of this special yarn (it’s like ribbon)

I started making another one in black, white and grey. It can also by crocheted together.


The secret to it’s fullness and ruffles is the yarn spreads apart to look like it’s crocheted and you only pick up a stitch every 2nd stitch.

Here is another colour that I will work on this weekend.


The instructions are online too.

Knit with Sashay yarn

Beautiful Junk Saturday #3 is in full swing, so sashay on over and share your thrifty decor and finds.




  1. Gorgeous. I have not knitted in a while, I could crochet in my sleep, however. I like the black/white/gray combo.

    PS Your daughter is adorable and has beautiful hair!

  2. That is so pretty (and so is your model!). I've never knitted but I always wanted to learn!

  3. Absolutely gorgeous...and the model too... let her know this if she found out ..just in case!

  4. Your daughter is beautiful and I love the scarf. I've never picked up a pair of knitting needles in my life. Easy, you say? I'm tempted to learn! I love the pattern!
