Given that it is so cold today and we got six, yes six inches of snow yesterday, I am going to share with you a scarf I had to knit for one of my daughters. I thought Spring had sprung, but Mother Nature thought differently.
The yarn used is Pom-A-Doodle by Red Heart. I got mine at Michael's, but I have seen it at Joann's, AC Moore and Hobby Lobby.
This yarn was fun to work with, but a little tricky too. To start: Using US size 9 knitting needles, cast on 12, and just knit, knit, knit until the scarf is as long as you like. The trick is to knit 3 times in between the pom-poms. If you keep with the pattern above (knit 3), your scarf will lay nicely and you can knit around the pom-poms.
This was a very easy scarf to make and took very little time. The only negative....hand wash only.
Remember, I love comments, so please let me know what you think.
