Well it seems like ages since I last posted. The kids enjoyed their time off and to be honest so did I. It was lovely to just sit and take a breather. I also have to thank the lovely ladies of the Inspiration Cafe who so very kindly sent me the awesome guest posts that kept you guys entertained while I was away. In fact they surprised me with them, you might remember I was going to bombard you with old guest posts and out of date holiday projects.
Anyway happy accidents, I have had plenty of those, namely the majority of my children, but there have been others as well, like this scarf.
You see I was planning on making this gorgeous cowl from Adele over at Mammy Made for a friend and whenever I am knitting something for someone else I like to give it a go for myself, just to make sure I iron out any issues I might come across. This is a simple stocking stitch but it's done with HUGE needles and it has been so many years since I had used needles of that size that I thought a practice run was necessary Thank goodness because it turns out that the ball I bought was way too small.
I couldn't get another ball so I cast off and I shoved it in a bag and lazily threw it in with my jewelry making supplies. Then the second week of my holiday I did a massive clean out of my craft room, don't think I wont be showing that off, and light bulb moment the knitted necklace scarf was born.
Wanna make one???
- 50 gram ball (small ball) of 8 ply wool
- Size 20 needles
- Sewing Needle
- Scarf Bail
- Bead and jewelry findings
How to make a Knitted Necklace Scarf:
- Cast on 20 stitches
- Knit in Stocking Stitch until you have just enough to cast off.
- Cast Off
- Slide the Scarf Bail on
- Sew the two ends together
- Attach a complementary bead
I shifted the scarf bail around so that it covered up the stitched in ends.
