Steampunk

This scarf is great for displaying your most textured handspun art yarns. I used commercial yarn to break up the texture. It is knit length-wise.

MATERIALS

  • Size 35 circular needles, 32 inches long (we will be knitting flat)
  • 50 yards of textured handspun art yarn
  • 50 yards of bulky commercial yarn (I used Wool & the Gang 'Crazy Sexy Wool')

For this scarf I knit my "chained" and "laced" handspun techniques from my SINGLE series masterclass. Here is what the yarns looked like before they were knit:

PATTERN

Cast on 60 stitches on the size 35 circular needles with commercial bulky yarn

Knit flat in garter stitch, alternating rows of commercial yarn and handspun art yarn based on what you are working with in your stash. 

Continue knitting until the scarf is 6-8 inches wide

Bind off using a stretchy / loose bind off

Block with Unicorn Fibre Rinse.  Gently pat dry, reshape and dry flat.
