Even with all of the possible knitting stitches there are to choose from, sometimes simple garter stitch is all I want. I think of it as the “comfort food” of knitting (yes, garter stitch is my mac and cheese!). But when creating my latest garter stitch scarf pattern, I wanted to jazz it up just a little bit (like when you add gouda or gruyere to that mac and cheese!) So I worked an icord edging with it – it creates a beautiful, clean edge and really gives this piece a tailored appearance.
Semi-Charmed Scarf adds just a little bit of charm to this simple accessory (and yes, it’s a little nod to a classic favorite 90’s song if you caught that). It uses 3 skeins of bulky-weight yarn in 3 different colors (although you can use 1, 2 or any amount of colors you like!). I used a beautiful hand-dyed yarn called Titan Bulky from AT Haynes House Yarns in colors Curry Goat, The Good Ice and Gray Not Grey. Pattern includes links to not only a video tutorial to the icord edge but also a photo tutorial of how I weave in ends using the duplicate stitch (my favorite method). Oh, and I’m offering the pattern for FREE! It’s my little December gift to everyone, in hopes that it provides a little relaxing knitting (and an opportunity to learn this technique if you’ve never done it before!).
