Large knitting needles produce a loose knit scarf. The larger the needles, the looser the lace-like stitch will be. Use a set of needles as large as or larger than US 15 to achieve the stitch you want. In this project, I have used US 19 knitting needles.
Things You'll Need
- US 19 Knitting needles
Cast 12 stitches onto the knitting neddles. Knit the first few rows.
Pull the stitches gently downward after knitting each row to loosen the yarn and open the stitches.
Continue to knit each row until you have 32 rows. Bind off the last row.
Fringe the scarf by cutting six-inch strands of yarn. Fold 2-3 strands of yarn in half, insert the fold into a bottom stitch and loop it through. Slip the ends through the looped strands and pull the yarn to tighten the fringe. Continue this step all the way across both ends of the scarf.
Lay the scarf out flat and stretch it gently to loosen any stitches that may be tighter than the others.
Tips & Warnings
- Bulky yarns are best for this project, but worsted weight will work well also.
- If using wool or wool blend yarn, wash in cold water and hang or lay flat to dry.
