We’re in for a cold spell — highs of -21C (-6F) for the next few days — and I needed something warm around my neck for a favourite coat. I decided to tackle the Loopy Scarf pattern (free) with a couple of 80g balls of Patons Bohemian that I located in the acrylic yarn I had recently set aside. Bohemian is a super bulky, super soft chenille-like yarn. Three hours later it’s done and this is what I have:
Changes I made to the pattern: cast on 22 stitches rather than 18 as I wanted a wider and shorter scarf. Seamed ends together to form a moebius strip so it would lay flatter at the front. The pattern uses all of two skeins knit on 6mm (US 10) needles. The final dimensions are 15cm (6″) wide excluding the loops and 105cm (42″) in circumference.
Believe it or not, it’s all garter stitch and the loops are made by unravelling when knitting is done. Great idea and I love the result! I can see from other projects on Ravelry that any super-bulky yarn would work well with this pattern.
