diy chain link scarf

September 28, 2011

This chain link scarf can be created by simply taking knitted rectangles, rolling them up and stitching them together.

  • Size 8 knitting needles
  • Yarn (I used sport weight)
  • Yarn needle

(psst- Not the DIY type? Click here to buy the finished scarf)

      [Use the following pattern to knit the rectangles: Cast on 10 stitches. Work in stockinette stitch for 10 inches. Bind off. Repeat until you have 14 rectangles]
      [Roll the rectangle up]
      [Using the ends of the yarn sew the tube closed]
      [Join the ends together and sew closed]
      [Loop another tube through the ring and sew closed. Repeat with the rest of the tubes]
      [The scarf is designed to slip on over the head. The rings get sewn together in two different places. I made a temporary bow to illustrate where to sew. The final stitches will not be visible. Before sewing try the scarf on and make sure it fits easily over your head]
      [Take the end of the scarf and attach to the loop at the neck. ]
      [All done!]

        I took care to pick up all the 'traditional' skills I could from my mother and grandmother – sewing, baking, canning, gardening (although my pesky black thumb always gets in the way) but knitting is something the right handed ladies of my family never could quite impart on a little leftie me. This knit looks elegant and super modern, and just might be the bite-sized project to make me try again – on my own this time, I think!

        So happy to *meet* your blog!

        Um, can I buy one of these from you? Amazing. Better than the one Tavi wore.

        That is a really cool DIY! Knitting has been very difficult for me and I don't know why. But I usually go for some cool knits in the saba fashion online store.
