I wanted to try a different take on the traditional scarf (and use up some of my suede scraps at the same time!) so I came up with this idea. I knitted the scarf using worsted weight wool and No. 8 needles.
The pattern is as follows: Cast on 40 stitches. Knit in rib pattern (Knit 2, Purl 2) for the entire scarf. Length is 60 inches.
|[Cut 3 stands of yarn 11 inches long. Fold in half and use a crochet hook to pull through the bottom stitch at the edge]|
|[Takes the ends of the yarn and pull through the loop. Repeat with the rest of the stitches on the bottom]|
|[Loop a piece of suede 8 inches long through the top of the stitch]|
|[Cross the suede pieces over each other in an “X” form]|
|[Tie a double knot at the bottom. Repeat for each knotted fringe]|
