Wine Scarves

Standard

I’m still in the beginning knitter camp, despite my two years of practice. But I’ve been venturing out as I try some new stitches and techniques, and I’ve found this quick-ish knitting project producing cute Christmas gifts if paired with bottles on wine. This project has the added benefits of giving me additional knitting practice and helping me use up a skein of holiday-red yarn. I’ve done several with plain garter stitch, adding pom-poms (a new skill) to the ends of one and fringe to another. I did  a scarf with rows of alternating garter stitch and yarn overs, and I’m now working on a scarf made out of seed stitch (another new skill).  I’ll try the chevron seed stitch on my next one.  For the one in the photo above, I cut the tufts off of some bunny yarn and sewed them onto the garter stitch scarf.

Each scarf is about an inch and a half wide and 16 inches long.  It’s a great way to advance my skill level without committing to a big and/or expensive project.  Maybe this is a project that will interest other novice knitters like I am!
