How to Knit a Scarf Knitting is a hobby for many people as they do it for fun, taking it wherever they go. It can be really relaxing and also provides persons with something to do when bored. As long as you bring your knitting bag with you, it can be done at any place. There are many things that can be knitted. These range from house accessories to simple pieces of clothing. However, one of the easiest projects to knit is a simple scarf. A scarf is a piece of cloth that is worn to accessorize any outfit or for warmth during winter seasons. The scarf is one of the simplest items of clothing to knit. Here are the instructions to make one on your own. Materials Three balls of bulky yarn (preferably three different colours). Tools A pair of scissors A pair of straight knitting needles specifically size 17.5
Instructions The first thing to do is to cast on. Here’s how: To cast Make a slip knot in order to attach the yarn to the knitting needle. To do this, unwind about 8 inches of yarn from the ball. Hold it in your left hand between the thumb and forefinger. Use you right hand to wrap the ball end of the yarn around the forefinger and middle finger in a clockwise direction. Fingers should be about 1 inch apart. Next, pull a loop of the ball end of the yarn through the loop around your fingers. Drop the yarn off your fingers of your left hand but still hold the loop with your right hand. You are now ready to start knitting. To Knit Wrap the yarn under and then over the right needle. Use your index finger to guide the yarn. Slide the yarn through the stitch on the left needle. Pull that new stitch onto the right needle. Each time you add a new stitch to the right needle, remove the old stitch from the left needle. Repeat the process until all the stitches on the left have been moved to the right. Switch hands to build new rows. Knit 12 rows, and then cut the yarn with the scissors, leaving 6 inches. Add the second yarn. Hold the end of the old yarn plus the new yarn together. Knit five stitches then tie the ends in a small knot. Knit 12 rows with the new yarn. Cut off the old yarn leaving 6 inches. Add the new yarn and repeat the same process you went through when you added the previous yarn. Knit the first 2 stitches to finish off the scarf. Pull the first stitch over the second one and then pull off the needle Knit the next stitch and do the same thing on the left Repeat this process until the edge is securely bound. Your scarf is now ready to wear!
