Day 21 and the Novelty Scarf
You knew it was coming. Eventually every yarnhead gives it a try. If you're a beginning knitter the fuzzy novelty yarns that are available in every craft store can give a very big and very fabulous bang for your stitch. If you're an experienced knitter, you can use this scarf recipe to make a gift in under an hour.
2 balls Lion Brand Fancy Fur
120 yrds worsted weight smooth yarn
Size 19 needles
Tapestry needle or crochet hook for weaving ends
Hold both yarns together throughout.
Cast on 12 stitches.
Knit every row.
I find that adding the worsted weight yarn of a matching color adds a lot of needed body so that this scarf is not only decorative, but also warm. I have never met a giftee who wasn't thrilled with one of these fluffy crazy scarves.
