Day 72 and the Knot

It's really amazing how a basic scarf can be something completely different with the slightest change.

This is a basic garter stitch scarf. What makes it special is a basic overhand knot at each end. Granted, you can only do this with gauzy loose weave scarves or the knot could potentially be a lethal weapon, but when you know it will work, it's magic.

20 stitches on size 35 US needles, 1 and a half balls Classic Elite "Lagrange" and about 7 feet long before knotting. Those knots really do take up a lot of length so make sure to knit about a foot longer than you want the finished scarf to be.


  1. At first it looked like braided hair under a Viking woman hat/wig! Nice.

  2. Haha! That would have been equally cool but for totally different reasons!
