Step by Step
For this scarf you will need, 2 balls of WATG’s Crazy Sexy Wool, 1 pair of 15mm knitting needles and a sewing needle. Leaving a long length of yarn, then make a slipknot by looping the yarn around your fingers and pulling the yarn through the loop.
Place your slipknot onto the needle then pull gently to tighten it.
Using the long-tail cast on technique, cast on 13 stitches. To see this technique in more detail check out our video here http://www.woolandthegang.com/videos/longtail-cast-on
Hold the needle with the stitches on it in your left hand, and the empty needle in your right hand.
Next, you will be working in garter stitch.Insert the right needle into the first stitch on your left needle from left to right (knit-wise).
Wrap the yarn around the right needle clockwise.
Scoop the needle towards you, under the stitch on your left needle. Ensure that the wrap around your right needle remains on the right needle.
Repeat steps 5 to 7 for each stitch on the row. You have now knitted 1 row!
Keep knitting all the stitches on each row until you have about 1 metre of yarn left. Top tip: When your first ball of yarn runs out, simply tie the beginning of your second ball to the end of your first ball and you are ready to carry on knitting!
Now, you are ready to cast off your scarf! Knit 2 stitches.
Lift the first stitch up and over the second stitch and off the needle.
Knit 1 stitch.
Lift the first stitch up and over the second stitch and off the needle as you did in step 11.
Repeat steps 12 and 13 until you have 1 stitch left on the right needle.
Pull on the yarn until the end pops through.
Congratulations, you have knitted a scarf, there is just one thing left to do! You have to weave in the ends - These will be on either end of your scarf, and also where you joined the 2 balls together. You can check out how to weave in ends HERE.
