It's that time of year again! Every time the leaves start to fall, I start to yearn for a ball of yarn and a knitting project. I tend to have a case of seasonal knitting syndrome! Does this happen to you, too?
If you are new to knitting or have wanted to learn how, but never tried, this is the perfect project! Even if you are an experienced knitter, this project is quick, easy, and it's always fun to play with something new! Also, my favorite projects are one-skein knitting projects, like this one. I tend to go into yarn shops and can't leave without at least one skein of beautiful yarn! I'm sure I'm not the only one with this problem! ;)
Any type of yarn will work! Currently, my favorite yarn is Berroco Flicker, it comes in beautiful shades and has a trace of metallic flicker in it.
Have you ever used the Clover Wonder Knitter? It's cheaper than a pair of knitting needles and can make many more knitting projects too!
To get started, thread the yarn up the barrel of the wonder knitter. Wrap the yarn clockwise around a spoke, work counter-clockwise until all of the spokes are wrapped. Thread the yarn in the holder and you're set to being knitting!
With the hook, pull yarn (that is attached to the holder) over the first loop of the spoke and release the hook. You've made your first stitch! Turn the yellow wheel to your left and repeat stitch. Keep knitting until your desired length.
I like the knit the whole skein, this always seems to be the perfect length no matter what skein of yarn you use. To end, knot the beginning and the end of the knitted chain together by taking the tail end of each yarn and tying them together. Knot with three overhand knots. This knot can easily hide under the leather cuff or at the back of the neck.
Isn't it easy and oh so pretty?! Now you could stop there, but I love the look of adding this simple leather cuff, it also helps keep the loops secured together.
5" x 1.5" scrap of leather
gold snaps (available at sewing and craft shops)
leather hole punch
Punch a 1/8" hole in the leather. Hammer the punch through the leather to make the hole. Make sure your table is protected by a self-healing mat. There are four parts to a snap (directions are included in the package), but set the leather in-between the male and female snaps, hammer the setter to expand the male snap to secure it. Repeat with the other side. Make sure that both snaps are on the right (top) side of the leather. Wrap around your infinity rope scarf and snap!
