Dollar Store Scarves



Last fall the dollar store had some soft and tempting eyelash yarn for a dollar a skein. I couldn't resist! Two skeins of black and two of red made two quick-to-knit scarves for the hat, glove, and scarf drive at my workplace. I should have picked up more yarn! Other hat and scarf projects are in the works, yarn picked up at thrift stores and rummage sales. Fun stuff!

  1. Ijust found your blog. Keep it up! It is good to see someone who still makes something out of nothing. Do you have a pattern for these scarves?

  2. It's simple: With size 10 or 11 needles, working in garter stitch, cast on three stitches. Increase in the first stitch of each row until you have 11 or twelve stitches, then work even until you're close to the end of the second skein. Then decrease at the beginning of each row until three stitches remain. Bind off.
