OK - the design here is nothing fancy. I've just tapered the ends. But these three yarns together create such DEPTH of color! GRRRRR!

If anyone has any feedback on this pattern, please post it below!

Skill Level: Very Easy

Size: 4” x 56”

Patons Bohemian, Color “Artistic Taupes”, 1 skein (68 yds)
Lion Brand Fun Fur, Color “Copper”, 1 skein (64 yds)
Bernat Disco, Color “Mr. Brown”, 1 skein (52 yds)
Straight or Circular needles, size 15

7sts = 4”

Abbreviations: kfb = knit into the front & back of the stitch; SSK = slip 2 sts as if to knit, reinsert left needle into the front of those 2 sts & knit them together through the back loop.

Holding all three yarns together as one, cast on one (1) st.
Row 1: knit
Row 2: kfb, k1
Row 3: k3
Row 4: kfb, k3
Row 5: k4
Continue in this manner (kfb in the first st of every other row) until there are 7 sts on the needle (you may make it wider, but it may then require more than 1 skein of each yarn).
Continue in garter st (knit every row) until scarf is 52” long (you may make it longer, but it may then require more than 1 skein of each yarn)
Next row: SSK, k5
Next row: k6
Next row: SSK, k4
Next row: k5
Continue in this manner (SSK the first 2 sts of every other row) until one st remains on needle
Cut yarn, thread through remaining loop, pull tight
Weave in ends

Knifty Tip: Many times, when working with eyelash yarn, the “lashes” get caught in the stitches. When you are done with the piece, use the tip of a needle to lightly brush back & forth over the surfaces of both sides of the scarf, freeing the eyelashes and “poofing up” the look of your piece!
