Elongated Stitch Scarf --fast!
Here's a simple and fun scarf project. I made up this pattern, based on a scarf I saw in a store.





Materials:
Size 11 needles. Dazzle, or other novelty yarn.

Directions:
Cut off and set aside 14 yards of yarn for fringe. CO 14 stitches. Knit 6 rows. *Work 1 row of elongated stitch. Knit 6 rows. Repeat from * until you've run out of yarn to do another set. Bind off. Cut fringe yarn into 18" pieces, and attach 14 strands (doubled up) to each end of scarf.

Elongated stitch (aka Drop Stitch): insert needle as if to knit. Wrap yarn 4 times around needle. Pull all wraps through stitch. On next round, knit just the front loop, letting wraps fall off of needle.

I have two videos that you can watch, if you want help with making this scarf...
1) A video which shows how to do elongated stitch, how to add fringe, and samples of similar scarves. Click here to watch.
2) A short video on just how to do elongated stitch. Click here to watch.

elongated stitch love
I knitted a scarf for my mother using elongated stitch, and Moonlight Mohair yarn (Lion Brand?). Family, friends and complete strangers have admired it!

Thanks, Amy, for the idea!

Ah ha! I have this beautiful fuzzy mohair/acrylic yarn that I've been wating to use until I figured out what to do with it :)

Elongated Stitch Scarf
[b] Dear Amy: I just joined your group and I'm really amazed! A girl named Denise had told me about it, and I just got it at Knitter's Review. It's a beautiful site! And very informative, and I love the videos! You do a great service to knitters! I've been knitting for years and love learning new stitches. I've been making scarves and only wish I had seen this one sooner. I now will make my next scarf using the elongated stitch! Thanks Amy!

If any of you make the scarf, be sure to post pictures!

I think it would also look good as one of those really narrow scarves, you know, about 8 stitches wide or something.

Welcome Eleanor! Thanks for the nice words!

Amy

Amy, I'm throwing some elongated stitches into a scarf I'm making for my daughter...thanks for the video. And it's reallllly skinny. Barely 3 inches wide! I'll be sure to post a pic when I'm done.

So, I finished the scarf with the fuzzy yarn... Here's a detail shot. A larger shot apears in the Finished Projects thread I started under the General page.

It makes me happy and I wear it around the house even when it's warm, much to the BFs amusement. It's been too rainy to take outside.

I love this scarf. I've just watched the video and it looks so simple (even to a beginner knitter like myself). I fancy making a super skinny scarf in a darkish colour for work wear - or maybe even as a kind of belt. Hmmmmm..... :idea:
