LOOM KNIT SCALLOPED SCARF

Earth Toned Scalloped Scarf/Cowl With Metal Buttons...


I was feeling experimental today and decided to try and see if I could knit a deep scalloped edge on a loom scarf.  I'm becoming kind of bored with the straight edge.  To my surprise, I got it on the first try.  Now I had to decide what color I would make it.  I love earth tones so I dug out some fisherman colored yarn I had.  I like the way the cream and brown blend together. Because I changed colors so often, I knew I wasn't going to want to weave all those ends of yarn into my project later so at each color change I hand wove the ends in as I was knitting.  This worked out perfectly...my ends were hidden and I had no extra work to do at the end of the project.  I tried to make the directions as clear as possible and hope that you can follow them.  I did end up with a dropped stitch at each button hole which I hand stitched closed without a problem.  I put a close-up picture of the holes in order for you to see how they turned out.  It took me about 6 hours to do this with the time it took to think out the pattern included.  Good luck with it.  I'm sure it would look great in any combination of colors! #Loomknitpattern
