LOOM KNIT: SNOWMAN SCARF

Cheerful Loom Knit Snowman Scarf...

Snowman Hat & Scarf Set, Directions for Hat can be found in earlier post dated 10/30/13

A couple of weeks ago I created a snowman hat pattern for the loom.  Since the hat was meant to be a gift for my nephew at Christmas, I knew I wanted to come up with a pattern for a matching scarf.  The first attempt did not go well at all...I tried making a graduated (step) look to the bottom of the scarf. Needless to say, I didn't like the way it was turning out.  I pulled all the stitches off the loom and started again.  My second attempt did not go well either and again I removed the yarn off the loom.  I was frustrated and decided to put off designing the scarf until I was feeling more patient. Yesterday I decided to tackle this project with a fresh look at what I was trying to achieve.  I knew I wanted it to look similar to the hat with "snowballs" attached.  I found out that sometimes it's best to keep a pattern simple if you want success.  My resulting scarf took about 6 hours of work.  It will probably take less time with the completed pattern.  I can't wait to give the set to my nephew...especially since he asked for a "snowman" hat!
