Stamen Stitch Tassel Scarf

Stamen Stitch Tassel Scarf

The Stamen Stitch Tassel Scarf was inspired by a few skeins of leftover yarn I had lying around. I saw the colors of these tassels together and really wanted to put them together in a new, fun, and fresh way. So I bought some Lion Brand Scarfie yarn for the actual scarf, and picked out a simple stitch pattern that I could easily memorize and work on during T.V. time.

The Stamen stitch is a really simple pattern which uses knits, purls, and slip stitches. With only a 4 row repeat, I had no problem memorizing this stitch pattern so I never needed to have a row counter, or piece of paper nearby while I was knitting. That gets really helpful when you have a lot of projects going on at once. I always want to have something simple going so that I can turn my brain off while knitting, and this scarf achieved that for me.

Lion Brand Scarfie Yarn x2 Balls

If you prefer a charted version of this stitch pattern, you can find it here: http://www.knittingstitches.org/2017/12/stamen.html

When your scarf reaches the desired length, cut yarn and weave in ends. Make 16 tassels out of yarn of your choice, and attach to the bottom sides of the scarf as pictured. Weave in ends of the tassel strings to WS of scarf.

Not sure how to make a tassel? I found a helpful tutorial on Youtube that will show you how. No need to purchase a tassel maker.
