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.

 

Materials:

Lion Brand Scarfie Yarn x2 Balls

Us Size 10 knitting needles

Yarn Needle

Extra Yarn for Tassels

Begin Pattern:

Co 35 sts.

Work in stamen stitch until scarf measures 60″

Stamen Stitch:

Row 1 (RS): Knit.
Row 2 (WS): K1, *SL1 wyib, K1; rep from * to end.
Row 3: Knit.
Row 4: K2, *SL1 wyib, K1; rep from * to last st, K1.
Rep rows 1 – 4.

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.

Serendipity Hood Crochet Pattern

Serendipity Hood Crochet Pattern

Serendipity Hood Crochet Pattern: $5.00


I’ve been on a serious crochet binge lately! I think I just love how fast it is to finish something really impressive. Sometimes you just need those quick projects to keep you going. Although this hooded infinity scarf is huge- I finished it in an evening.

If you haven’t noticed- I’m kind of a big baby when it comes to cold weather. I knit and crochet a lot of things that never get worn. Not because I don’t like them, but because I have a serious aversion to leaving my house when it’s below 40 degrees. And let’s be honest, is there really any real reason to leave your house in the winter? Can’t we as humans develop the technology to hibernate already? You would think.

But if you find yourself needing to brave the sub 40 temperatures this year, I’ve got you covered. Literally! (That’s a scarf pun for you). If you want something that will get you from point A to point B without even noticing a chill, this is your garment!

The Serendipity hood is a blast to make, and a blast to wear. The oversized look adds a bit of drama, and it’s kind of… dare I say…. sexy? Sexy and ninja-esque. And warm. And let’s be honest- warm, sexy, ninja are the only 3 words that matter in fashion this fall!
