Here’s an easy-peasy project that I knitted while watching the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade. If you’re a fast knitter, you could pull it off in 1.5 or 2 hours.
– 2 Skeins Super Bulky Cozy Wool by Loops & Threads, 90yrd (Michaels Craft Store)
– Sz. 17 Circular Needle in 19 inch length
Cast on 50 stitches and knit in the round until scarf measures 12 inches or desirable length, then bind off.
NOTES: My cast on stiches are slightly tighter than the rest, so I wear that side at the top because it is slightly smaller in circumference and lays nicely. If you’re good with decreasing stitches, you could taper off at the top by 10 stitches or so. Also, I found that the 19 inch circular needle worked OK, but, if you’re only going for 50 stitches in the round, a shorter length would do nicely.
