I knitted this scarf on a bias. It is actually very easy to do and adds interest. It is super easy to make, since I used a garter stitch. What makes the scarf sizzle is the yarn, which is a blend of 31% silk, and 31% merino, and 8% polyester. The yarn comes with clear glass beads, which adds elegance and makes it a perfect candidate to add glam to an evening outing.
It is a light enough yarn, both in color and yarn weight, so it is suitable to wear year-round.
The yarn is Louisa Harding - Grace Band Beaded. The color I used was 015. Each skein has 74 yards.
I used three skeins.
Size 11 knitting needle
I recommend that you place a marker on the edge of right side. It will make it easier to keep track of the row you have to increase or decrease.
Cast on three stitches.
You will be doing increases until you have desired width.
Row 1 - (right side of work) K1, Knit front and back of 2nd stitch. Next to last stitch, knit front and back of the stitch, then K1. This forms a triangle.
Row 2 -Knit all even rows.
Repeat Row 1 and Row 2 until desired width is desired. I had 36 stitches.
Then you need to maintain the same number of stitches.
Row 3 - K1, K2 together from back of the stitch. Knit to the second stitch before the end of row and K front and back of the stitch, K last stitch.
Row 4 - K all even rows.
Repeat Row 3 and Row 4 until desired length. Be sure to leave enough yarn to complete the project, because you will now be doing the same thing you did at the beginning to form a rectangle, otherwise your end would be triangular in shape.
You will be decreasing until you end up with three stitches.
Row 5 - K1, K2 togehter from back of the stitch. Knit to the 3rd stitch from the end, K2 together from back of the stitch, K1
Row 6 - and all even rows K
Repeat these two rows (Row 5 and 6) until you end up with three stitches.
You are done!
Another scarf I knitted on the bias. As you can see, depending on the colors and yarn types used, you can create some stunning effects.
