Taffy Scarf–Free Pattern of the Month!
2 Balls Vickie Howell Collection’s VEGAS (67%Wool/29%Soysilk/4%Lurex; 50gr./100m) in color: Ghost Bar #412
Size US 15 (10mm) circular needle (29” or longer)
Vintage brooch (optional)
FINISHED MEASUREMENTS (post felting and scrunching)
Approx. 50” x 4 ¼” (felting varies results)
CO 140 sts.
Row 1: Knit
Row 2: Purl
Repeat rows 1 & 2 until piece measures 10 ½”. BO. Weave in ends.
Using a small amount of mild soap or shampoo, immerse scarf into sink filled with hot-ish water (I recommend wearing dish gloves if your skin tends to be sensitive). Aggressively agitate fabric but rubbing and smooshing it together, until stitch definition is difficult to see (there will be some gauzy, holes remaining). Rinse with cold water, squeeze out excess and lay out on a towel. Using your fingers, pull on edges to create rippled effect. Let dry.
Using a tapestry needle and scraps of yarn, scrunch an area of fabric together (about 3” up from one end) and sew up-and-down through the layers of fabric until secure. Knot and tie-off. Repeat about 4” up from last “scrunch” and twice more on the opposite end of the scarf. Wrap around your beautiful self and finish off with a vintage brooch!

Love the pattern! I purchased our powder puff pillow pattern as well. I’m dying to try the new Vegas yarn but cannot find it anywhere!!!
Very nice! Love the color. I am extremely upset, tho, because stupid HGTV took your show off at 7 am! Who wants to watch scrapbooking? not me! I want Knitting! I don’t get the DIY network! grrrrrrrrrr. Well, at least your blog is fun.
