Next up in our Crafty Corner’s knitting project, we’re sharing with you the We Found Love Scarf pattern from we are knitters.
If you’re new to knitting, this is a great project to get started on as you’ll be working with one stitch for the majority of the project, allowing you to really hone your knitting skills.
If you’re a complete newbie and this seems a little overwhelming, don’t worry, I’ve been there! We’ve done an introductory to knitting piece that’ll help you find your feet.
For this project, you will need:
- 5 skeins of The Wool
- One pair of 15mm/19 US needles
- One sewing needle to finish and connect your pieces
These are the stitches and techniques you’ll need to complete this project:
Cast off stitches
Weave in ends
This project is knit in one-piece widthways.
Take time to save time! Spend 10 minutes making a tension sample. This prevents having to adjust your pattern after you’ve already begun, which can take hours or days to change- especially if you have to start over completely.
The tension sample is the tension recommended for your project. It is very important to make a tension sample in a 10 x 10 (4”x4”) area, where you can count the number of rows and stitches that fit in order to ensure that your tension is correct for the project. With this method, your measurements will correspond with the specifications in the schematic.
If your sample is smaller than recommended, try to kit more loosely. If your sample is larger than recommended, try to knit more tightly.
Ultimately, knitting is an art, not a science and you aren’t a machine; so it’s normal to have a small variation of 1-3cm in the end.
- Cast on 15 stitches onto one of the wooden needles
- Work rows 1 to 414 in garter stitch, which means knit all stitches and all rows
- Cast off all stitches
During this project, you’ll need to introduce a new skein of wool, here’s how you do it:
Join & finish
Once you have finished knitting your scarf it will look like the image in the diagram.
To finish, make a knot and weave in the tail end of yarn about 3 inches. Cut off even with the fabric. Weave in any loose ends in the same way.
This is our last knitting guide, for now. Though be sure to keep your eye out next month for one final and very special partnership with we are knitters.
We hope that you’ve found a passion for knitting and have enjoyed our series. We want to thank we are knitters for working with us and helping us to achieve our knitting goals.
