Anyone Got A Spare Pencil?

The knitting and stashbusting as been continuing at my house. Straight after I finished the midnight baby blanket I cast on this awesome scarf.

Pencil Scarf

Yarn: Marvel Basics 8ply (yellow), Carnival Soft 8ply (grey), Beige & Black unknown brands 8ply.

Pencil Scarf

I used 2 balls of yellow yarn that were sitting in my stash and a little bit of each of the other colours from my stash too. So I have now used up 6 balls from the stash. I still have a few more projects up my sleeve to get this stash busting happening.

Pencil Scarf

I made a few slight modifications to this pattern. Here is what I did....

CO 2
Inc 1 stitch at the beginning of each row until 7 stitches.
Knit 1 row.

Change to beige
Knit as instructed in pattern. After increasing to 28 stitches knit 1 row before swapping to yellow.

Knit yellow as per pattern

Knit grey as per pattern.

Add 1 extra decrease row into pink before binding off.

Pencil Scarf

I think this scarf would make the perfect gift for a teacher, journalist or writer. It is so cute and quirky. I love it!
