Kimono Scarf

I showed you a picture yesterday of my latest project.

It's another scarf!  I wanted something small and fun that I could wear as more of an accessory than an actual neck warmer.

I think it turned out pretty well.  I needed a quick project to kind of help me relax.  I've been knitting nothing but presents and using acrylic yarn, I've been dying to get my hands on something a little more fun.  Eric took pity on me and let me get this fun yarn at my local yarn store, The Needlepoint Joint.

It's called Kimono, made by a company named Grignasco.  As far as I can tell it's an Italian company and the Kimono line has been discontinued.  This pattern would work for any fun yarn, but I was able to find some Kimono for sale on Ebay.

Kimono Scarf

1 skein Grignasco Kimono
Size 15 knitting needles


Cast on 14 stitches

Knit in garter stitch 114 rows or until you run out of yarn.  Try to save enough to cast off with!

Weave in the ends and you're done!!

For those interested, I made the brooch from pieces I bought at Findings Victoria on Etsy.  A great shop and very nice to work with.  The first time I got my order it had been chipped in the mail and they sent me a totally new one at absolutely no charge to me.  Plus they let me keep the chipped piece, so I was able to make Elizabeth a matching pin!

Love that! I'm a total fiber and fabric junkie, so I really should learn to knit or crochet or something.
