Fiery Fall Scarf

As the seasons change, I try to change my yarn colors displayed throughout my house.  During autumn I say good-bye to my aquas and hello to oranges, reds, browns and gray blues.  As part of my seasonal decor there are usually fall colored scarves hanging by my door.   Last week (I'm starting a bit late) I hung up one of the first scarves I ever made 12 plus years ago.  A few minutes later I heard my daughter scream "what is that?!"  Apparently my scarf has a creature like appearance, who knew?

Here is an oldie but goodie, a combination of warmth and vibrant color, all the while being versatile enough to be both dressy and casual.

Fiery Fall Scarf


Size US 9 needles

1 Skein Bernat Soft Boucle yarn color black

2 Skeins Lion Brand Fun Fur color orange

2 Skeins Patons Allure color black

10 stitches x 10 rows = 4 inches

Fiery Fall Scarf:

Holding all three yarns together (one skein Bernat Soft Boulce, one skein Lion Brand Fun Fur, one skein Pattons Allure) cast on 15 stitches

Knit in garter stitch (knit every row) until the scarf measures 85 inches or desired length.

 I have made variations of this scarf using different colors and shawl lengths.


If all else fails you can use it as a knitted wreath!
