Longways Is The Way To Go!!!!

Many people think that I scarf can only be knitted by casting on 10-20 stitches. However, you can also knit a scarf longways using a circular needle. Natalie had a scarf at the shop where she casted on about 216 stitches. On every row she changed the yarn. Her whole scarf was in garter stitch (knit every row). She also left a 6" inch tail on each row, which made the scarf self fringing.

A customer loved Natalie's scarf so much that she made her own longways scarf. She used yarns that complemented each other and had various textures. Her scarf turned out fabulous!!! This just proves that you can take several yarns and mix them together to make a unique and wonderful creation.
