Make it Monday Dec 3th- Knit a Scarf for your doll for the winter holidays
I wanted to share with you my very simple and easy to knit scarf pattern for dolls. I am a very beginning stage knitter, left handed and I mostly learned from watching Youtube, so if I can do it you can to!
To create a holiday scarf for your dolls this holiday season like mine you will need:
-A pair of size 11 or 8mm knitting needles
-a pair of scissors
-a ball of yarn (I used Pink Ribbon Eye Lash Yarn from Michaels)
Step 1- cast on 8 stitches. Click the youtube link if you do not know how.(http://www.youtube.com/watch?feature=player_detailpage&v=BKwY4zLVrsA )
Step 2-Continue knitting until your scarf measures 16 inches long. You can count rows but I always loose track! 5 rows of knitting are about 2 inches long, about 35 rows. You may want to make your scarf longer.
Step 3- Cast off and your scarf is done. (http://www.youtube.com/watch?feature=player_detailpage&v=3NEFKbY7HpI)
Step 4- Try it on your doll!
I was able to make my scarf in less then 1 hour. I have practiced straight knitting (no fancy patterns) for the last month and I am really happy with how this turned out. The Eyelash Yarn was not as hard to work with as I thought. If you make mistakes you can hardly tell with this yarn which is why I enjoyed working with it.
