Flamboyant scarf

We´re still enjoying the yarn from Spinn-spinn. This cool, bulky yarn is called Teater, and just looks like a super happy yarn. We´ve mixed it up with a multicoloured mohair yarn, and made an airy scarf with pointy ends and and pom-poms. If you want a similar scarf, we recommend that you buy the handspun yarn first, and then take it to your local yarn shop to find a yarn that works with it.

Gauge

4"=10 stitches

What we used
1 ball Teater
1 ball Mohair Lux
Needles US 15

How we did it
Cast on 3 stitches using the Mohair Lux.
Knit stripes using the bulky yarn where you feel like it. You need to consider how much handspun yarn you´ve got compared to the ordinary yarn.
The scarf is made using nothing but knit stitches.
Knit 1 row.
On the next row and on every other row you´ll increase one stitch in the first and the last stitch on the row 14 times in total, making a v-shape.
Knit back and forth untile the scarf is 51".
Cast off one stitch in the beginning and the end of every second row 14 times in total.
Cast off the rest of the stitches loosely.
Make pom-poms by winding yarn around three fingers. Then tie some yarn 0.4" from the top. Cut the other end open. Attach the pom-poms to the pointy ends of the scarf.
