I have made this scarf for my 20 year old son. To make this I casted on 40 stitches and knitted in garter stitch (every row is knit) to give a thicker feel to the scarf. The key to having straight edges is to slip the first stitch and knit into the back of the last stitch in every row.
For the length of this scarf I knitted up 5 x 50gm balls of wool and used 1/2 of the 6th ball to make the tassels.
|To make the tassels, wind your wool around a piece of |
cardboard 4" wide (I didn't have access to
cardboard at the time so I used an
advertising flyer - cardboard is best as it doesn't bend).
