Kate's Big Scarf

My daughter Kate usually doesn't like things I knit for her.  She went to fashion school, she's picky.  But she misses an old Marc Jacobs scarf she had in college days that was big bulky and long.  She asked me to try and replicate it in grey and then I remembered my White Buffalo stash.

White Buffalo Unspun is a discontinued yarn that is used to make Cochiwan Sweaters.  When I bought this yarn on ebay I also bought an old pattern book to make the sweater.

I finished the back and there it sits in my Hibernation bin.  So I was excited that I had the yarn needed to re-create Kate's long lost scarf.

Here is the progress.  One skein produced 30 ins of scarf, so I will use 3 skeins to finish to 90 ins.

Very easy big scarf on 15 needles:

Cast on 18 sts

Row 1: purl 1, knit 1, repeat to last two sts, purl 2
Row 2: purl 1, knit 1 in row below, repeat to last two sts, purl 2

Repeat row 2 till you get the length you want.  I'm thinking tassels or fringe!  

Take care, Sue (hopefully soon I'll update you on finished projects!! Oy!)
