Young Hearts Scarf <3
And so it's finally done!

Actually I finished the scarf about more than a week ago but I just simply never got to blog about it.

So, this is it. My first official project, my pride and joy, the one that is going to set the standards for future projects!

I added those cute, mini pom-poms at the end of each edge which really increased the attractiveness of the scarf. As the scarf is not exactly very long, only 1 ball of yarn is used to knit the scarf (excluding the pom-poms). So this leaves me with 3 extra balls of yarn (=.=). But luckily, I had plans to make a matching hat.

The scarf wasn't supposed to be this skinny(as can be seen from the first post), but the pattern made the sides fold in such that the scarf became half the breadth but double the original thickness. I'm not sure if I can block the scarf because I used a 100% acrylic yarn. Oh well, but I think that it's a blessing in disguise because this makes the scarf warmer and looks nicer!

So here goes, the pattern for Young Hearts Scarf:

Yarn: Patons Smoothie DK in colour 1025
Needles: 4mm single pointed needles

    Row 2: K3, P15, K3
    Row 1: K3, (P1, KI) 8 times, K2

    *note that it is actually just the reverse of the previous pattern. this is to make sure that your hearts will not be facing upside down when you wind your scarf around your neck

    Notice how the hearts are actually still right-side up even though I folded the scarf?

hullo!

hey pumpernickel babe, i guess you could make the hearts of a different colour, but that'd be intarsia and really tough to make!

hey there Sarah, don't worry about it! i'm a beginner too. Tongue

Oh, I love the hearts pattern! It would be so awesome if you could make the hearts part a different color! Well maybe that's not possible but it would be cute.
