What was your inspiration?
I was just playing around with different ways I might come up with making a 'keyhole' scarf. For this Loop-D-Loop design, you knit an easy 5-row pattern of alternating stockinette and reverse stockinette stitch welts. The scarf begins at both outer edges and is joined in the middle with 3-needle bind-off so a loop remains at one end (i.e. no sewing). Neat trick! Finish with an optional looped bead fringe at the pointed end.
What are you most proud of?
Loop-D-Loop Scarf is fun to arrange in various ways. For example:
Simply pull pointed end through looped end can be used with either the muffler or tippet style.
Form another loop at the looped end by pulling part of scarf backwards through the looped end. Feed pointed end through new loop just made. Use with the longer, narrower tippet style.
What advice would you give someone starting this project?
Choose any combination of 2 or 3 strands of yarns that together will knit to a super-bulky gauge.
