I spend, as I am sure you do too, an awful lot of time scrolling through books, magazines and the internet to find the next exciting project to put on my hook. Sometimes, however, an idea can come simply from looking at colours and the yarn itself. I am fortunate, I have a mountain of yarn to play with and I am lucky enough to see the colour combinations that my customers put together. Here are some of my favourites recently...you might see yours in there!
About a week ago, when in truth I should have been completing another project, I had a play with the DROPS Karisma colours that I have in stock. I fell in love with this particular combination...
Wine Red (48)
Dark Mustard (52)
Forest Green (47)
I knew I wanted a scarf that would go round and round and round, so it needed to be a really, really long chain! I added a foundation row of dc stitches to create a simple edge and then it was rows of granny stripes, finished off with another row of dc stitches.
The scarf can be left with or without tassels.
If you choose tassels here's a video of how I made my tassels.....
Here's how I added my tassels...
The result is a very long, very cosy, chunky scarf, which I have since discovered is called a Super Scarf, hence the simple, yet apt, name 'Super Granny Scarf'. Without realising it, I am apparently 'bang on trend' with my super scarf, as outlined by this article I stumbled upon from Yarnspirations, explaining that super scarves were this season's new trend! They also have a great video explaining how to tie such a scarf too. Although I think my scarf is a little smaller than the super scarves in the article, you could easily add more chains and rows to really supersize it up!
Drops Karisma is also available in my shop.
Here are some alternative DROPS Karisma colour combos, that I think would look great for this scarf...you would need 4 x 50g balls of the main colour and 50g each of the four accent colours. I have put the main colour in the centre of the arrangements below.
50g Orange (11)
50g Green (50) (this is more blue than green)
50g Dark mustard (52)
50g Petrol (73)
