Mossy Scarf

I have been keeping plenty busy since the craft fair, which was mildly successful for me. I certainly did better than I did the last time I participated (by a long shot!), but for the amount of time and effort that I put in preparing for it all, it didn't really balance out.

However, because I posted on Facebook for every hat/cowl/scarf I knitted for the craft fair, I stirred up a lot of interest, starting with my friends, in the selling of what I create. I have been in the process of conferring with the legal office on base to get my etsy shop running while we still live in Germany, but it has been slow moving and frustrating.

In the meantime, though, I have had quite a few people contact me for commissioned projects. One of those commission customers prefers scarves to cowls, and she loved the Mossy Slouch set that I had written up, so I now have a third pattern of the same look to share with you!

Mossy Scarf

Materials Needed:
Size US 15/10mm needles to knit in the round

150 yards of bulky yarn
Tapestry needle to weave in ends
Cast on 15 stitches
Row 1: Sl st purlwise, *k1tbl, p1tbl,* 6 times; k1tbl, k1
Row 2: Sl st purlwise, *p1tbl, k1tbl,* 6 times; p1tbl, k1
Row 3: Sl st purlwise, *k1tbl, p1tbl,* 6 times; k1tbl, k1
Row 4: Sl st purlwise, *p1, k1* across
Repeat Row 4 until 50"/127cm from cast on edge (or until desired length, which will require more yarn)
Repeat Rows 1 and 2, casting off in pattern with Row 3.
Weave in ends and block as desired.  

The selling of projects resulting in use of this pattern is permitted, but please don't sell the pattern itself, and always provide the link/URL to the pattern where you sell it so others can enjoy crafting as well!  

And now there is third piece in the set to match with the Slouchy Moss Hat and Mossy Cowl! :D 

Happy knitting!
