Quick Projects: Scarves

Dolce Vita by SMC Select
Available in a 100 gram (3.5 ounce) ball.
Contains approximately 5.5 metres (6 yards.)

Dolce Vita by SMC is a bulky, loopy yarn, which can be finger knit or crocheted into a 5 foot long (1.5 metres) scarf. The instructions are on the ball band, and it is very easy to do. We made a scarf in 5 minutes! The yarn is 95% wool and 5% polyamide.

Link by Berroco
50% Wool, 50% Acrylic, 32 yds, 50(US) needle

Huge and colorful, Link is full of character. Instantly gratifying when worked on size 35 or 50 needles, this yarn creates eye-catching accessories.

Flamenco by Trendsetter
100% Acrylic, 40 yards, 13(US) needle

A flouncy styled ribbon that when spread open, looks like a fisherman's net, Flamenco is a truly unique yarn. By knitting the top edge, it opens up to about 3 inches and creates beautiful openwork ruffles. A scarf takes about 1 or 2 evenings to make on size US 8, 9 or 10 needles. Stop by the boutique today to pick out your new 'quick knit' project!
