This one was a special request for a male friend - a non-frilly scarf one could wear out on the town during Melbourne winter. Oh - but it needed a classic tassel fringe...
May I present the Elegant Drinking Scarf...
Yarn: Naturally Me: Merino and Cashmere 8ply
50gram balls (102metres) x 4 (one ball used for tassels)
Needles: one pair 5mm needles.
Gauge: 20 stitches/10 cm (this is worked at a looser than recommended tension to create a looser, cushier fabric)
Directions: Cast on 28 stitches.
knit 4 (purl 4, knit 4) 3 times
Repeat this row until scarf reaches desired length.
Finishing: Weave in all ends. Add a fringe of tassels - a photo tutorial of how to make a tassel fringe is available on my flickr account here
Throw your finished item around your neck, find a pub crawl, and get yourself ever so elegantly wasted...
