Spring Work Outerwear
 skinny green scarf

skinny green scarf

That crazy 80 degree week that spring started with threw me off a bit, I forgot that I had planned for this skinny green scarf and back to maroon armies for spring outerwear.

My accessories for this black leather jacket go like this:

  • fall: black pinstriped scarf, maroon armies
  • winter: black pinstriped scarf, red knit hat and gloves
  • spring: skinny green knit scarf, maroon armies
I like how it's mix and match over the seasons. I love my armies.

I made this scarf, I know how to knit but all I knit are scarves. I knit for meditation, all I want to do is get started and keep going without thinking until I'm finished.

Directions for skinny green scarf

one skein Misti Alpaca Chunky or similar yarn
size 13ish needles

Cast on, say, sixteen stitches and knit in a moss stitch:

row 1: k1, p1
row 2: knit the purl stiches and purl the knit stitches

Repeat rows 1 and 2 until you have about a foot or two of yarn left, then cast off stitches. Weave in ends.
