pine tree scarf with no-turn pine cone bobbles
This thick and squishy, extra long scarf with large ‘no turn’ purled bobbles that look like pinecones at the neck/shoulders and eyelet pine trees growing from seed stitch ‘ground’ at the bottoms is a realatively simple and quick project, done on large needles with super bulky yarn. Knit in two identical pieces and joined in the middle using either a 3 needle bind off or kitcheners stitch graft.
An Eyelet pine tree adorns each end of the piece and 28 huge pinecone bobbles gather in two groupings at the back of the neck /shoulders for an elegant statement from the back as well as the front.
knit, purl, K & P2TOG, P1 f/b, SSK, YO, grafting(kitchener st.) or 3 needle bind off
3-4 hanks of Mirasol Ushya (114 yds/105 m. per) or other about 380 yds of other super bulky yarn
I used ALL of three hanks so buy an extra to be safe-- you could also work 2 less seed st rows at center join
sz 17 striaght needles
extra needle if using 3 needle BO
Also fun to do with this is (if you’re young &/or funky)-- use method shown in my Herringbone sundae scarf (free) pattern to wear it as a hood. by either pinning or using my ‘anywhere buttons’ -fold the scarf in half and place the pins or buttons along one edge, far enough down to accomodate head size. With the pine cone bobble placement they will line each side of the head and give a fun funky look to what has become the hood section. I’ll try to get up a photo of this way to wear soon.
