My interpretation of Ms. Poppins knit scarf
I have been knitting these little wisps of a scarf now, for at least a month. To date, I’ve made and sold six of them! I’m caught up with orders at the moment, and I thought I’d share some of the details for this airy scarf.
There is no real pattern, but if you’re a knitter…………even a very beginner knitter, this is a piece of cake!
I used a size 13 needle, with some fine, lace weight yarn. Mine were a mixture of one wool, the other a silk/wool blend. My first goal was to get the colors as close as possible to the clients request. With the picture of Ms. Poppins next to the order form for yarn………..I pulled out 4 that were possibles. This ended up being the ‘one’.
Starting with the lighter color, I cast on 19 sts. Knit 20 rows with the Apricot shade, then change colors & knit 13 rows with the darker Brick color. Then, repeat until the scarf is as long as you’d like it to be. Mine ended up being 5 of the darker stripes and 7 of the lighter color.
I added fringe to the ends, as I was aiming to make this as close to the original as possible. After tying all the fringe on, I trimmed it to 4″.
That’s it. Easy as can be. And, pretty too. Because of the large needles and the fine yarn, the best word to describe this piece is Frothy!
Give it a try & let me see some pictures if you do!
