It was just a tease in the beginning.
…but now The Martin Scarf is within your grasp.
We first featured this pattern as a Knit Cafe pattern of the month. This extra bulky triangular shaped neck warmer with pompom finials is a super-fun and fast knit suitable for beginners. Garter stitch (knitting every row) is employed along with an easy kind of an increase. These along with pom pom or tassel making skills are all the know-how you need to make this guy.
You can find The Martin Scarf for purchase on ravelry. We hope to have a paper pattern in the store soon.
To make this project even more enticing I am pleased to recount that we have a new shipment of the extra bulky yarn that we used for our Martin Scarf project. Look at these gorgeous colours of fat and wormy Burly Spun by Brown Sheep. We have all these hues plus tried and true neutrals: 3 tones of grey, and black, cream and brown.
For a scarf-sublime you may want to substitute one of these yarns to make your project with. On the left- Spud and Chloe Outer, which is a blend of cotton and wool, and on the right Blue Sky Bulky Alpaca Bulky, 50% alpaca, 50% wool. Both are dreamy and soft and will make the scarf quite a decadent thing indeed.
That’s all there is for a Wednesday.

As knitters we know that chunky yarns mean quick knits and sometimes that is just the thing. Perhaps (for example) you need a break from your Beekeeper Quilt and just want to finish something already! and well, well, well, look what comes rolling along . Hello chunky friends, my my what pretty new colours! Knitting up at 2.5 sts and 2-3sts respectively you will be finished with whatever you embark on before you have cause to wear it. Maybe something like this…
