A few years back I got hooked on a pattern from Pickles.no called the Simple Luxury Scarf. It was indeed simple and I must have made five or six of them.
The pattern calls for two different high-quality yarns to be knitted at once. Each scarf was setting me back about $28.
Now that I’m not able to splurge on every yarn desire I decided to try the pattern with an inexpensive yarn. It turned out great and totally gift worthy. Patons Divine Yarn contains a little wool and mohair so you still achieve the fluffy, luxurious look and feel. I call it scrumptious. And at $4 after a JoAnn’s coupon, I call it a great deal.
I didn’t refer to Pickles’ pattern this time around and it turns out I made it slightly differently, which is why I’m providing my pattern below; but I want to be clear that it originated from Pickles’ pattern.
This pattern is for any level of knitter. It’s a great way to pass winter weekend where it’s -3 degrees outside.
1, 100-gram ball of Patons Divine Yarn (I used the Chantilly Rose color)
a long size 15 circular needle
M1FB = Make 1 stitch in the front and 1 in the back of the same stitch, thus increasing your work by one stitch.
M1 = make 1 stitch
Special note: You’ll be using a circular needle only to easily hold a large number of stitches required for this scarf. You will not be joining the work in the round.
Cast on 4 stitches.
M1FB into the first stitch. Knit to end of row.
Repeat previous row until you have used most of the yarn.
Final row: M1FB, K1, M1 *K3, M1. Repeat * to end of row. It’s ok if you have a few extra stitches at the end. Just knit those. Cast off final row. Using darning needle, weave in ends.

I was so glad I bump into your site. Keep up the great work you do. I have lived in Alaska for 37 years but Fairbanks has been home for 31 of those year. I love to see young mom’s who are crafty, thrifty and family minded. Just wanted to say keep up the good work. I look forward to stopping by your blog and seeing what you have created.
Thanks for your kind words, Karen!
What technique do you use for the M1’s? Pick up the bar in between? Yarn over?
