FO! One of the easiest projects I've ever knitted has made my daughter extremely happy - again. I knit my first magic scarf back in Feb and she proudly wore it to school. She got tons of compliments on it, but just like the mean ugly step-sisters of Cinderella, a jealous girl started pulling on it, eventually unravelling it. As she sadly handed the mess back to me, I said, "Don't worry, I'll frog it and make another one," and as I did, I chanted a spell that cursed anybody who tried to destroy this magic again.
This is just a big tube of 2 skeins of Foxy by Red Heart - 50 sts on 9mm needles, garter for 4 rows, stockingnette till 15 yards of yarn left, then 4 rows of garter and BO. Cast on and bind off veeeery loosely, so I did both with 15mm needles. Stretch it lengthwise for a traditional scarf, or stretch it wide for a cowl, or stretch as wide as possible for poncho.
I locked in the woven ends with tiny drops of flexible washable fabric glue. It works great on any yarn. Squirt a tiny blob of glue on paper, and to scoop up the tiniest bit of with a toothpick. Then slip the glue between the end and the last stitch woven into. Let dry according to directions.
While knitting this magic scarf, I dropped a stitch unknowingly for many, many rows. If you've knitted with furry yarns before, you know how frustrating this is to fix. Just before I gave up and frogged, Raven's Light Tracer came to the rescue. I wrapped the furry tube around the light box, and voila! Suddenly every stitch magically appeared before me, and I put that dropped stitch back into its place!
