yarn lover’s wall decor: a tutorial

Okay, I want to learn to knit just so I have a great reason to have this wall art on my wall. I wonder if it would look just as cute with a wooden crochet hook.

mirrormirror's Missoni for ME Scarf

I cast on 600 stitches, and knitted through the back loops at the beginning and end of every row leaving a short length of yarn. I then pulled the yarn tightly to create a self-fringe. I did one row only per colour (which took 6-7 yards of yarn). I ended up doing 82 rows and the scarf is just over 6 inches wide. It grew in blocking and is about 9 ft long, and wraps twice round my neck easily. You could probably go shorter.

Variation of Old Shale stitch. M1 instead of YO makes the pattern more dense and not so lacy, I've discovered.
