Today’s featured yarn is Berroco Candy FX, on sale at 40% off. This is a beautiful shimmery yarn with little bobbly bits on a string. It’s best used to glam up a second yarn that has more substance but less glitz.
I knit a scarf combining Candy FX and Rowan Kid Soft:
Max modelled because there were no humans nearby. Here’s a close-up:
The scarf is cozy, lightweight and has a lovely shimmer. The finished size is about 4.5″ wide and 64″ long. Only $15.50 for the yarn and it’s a very quick knit. I used 1 ball of Kid Soft no. 756 and 2 balls of Candy FX no. 8757, with 7mm needles. Here’s the pattern:
Cast on 16 stitches, holding one strand of each yarn together. Repeat the following 4 rows throughout:
Rows 1 & 2: Slip 1st stitch, knit to end.
Row 3: *Knit 1, YO*, to end of row. You’ll have 32 stitches on your needle.
Row 4: Knit to end of row, dropping off all YO’s. You’re back to 16 stitches.
Cast off when the yarn is almost all used up.
Couldn’t be simpler. I think I’ll knit this scarf for last minute Christmas gifts. Only 62 knitting days left….
