My turn for a scarf!

Usually I knit with wool, but since I can’t wear it I’m always looking for different yarns that feel nice but aren’t impossible to knit with. Some of the cottons I’ve used have driven me CRAZY because they tangle so easily and make it really hard to keep consistent tension. My current scarf is worsted weight, 50% super fine nylon 50% super fine acrylic. I don’t usually like to knit much with acrylic but the nylon makes it nice and smooth and the acrylic makes it washable!

CO 18 sts
P all rows

I haven’t decided yet if I’m going to put fringe on the ends.

This is also a nice practice in keeping consistent tension and you can really see if you have a consistent gauge or not.
