FO: 1200 Second Scarf

This might possibly be the fastest thing that I had ever knitted. It merely took 1200 seconds to get from this:

Berroco Link

To this:


I saw a sample of this scarf at my LYS and was immediately taken with it. In fact, it took me less than 300 seconds to purchase the yarn and size 35 needles** to make it. The reason that the project goes so fast is that most of the work has already been done for you. The yarn is basically a long tube of stockinette fabric. The scarf pattern is printed on the ball band so there is no need to purchase a pattern. The hardest part of the project was choosing from among the amazing colors. I will have to keep this pattern in mind during the last minute holiday knitting rush.


**size 35 needles + a precocious 6 year old boy with future aspirations of becoming a ninja = not a good situation. Keep those needles under lock and key!

  4. That is fab! I'd love to have a play with those needles. Have you seen the Pinterest projects made with rope/ cut up fabric/ old t-shirts? You could make some fab things with them!

  9. too funny! we were just talking about this scarf in my knitting group on Tuesday. We were thinking you could make your own i-cord tubes out of scrap yarn of all the same weight and do some major stash busting!

  10. 1200 seconds? I hope it's the fastest thing you've ever knitted! Otherwise, we'll have confirmed that you're not human -- but instead some sort of knitting goddess. ;) LOVE the autumn colors!

  13. That? Is awesome. I'm not generally a fan of big chunky yarn, I don't think, but this looks amazing, such a cool combination of colour and texture and perfectly autumnal. :D And I hope your son's ninja-needling doesn't end in tragedy.

  16. I usually don't like these special scarf wool things but this is absolutely beautiful. I googled the yarn but not much chance of getting it here is the UK. Shame, I nearly had a manic buying moment myself!
