My Nephew's Scarf
Created By: Kathleen Holcombe

I began knitting a scarf from LION BRAND Jiffy Thick & Quick -- Ozarks (color scheme). I chose the red and black variegated yarn for my nephew to go with the race car jacket I made for him last Christmas.

I did not follow a pattern as this was going to be a very quick and easy scarf in garter stitch. I originally used size 13 needles and made it about 25 stitches wide. It turned out TOOOO wide and it was definitely too stiff feeling for my six year old nephew.

So, I took out all my stitches and started over. I decided to use size 17 needles and 15 stitches was plenty wide. This pattern was so incredibly easy that I didn't even have to look at what I was doing. When I did, toward the end of the skein, I noticed the piece was displaying a beautiful and perfect plaid!!! It was unbelievable since I came to doing this completely arbitrarily.

I had one problem, however. I only had one skein and I needed another! Everyone knows how disasterous it is to not have enough yarn for your project. BUT, I had to complete it so I went and got another. I tried to match up the variegation and tie together. Miraculously, once again, the pattern started going again! Just like that! It was magic!

See the picture to see what I mean.
