It's hard to take something called "Pomp-a-Doodle" seriously--but Red Heart's yarn is a great quick-knit yarn.
I've made six of these scarves as gifts; everyone who has received one gets compliments on it. And I've had a number of requests for them.
The Pattern: You'll be knitting 4 yarns together on size 35 needles. Cast on 7 stitches. Knit each row, slipping the first stitch on every row.
Knit until you have about a foot of pomp-a-doodle left. Bind off and weave in ends. That's it. Most scarves take about an hour or two. Length is about 48"
- 1 skein Red Heart Pomp-a-Doodle
- 1 (partial) skein worsted weight wool or acrylic
- 1 (partial) skein of something fluffy (e.g., Patons Allure, Fun Fur or Ice Pom Pom)
- 1 skein of a contrasting color yarn (worsted, bulky, or fingering weight)
The "shoreline" scarf kit is made with Shoreline Pomp-a-Doodle, green worsted weight wool yarn, Turquoise Patons Allure yarn, and a fingering weight cotton yarn.
You can purchase yarn kits at POMP-A-DOODLE Yarn Scarf Kit on ebay.
Great free patterns also can be found on Red Heart's web site at Red Heart Free Patterns.
And if you like knitting squares, "Knit a Square" is a great place to send your blocks--they'll sew them together as blankets for children in Africa. Visit http://www.knit-a-square.com/ for more info.
Happy Knitting, and get some sleep!
