Have a Poppin’ Good Holiday

Monday, November 23rd, 2009

Poppin’ is a yarn that is at its best during the holiday knitting season.  With this yarn you can whip up a fun scarf in an evening.

Use size 7 or 8 needles, cast on 8 – 10 sts using a backweards loop cast on and knit- using 1 flat area for the first and last st of every row, and working 2 sts in each flat area in between.

Cast on an even amount, using the backward loop technique—1 st per straight area between pops.  Knit every row- working  1 st per straight area between pops for the first and last st of every row, and 2 sts per straight area between pops for every stitch inbetween (so work 1-2-2-2-1 for 8 sts, 1-2-2-2-2-1 for 10 sts).  Bind off working 1 st per straight area between pops.
