Knitted scarves

Here are a few of the knitted scarves I've completed recently.
These below are plain old knit...cast on 12 with large needles and
knit until you get the length you want. Mine are 5 feet.

This pattern is called knit 1 below...I love the way it looks.
You can look on Utube for knit 1 below and find out how it's done.
Fun to knit. I used size 15 needles.

These scarves have got to be my favorites. Just your basic knit one purl one.
But with this yarn I love the pattern it makes. Again I used size 15 needles.
Cast on 13 and Always slip the first stitch as to knit. Makes a beautiful edge.

Magic Ball Log cabin blanket

Using a magic ball of yarn and a ball of black yarn held together
I decided to make a log cabin blanket.
I needed a change from all the little squares I've made in the past
Looks sort of funky because of the changes in the yarn but it's
nice and toasty warm.
This one is 5 feet x 5 feet.
I used a regular log cabin square pattern and enlarged it.
Used a size "M" hook
All single crochet
