Let’s knit up our little EARMUFF.
Cast On 6 stitches in Stockinette. Lay anchor yarn of bulky scrap yarn over stitches.
Ear of Muff:
Work 1 row in Stockinette stitch.
*Work 1 increase row.
*Work 1 row in Stockinette stitch.
Repeat these 2 * rows until you have the entire 16 stitches and the tadpole is full. You
are ending with a regular stockinette row.
Start the Decrease section.
# Work 1 decrease row.
# Work 1 row in Stockinette stitch.
Repeat these 2 # rows until you have 6 stitches left on the board and you end with a
regular stockinette row.
Creating the length of band between the ear muffs:
Work the remaining 6 stitches in Rib stitch. The amount of rows depends on how long
you want the total muff to be.
Recommended: sm (22 rows), med (26 rows), large (30 rows).
Creating a Tie for each end of Muff:
Decrease the first 2 stitches on both ends of board by laying the first loop onto the 2nd
needle. Work row.
Repeat this decrease row so that you have only the center 2 loops remaining on both
Work these 2 stitches by weaving in a basic 8 weave. Hook over.
Continue working these 2 stitches until your Tie is as long as you want or aprox 10” long.
Bind off by knitting the 2 together and tying a knot. Cut yarn.
Now, the other Tie at the cast on stitches:
Place the beginning end of knitting back between the boards from the bottom and
replace these 6 stitches back onto the board. You will have 6 loops on each board
directly across from each other. Remove the anchor yarn. Tie on the working yarn at
beginning of row at the yarn tail end.
Repeat the process for ‘Creating a Tie for each end of Muff”. (above)
Your ear muff is complete.
SCARF WITH TIES
Cast on 10 stitches in Stockinette stitch. Lay anchor yarn of bulky scrap yarn.
Work in Rib stitch for 90 rows.
When scarf is as long as desired, you will reduce the 10 stitches to 4.
Place loop 1 onto needle 2. Place loop 3 onto needle 4. Continue across until you have
5 needles covered on each board. Shift the double loops over to close in the empty
needles. Weave in stockinette and hook over.
Place loop 3 onto needle 4. Shift the loops over to eliminate the empty needle.
Weave the 4 stitches in stockinette.
The first 2 loops will be Tie 1 and the second 2 loops will be Tie 2.
Tie on the back end of yarn hank to the 2nd set of loops. (if preferred, slip the 2nd set of
loops onto a holder and work one set at a time)
Work the 2 strings with separate working yarns just as you did for the ear muff.
Once the Ties are approximately 6-8” long, decrease the 2 loops together and knot yarn.
Cut yarn. If desired, you can add some fun beads to the ends before tying the knots.
Otherwise, simply pull the yarn tail into the knitted tie with your crochet hook.
Place cast-on end of scarf with anchor yarn between the boards from the board bottom.
Place the 6 stitches back onto the needles so that there are 6 loops on each board
directly across from the other board.
Tie on the working yarn and complete the 2 ties as you did the first set.
You may add some matching beads to ends of ties, if desired. Otherwise, pull yarn tails
into the strings to complete.
