Need a scarf for a pre-teen in a hurry? This one knits up very fast.

Cathy Waldie, August, 2004
finished size (62" x 4")
1 Skein of Lion Brand Homespun yarn. (actually about 3/4 ths of a skein)
(US) 11 needles (I like wood or bamboo with this yarn)
Cut and knot the ends of 14" lengths before knitting. Set aside. ~ 24 lengths.
Cast On 12 stitches and knit 222 rows.
Bind off. Attach fringe.
Finished...aren't they cute? ~ 50 yards of leftover wool, is all it took, and they're winging their way to Michigan right now. The pattern is at: http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=194286.10 and the ravelry page on them is here: http://www.ravelry.com/patterns/library/knit-coffee-sleeve . Oh, I do so love me some cables. You can see the 'shhhhhhhhhhhh' project over on my ravelry page, too...But I can't show it until after Christmas. *wink wink* if you know what I mean...
