Santa Scarf!

Stumbling across this: How to make a fleece Santa Scarf, I thought I had the original idea to translate this idea into yarn. After I went to the trouble to create a prototype on my Addi Express Professional knitting machine, I later learned that many yarn lovers have had similar ideas! (So much for my brilliant creativity!)

Anyway, here’s the recipe and a video of how to create this scarf on your crank knitter:

Hat: 240 rows (I used Vanna’s Choice “Scarlet”)
Brim: 6 rows (Lion Brand Jiffy “White”)
Face: 12-13 rows (Vanna’s Choice “Pink”)
Beard: 14 rows White
Moustache: 5 – 3″ strips of white
Pom Pom: White (I used the green Clover pom maker which is about 2 1/4″ in diameter)

Here’s the video tutorial:

And here are the measurements of my particular scarf if you’d like to adapt it to crochet, hand knitting or loom knitting.

Red: 51.5″
Brim: 1 3/8″
Face: 2 6/8″
Beard: 2 7/8″
Moustache: 5 strips @ 3″
