Stashbuster Santa Baby Christmas December 11, 2010

Back in 2002, when the knitting on the internet was ramping up fast and furious, a major office supply company released a wacky commercial showing people wearing their hand-knit Christmas gifts, all knitted in lime green yarn.

The people were accompanied by copy that basically said “handmade sux!” I was so inspired by their incredible audactiy, that I wrote a blog entry which included notes for a nifty keyhole scarf, in but of course, the color they were also mocking, my favorite, lime green…

Someone recently wrote us asking about it, so we thought it’d be fun to clean it up (omg, I wrote that?!) and release it officially as a pattern, giving it a more friendly name (the Chic Keyhole Scarf). This cheerful Scarf is a rather fast knit, at 3.5 sts per inch AND you can use DK weight yarn doubled to get that gauge (or use reg Bulky weight yarn). Can be worn by men (ooh, handsome!) or women (oohlala, gorgeous)!


You can find the official version with our other free patterns, but here’s a picture of the scarf with its incredible original name…

…or, for more polite society, CHIC KEYHOLE SCARF

    I remember making one of these, way back when, with Lion chenille! It may indeed be time for another – Betsy’s teacher needs a gift. Thanks, hon’.

    Hee!! Funny you should mention that, I was cleaning out the “deep” closet and found a skeing of that chenille. In black.
