Long ago, I had someone tell me she liked to make cords on the knitting nancy (aka knitting mushroom), but then didn’t have a good project to use them up. If that sounds like you, try making a scarf like mine. Using about half a skein of each of 4 colors of worsted weight yarn, run them through your knitting nancy until you have knitted cords 5 yards long.
Next fold each of the cords in half, and pin the folded ends down so they can’t move. Weave them in a simple over-and-under pattern like this. In the beginning it looks like a heart.
Continue weaving until you get to the bottom. If when you get there, you find a cord is longer than the rest, unravel it and cast off at the right length. Tie off and tuck in ends.
The scarf takes many hours of knitting, but the result feels like a springy cloud in your hands.
Happy Valentine’s Day!
