The Comforting Scarf is a simple, large scarf that is knit “longways,” with the ends being broken off at each edge and knotted to form a fringe.
This scarf is, if my memory is correct, the first thing I ever knit. My father had been diagnosed with cancer and I wanted to knit him an afghan. But events moved too quickly for my plans, and I was left with a partial lap covering. I cast it off and have worn it for years and years!
The original scarf was not knit out of Shetland yarn, but the general approach would be a great way to play with colors—perhaps a good way to use up odds and ends!
