It was such a joy to knit this garter stitch scarf in two tones of blue and two completely different yarns! I used one thread of bouncy merino and 6 threads of extremely shiny silk!

Pros & Cons of garter stitch scarf.

Let’s jump into PROs:

  • I love the texture
  • I love the combination of two colors knitted together
  • I adore the ease of knitting
  • The shape goes amazingly with all my jackets (and my husband’s jackets too ;)!

CONs:

  • I wish I had knitted more versions of it (so I did!)

Will I knit this garter stitch scarf again?

If we live again in cooler temperature weather, this will be one of my first makes!

Do I recommend it?

Definitely!

In the photos below you can see this garter stitch scarf with different jackets I have sewn (corduroy jacket, animal print jacket, squared jacket, and Chanel fw18′ inspired jacket), as well as with a beanie I have knitted for my hubby and another beanie with beads I have made for myself.

The yarn I used:

  • 100% silk yarn from Colourmart (I bought 6 cones of 2/120NM super cobweb wt silk, 50g cone/3000m, and put 5 threads together to knit the scarf)
  • Drops Baby Merino (100% merino 50g/175m)

 

The initial plan was to knit this scarf using Colormart silk with Drops Baby Merino for my husband, to knit a beanie for my husband just using the Drops Baby Merino, and to knit another beanie using both yarns again for myself. As you probably imagined I ended up using three of them, lol when I could! Well, mainly because the combinations are easy to match with any outfit and the yarns feel amazing to the skin! My hubby also loved this combo a lot, if we ever live again in a place where it gets cold enough to wear a scarf and/or beanies this combo is number one to be repeated!

I also think this garter stitch scarf is an amazing gift for anybody, just find out their favorite color and here you go! 

HOW TO:

1 – I casted on 52 stitches using 1 thread of DROPS and 5 threads of Colourmart silk (I prewaved it together)
2 – Knit in garter stitch as long as you prefer, but 10cm shorter your final length in case if you are using DROPS merino, because it will stretch after washing. I do not like drying everything strictly flat, everything is always hanging a bit, so, yeah, You can also shorten it if it stretches too much in the end))
3 – Cast off
4 – Wash, dry, and steam (skip the last step if you are using synthetic yarn)
5 – Enjoy!
