Rockstar Scarf
by Jillian Moreno,
Acme Knitting Company

Take two parts lucious colored Koigu. One part silky fur Apart. Combine, shake with a little garter stitch and a couple of episodes of Six Feet Under and you've got a slinky scarf.

Warning (or not): strangers will pet you when you wear this scarf, but f**k 'em; you're a rock star.

[MC] 2 Skeins Koigu [176 yds per skein]
[CC] 1 Skein GGH Apart [120 yds per skein]
US#3/3.25mm straight needles

Editor's note: Jillian says you can substitute Berocco Zap (3 skeins) for the Apart, but it's not as slinky and sexy.

Finished Size: 6" x 66"
24 stitches = 4" in garter stitch

Using CC, co 35 sts.
K in garter st for 6 rows [3 ridges].
Switch to MC and k in garter st for 18 rows [9 ridges].
Continue knitting, following pattern as established until 1 yd of CC remains.
Cast off loosely.
Weave in ends.

Tip: If you drop a stitch while knitting with Apart, it's easier to rip back and start that section of yarn again than to try to find the dropped stitch!
