Apple Orchard Scarf, Knit Easy!

Did you happen to read my latest blog post, Happiness is 1969 and a Junky Ol’ Chevy?

Early September in northeast Pennsylvania was cool! The first time I went up there we had to use the heater inside, it was that chilly. And walking after dark, you better have had a sweater.


I saw old Autumn in the misty morn stand shadowless like silence, listening to silence. Thomas Hood

In my latest blog post, it was 1969 and now, .  .  . well, here we go into September 2014, and school, and football, and orange and black decorations, and pumpkins, and sweaters and scarves. Especially scarves! Now’s the time to knit one for yourself or a son or daughter headed out to college.

My Apple Orchard scarf, knit easy, is just that! Easy as apple pie! And don’t we love apple pie!                    Apple Orchard 3

For my Apple Orchard Scarf, Knit Easy, I used Lion Brand Landscapes yarn in Apple Orchard color. One percent acrylic yarn, it’s self-striping design will knit up in luscious hues of apples and autumn!

Size 10 needles and here is the pattern:

Multiple of 2 + 2

I cast on 32 stitches.

Rows 1 – 6:  Knit.

Rows 7 and 9:  K1, *yo, k2tog; rep from * to end, k1.

Rows 8 and 10:  K1, *yo, p2tog; rep from * to end, k1.


Repeat these 10 rows for the pattern. Add fringe or leave it plain. Either way you’re ready for those weekend knitting trips and rides to the apple orchard for late summer fruits and pumpkins. You can knit this up in a matter of days!                                    Apple Orchard scarf

Have fun, and as always, take your knitting to heart!

    Here in Lakeland Fl we still have summer . I was on my crossing guard duty this afternoon when we had a thunderstorm. I got soaked . I am working on some baby socks for my daughter-in-law who is due in March with a little boy. He is going to be my third grandson. We still have another two months of hurricane season to get through before we can relax for the winter.. . I bought some flannel earlier this evening to make some receiving blankets and yarn for a sweater for the new baby . I just wish my mother had lived long enough to see these two grandsons.Of all of her grandchildren , she only had two granddaughters. One was my sister’s daughter and the other one is my daughter. Now it looks like all the grandchildren I have will be boys.

    • Hi Julia, I love knitting for my 2 grand daughters. My mother unfortunately didn’t live long enough to see her great-grandchildren; she would have love then so! Here in NJ it’s suddenly summer! Hot and humid, but by Sunday it should be cooler. Only first here come the thunderstorms. My little terrier Piper is so terrified of them. We also worry about hurricanes now since Sandy hit here at the end of October two years ago. Lots of places on the beaches have yet to be re-built. Happy knitting for your grandsons! There’s nothing better.
