I made this with Michael's Zoomba. I shopped around to find the best deal on the best bulky yarn (since I've never purchased it before) and though Michael's wasn't the cheapest (Jo-Ann's was, actually), I really liked the quality of this yarn. It's really soft and I loved the color. I know I picked pretty much the same color as the original, but I really liked it! This color is called Sprite. I purchased two skeins. (Note: I normally purchase worsted weight and cotton yarn at Hobby Lobby. Their I Love This Yarn! and I Love This Cotton! are the best quality I've found for the cheapest price.)
I borrowed these size 35 (19mm) needles from a friend. There was definitely a learning curve in using these, but with only 7 stitches a row, it wasn't so bad! And while I don't think I could make it in an hour, it only took me an afternoon. Most knit scarves take me months!
Here I am modeling it, wearing a rainbow hat, because ... well... why not?
This is the way they tied it in the picture:
I even had some yarn leftover! I paid about $8 total for the yarn (including a coupon, of course), but I had some leftover, so however you want to factor that into the cost. :)
I had two balls of yarn leftover this size:
Love and Grasshoppers,
P.S. Like my "back-drop"? I read somewhere to use a white pillowcase as a back-drop, because everyone has a white pillowcase. Not me! I've tie-dyed them all!
P.P.S. I apologize for any weird formatting in this post. Blogger gave me the hardest time with these pictures!
