Trism by The B-52’s
I am going to The B-52’s concert in October, and if it’s not too hot, I can wear to the concert. Trism is one of my favorite songs.
Dimensions: approximately 74-inch length x 4-inch width
The scarf began from a bag o’ scarps I acquired somewhere. The bag also included black and white, but I did not have any fun fur in that color. Would’ve been nice to begin with one and end with the other. Oh well. The yellow was a final addition, forcing me to search my stash for both acrylic and fun fur in yellow, as well as the green fun fur and additional light light blue acrylic yarn.
Schachenmayr nomotta Brazilia Lungo
Content: 100% Polyester
Lion Brand Wool-Ease
Color: Purple 147
Content: 80% Acrylic, 20% Wool
All other yarns (Pink fur, Pink standard, Light Neon Blue standard, Green standard, Dark Yellow fur, Off-White fur, Yellow fur, Yellow standard,) are unknown, but I presume the standard yarns to be acrylics and the furs to be polyester like the Schachenmayr.
Stairway To Heaven by Led Zeppelin
When I had originally begun this scarf, it was going to be a mish-mosh of yarn scraps, but as time progressed, it decided to make it uniform. The glitter is what led me to thinking about a stairway (chevrons) to heaven.
Dimensions: 43-inch (L) x 4-inch
As you can see from the previous blog posts, this scarf has undergone several changes to make it to completion, and working on US size two needles, I am so happy to finally be done with this scarf.
The original pattern – Keeping Rosita Warm by Nadia Severns – called for stockinette; I changed to garter so my scarf would lay flat. I was please that the stitch pattern converted as well.
Care: Hand wash in cold water with mild liquid soap. Do not rub or twist. Rinse several times in cold clear water. Do not wring. Dry flat away from heat.
Color: 101 (Black+) and 134 (Dark Fairy+)
Content: 40% Metallized Polyester, 60% Cupro Rayon
Weight: 0, Lace
Pretty glitter yarns. The black was a different ply and kept separating easier, which is not good. The dark fairy colorway knit better.

End It On This by No Doubt
The significance of this name is in the fact that it is the end of the yarn remnants from that same raffle basket, gifted to me by Rosa at the 2018 June El Segundo Slipt Stitchers meeting.
End It On This Scarf
Dimensions: 3.5-5-inch x 68-inch (L)
I’ll admit that I am digging these scarves…FAST…EASY…fun matching different yarns.
I have no idea. No testing for natural versus man-made fibers.
All Or Nothing Blues by Dinah Washington
The association should be obvious.
All Or Nothing Blues Scarf
This was an easy one day knit. I cast on nine stitches. The scarf was worked in garter stitch, slipping the first stitch purl-wise and knitting the last stitch through the back loop.
The color change was worked by alternating rows.
Dimensions: 84-inch length x 4-inch width (dark blue end)/3-inch width (light blue end)
Both yarns are unknown and man-made fibers. The dark blue was thicker than the light blue, which is the reason for the differing widths. If I was forced to make an educated guess, I would guess that the dark blue is Lion Brand Homespun, but have no idea about the light blue.
