LION BRAND FUN FUR PATTERN BK4K-0505002 - Skill: Beginner
GAUGE: 10 stitches + 7 rows = 4 inches (10 cm) in Garter Stitch
(knit every row).
NOTE Use #113 red for alternate colorway
Make hatband first; scarf is worked from the balance of the yarn. Scarf is worked is worked holding 1 strand of each color of Fun Fur (or two of the red) together throughout. BE SURE TO CHECK YOUR GAUGE. When you match the gauge in a pattern, your project will be the size specified in the pattern and the materials specified in the pattern will be sufficient. If it takes you less stitches and rows to make a 4 in. [10 cm] square, try using a smaller size hook or needles; if more stitches and rows, try a larger size hook or needles.
With 1 strand of each color held together, make a slip knot. Cast on 3 stitches – a total of 4 stitches.
Work in Garter Stitch on those 4 stitches until the band fits your hat (generally about 21 inches but size will vary by hat)
Bind off all sts. Sew ends together, fluffing fur out of seam.
With 1 strand of each color held together, make a slip knot. Cast on 9 stitches – a total of 10 stitches.
Work in Garter Stitch on those 10 stitches until approximately 1 yard remains.
Bind off loosely. Weave in ends.

4 balls Homespun® Yarn

1 Lion Brand Knitting Needles - Size 10.5 [6.5 mm]
1 Large-Eye Blunt Needles (Set of 6)
• LION BRAND crochet hook, any size D/3 – L/11 [3.25-8 mm], for attaching fringe
Skill Level: Beginner
12 stitches across and 20 rows down should measure 4 in. [10 cm] in garter stitch (knit every stitch on every row. BE SURE TO CHECK YOUR GAUGE. When you match the gauge in a pattern, your project will be the size specified in the pattern and the materials specified in the pattern will be sufficient. If it takes you less stitches and rows to make a 4 in. [10 cm] square, try using a smaller size hook or needles; if more stitches and rows, try a larger size hook or needles.
Cast on 60 stitches. Work in garter stitch (knit every stitch on every row) until the first skein of yarn is almost finished. At the beginning of the next row, attach a new skein of yarn, leaving a tail of both skeins. Continue working in garter stitch, attaching the third and fourth skeins in the same way. Continue until Shawl measures 60 in. [152.5 cm]. Bind off all stitches. Cut yarn, leaving a long tail. Thread the tail into a large-eyed blunt needle, and use the needle to weave the tail through the Shawl. Trim end of tail. In the same way, weave in the tail from the beginning of your work and the tails from where the second, third, and fourth skeins were joined.
FRINGE Cut 248 strands of yarn, each 13 in. [33 cm] long. For each fringe, hold 4 strands of yarn together and fold in half. Use crochet hook to draw fold through edge of piece, forming a loop. Pull ends of fringe through this loop. Pull to tighten. Make 62 fringes along both short sides with 8 strands of yarn in each fringe. Trim fringe evenly.
Our group gives shawls to men, as well as, women. I thought that the fringe was a little too feminine for the guys. I knit a small band (maybe cast on 12 and knit 3, purl 3) until the length of the end of each side, and sew it on. It gives the shawl a finished look, and you don't have all that fringe to tickle you!
