DIY EXTREME KNITTING with a DIY for Cheap and Easy Giant Knitting Needles
woolandthegang: Try this free pattern to make the Moby Scarf for a bold winter statement piece - they do say go big or go home. :)
YOU WILL NEED:
3 balls of WATG’s Crazy Sexy Wool
2 poster tubes - 8 cm/3” diameter, 94 cm/37” long (available from stationery shops)
2 empty yarn cones (like the ones WATG’s Jersey Be Good yarn comes on)
1 roll of duct tape
HOW TO MAKE YOUR NEEDLES:
Start by taping an empty yarn cone to each poster tube - this forms the pointy tips of the knitting needles.
To make your needles smooth, and allow the yarn to slide more easily across them, wrap tape around the rest of the poster tube as well.
HOW TO MAKE YOUR MOBY SCARF:
Holding three strands of yarn together, cast on 20 stitches using the cable cast on technique. Follow this video here to watch video.
