Pink Knit Potato Chip Scarf

If you are not a knitter you might wonder why this is called a Potato Chip Scarf? They say that they are very addictive and once you make one of these scarves it's like eating potato chips because you can't stop at making only one. Well I did only make one scarf and don't know if I will make any more or not. It's fun and easy to make, but one is all I want to make for now. There are several free instructions online for making a potato chip scarf and some are a little different than others. I used the Rustic Potato Chip Scarf that is a free pattern on Ravelry.
I knit a Potato Chip Scarf out of the pink variegated yarn I bought a couple of years ago from a fiber artist. It's cotton and I think bamboo(?). It's soft and feels nice. 
As you knit this scarf if makes a ruffle. This is done by knitting short rows. Those of you who knit will understand what short rows are. 

I couldn't resist tossing the scarf on the garden Buddha in the snow!
Had to toss it over the Pagoda too, lol.
Pin It Now!

  1. I don't knit so I won't be making even one of these, but it is really beautiful! Looks good around Buddha's neck. :O)

  4. Pretty scarf and yarn. I haven't tried that pattern yet, maybe... It is just too warm here to wear scarves. I pretty much make socks and send them north.

  8. I really like your scarf and I'm usually not a fan of things made with novelty yarns. It looks soft even in the photo and I like that the yarn looks like its different thicknesses which gives it an interesting dimension as well. as usual, well done

  9. Your pink potato chip scarf is lovely. I crocheted only one and donated it to the Pink Scarf Project. One was enough for me! Too fiddly!! Creative Stitching Bliss Dear...
