Fabulous Skinny Scarf (EASY!) - Free USM Pattern

For the Ultimate Sweater Machine® 
Fabulous
Skinny Scarf 
designed by Cari Clement

Level of difficult: Easy
SIZES: One size

FINISHED MEASUREMENTS: Appx 2” x 110” excluding fringe (the scarf is wrapped around your neck a few times, hence the long length)

MATERIALS
Ultimate Sweater Machine®
1 ball Caron International's Fabulous (100% Nylon; 160 yards/146m 1.76 oz. ball): 1 ball #0003 Misty Violet
H crochet hook for attaching fringe

GAUGE
Not important, but use a #2 setting on the Intarsia Keyplate 

SCARF
  1. Using an e-wrap, cast on 21 stitches. 
  2.  Manually knit the first row.  
  3. Using the intarsia technique, knit until RC = 200.  (Tip – as you knit, if any of the stitches do not knit, be sure to fix them before knitting the next row.  This is usually caused by an errant “ladder” catching on the needle, but if you don’t fix it, the needle will not kit more rows.)  
  4. Using the 1-prong tool, move the stitches on the needles into the hooks of the needles (so they don’t drop when you pull down on the knitting). 
  5. Drop every other stitch STARTING AT THE EDGE STITCHES.  (This prevents the edges from being too tight.)  Bind off the stitches on the needles loosely. Continue unraveling the stitches to the hem.  
FINISHING
Wind Fabulous around a 9” wide book or piece of cardboard 36 times.  Cut along one end.  On each end of the scarf, make 3 fringes of 6 strands of yarn.

American Flag Throw - Free USM Pattern

American Flag Throw
Level of Difficulty - intermediate
FINISHED DIMENSIONS
30"x 48"





MATERIALSUltimate Sweater Machine®
Caron International One Pound:
1 skein each red,
white, navy. 

Optional: gold color for
crocheted edge. 

"H" crochet hook,
yarn darner tapestry needle.
NUMBER OF NEEDLES REQUIRED
192

HELPFUL
3-prong transfer tool.


NOTES
We've all searched the stores for American flags but to no avail. But there's plenty of red, white and blue yarn in the stores and you have your Sweater Machine, so knit a flag.

The 13 stripes and blue background for the stars are done in stripes and intarsia respectively. The stars are duplicate-stitched after the flag has been knitted. This pattern includes two options for finishing: a hem (or casing) on both top and bottom (through which you can also insert dowels to hang your flag) with a backwards crochet at the ends. Or you can work a backward crocheted edge around all sides (in either gold or the flag colors).

Note that this pattern requires having two Sweater Machine beds bolted together since you will need 192 needles. Remember that you are knitting mirror image, so the blue background will be on your right as you knit. Start your knitting on the left so the cut ends from the stripes are on the LHS so the yarn ends will be at the left edge rather than abutting the blue section.

Option A gives instructions for the stars in the blue section to be knitted in using the Fair Isle or intarsia technique. (Remember to catch in the long floats between the stars if you are using Fair Isle.) Option B gives instructions for the stars to be duplicate-stitched after the throw has been knitted.
