I would like to have the pattern in crochet. I know when I was at wal-mart they had some of the yarn and inside there was a pattern for a knitted one. I don't knit or I would have got it.

[> Re: Boa Scarf Pattern -- Dodo, 10:40:19 02/17/04 Tue [1]

Here is a site for a crochet boa pattern. You might try this site to see if it's what you want. You can also type in your address sign or in Google a yarn name, such as, red heart etc. and you will find a lot of patterns.

The site for the boa pattern is

Rachel,

I guess my brain is out to lunch. Thanks for reminding me the patterns are usually on the yarn wrapper. I'll have to stop at Wal-mart today and look at the yarn. It's been quite awhile since I knitted, but I really like those scarfs and would like to try one.

Carol Duvall Show : Episode CDS-153 : Tube Knitting

Tube Knitting
Carol demonstrates a knitting method that produces a closed tube which is
perfect for creating toboggan style hats and scarves. This technique is
very similar to the standard knit and purl method.
Begin by casting on an even number of stitches (Carol used a size 10
needle and 40 stitches for her demonstration). Knit the first stitch and
bring the yarn to the front as if to purl but slip the second stitch.
Continue across the row in this manner, ending with a slip stitch. Cast
off in the conventional manner, knitting the knit stitches and purling
(almost) the stitches in between. Be careful when first starting this kind
of knitting because the tendency will be to purl; however, to accomplish
the closed tube, make certain to slip the stitches. Make the tube as long
as you like. Longer tubes can be used as hat/scarf combinations.

I saw a boa pattern the other day. It was made from fleece(I don't know if this is what you call this fabric where you are, it is soft kinda furry stuff).
It was three strips of fleece about 6 inches wide, laid on top of each other, stitched up the middle (the length)and cut each side of the stitching at 3/4 inch intevals.This formed a fringe down the length. Thought this sounded quick an easy. Hope this helps.

[> Re: Boa Scarf Pattern -- jenjoy, 00:55:58 02/18/04 Wed [1]

I made the fleece boa scarf about a month ago and it turned out very cute...and it was quick and easy too! Also, conincidentally, I learned to knit just last night!!!! I went right out this morning and bought some of that fun fur (eyelash yarn) and just now finished a boa scarf for my daughter. I started by casting on 8 stitches to a #13 pair of needles...and ended up with 11 stiches by the time I finished lol!!!! The great thing is that the fun fur is very forgiving and it doesn't the flaws - I was so happy and proud and my daughter says she can't wait to wear it to school tomorrow!!! I've always wanted to learn to knit so this was a HUGE accomplishment for me today! whoooohooooo!!!!

TUBE SCARF PATTERN - MAGIC SCARF

Date Posted: 01:49:19 02/16/04 Mon
Author: nikki
Subject: tube scarf pattern pls?

I've been searching for a pattern for a tube/funnel scarf pattern. It's a scarf that is the standard length for a scarf, and can be warn traditionally, but also has a stitch that allows it to stretch and be warn as a shawl, shirt, neck wrap, and hat. Even some other name suggestions would be helpful!
Thanks much!

Nikki

Niki, That scarf is called " Magic Scarf"
I do not knit with circler needles, but here is what I have done. Carol Duvall did this demo several years ago. I just got some of the FUN FUR yesterday at Michael's ( on sale)
I am gonna try this tube stitch using that FUN FUR.
A lady from church used size 17 needles, for a plain scarf.
I'm gonna try the tube with the size 17 needles later this afternoon. I hope it works !!!!

have a great day!!

Museum Quality Tube Scarf
(AKA "If it's good enough for the MFA, it's good enough for me!")

Materials:
3 balls Classic Elite La Gran mohair
2 balls Trendsetter Charm (novelty yarn) for scarf
1 ball Trendsetter Charm for fringe
set of sz 11 dpns or 16" circular

Gauge:
Roughly 3.5 = inch. Whatever produces an appropriately airy stitch that pleases you will be fine.

[Note: You can knit the Charm along with the mohair in every row, or add it in random stripes. I striped mine since the scarf seems to wrap more gracefully if there are spaces of plain stockinette mohair. If you choose to knit it through the whole scarf, do not use Charm in the eyelet row or the 2 knit rows that are on each end.]

Pattern:
Cast on 52 stitches with the mohair & join without twisting; place marker to indicate start of row.
Knit two rows.
Knit an eyelet row: *k2tog, yo*
Knit until you have about 1.5 yards of mohair left. [see note]
Knit an eyelet row: *k2tog, yo*
Knit two rows.
Bind off loosely.

Lay out the scarf and line up the eyelets, making sure that the scarf is not twisted at all. You should have 13 eyelets. Measure out 26 equal lengths of the reserved ball of Charm, however long you like your fringe (this looks good with a dramatic long fringe). Knot two pieces through each eyelet. Add more if you like, for a fuller fringe.

Tube Scarf #2
I knitted my tube scarf after seeing one at a crafts fair. Pretty basic concept that can probably be knit up in any gauge, sized to the owner. I was on a knitting gift frenzy with them so many years ago, that I was totally bowled over by the many requests for their directions. Since it was so many years ago, the directions are somewhat loose, ( like I have no idea what size circular needles I used) but I'm sure even the most novice knitter can whip one up in a weekend!

Finished size:
28.5 x 18 inches

The size was determined as I was knitting it up; wide enough to fit comfortably over my face/head, and long enough so that when the top of the back of the tube was pulled over my head -hood style- there was not to much bunching at the back of the neck, and the bottom of the tube was comfortably long enough to be caught by the back neck of my coat.

The gauge is about 8.5 stitches to 4 inches
This is approximate. It could be looser or tighter depending on the weight of the yarn.

Materials:
I used mohair but anything sorta hairy and soft would work as well.

Finishing:
Black marabou ( for those of you who don't know,) is the fuzzy very light hairy stuff that comes on fancy bedroom mules that 1930 movie stars wore. I bought it in a trimmings store in NYC like a skinny rope. You might be able to get it in a fabric store or crafts store. It is not expensive.

I just cut the marabou to the size of the opening and whip stitched it to the knitting.

Thanks dorothy, I didn't ask for this pattern, but am glad someone else did. I will certainly try it out. It sounds great.

[> Re: tube scarf pattern pls? -- pat, 14:27:10 02/16/04 Mon [1]

does anyone know if this can be crocheted & know the pattern?
Thanks

Joycel, would you be willing to share the crochet pattern? That would be neat for my little great-nephews and nieces. Is it real hard though? I am very much a beginner at crocheting. Thanks a lot and I will try to find a knitted pattern for you.

[> Re: KNITTED pillow pets -- joy ce1, 18:47:55 01/20/04 Tue [1]

Sharlet:
Found the pattern for the pillow pets on this site:

If it doesn't work email me at

Hi ladies, it's all the craze here in Australia to knit scarves with feather wool. I would like a pattern for a shawl in this wool, can anyone help please. Lilian

Hope it's okay to chime in .....

Look here for three free patterns:

http://www.macphersoncrafts.com/FreePro ... Shawls.htm

I'm afraid I don't knit, but I'd think you could use whatever yarn you wanted to make one. If these don't work, try searching under "eyelash yarn" and you might have better luck in finding something you like.

Hope this helps!

Bumping this up & Hoping someone can help my Mum find a pattern.

Just my nikles worth.
Thank you so much for your reply. I have just started using eye lash wool for scarves, and when I typed that in there are so many patterns there, I have bookmarked the site in favourites. Thanks again. Lilian

Links: Circular Needles

Subject: Circulare Kniting Needle Pattern

I just bought a circular knitting needle and need help in learning how to use it. Can anyone help?

[> Re: Circulare Kniting Needle Pattern -- Hen, 21:18:07 02/17/04 Tue [1]

Use it just the same as the regular kind of kniting needles. You put a needle in each hand they are just joined is the only difference. Hope this helps. Hen

[> [> Re: Circulare Kniting Needle Pattern -- Dorothy, 06:32:35 02/18/04 Wed [1]

LOL! Laughing first thing in the morning makes my day!
I figured the part out already that I had to have a needle in each hand!
What I'm wondering is if eventually the knitting will turn out circular. Have a good day!

[> Re: Circulare Kniting Needle Pattern -- Joan (UK), 08:50:57 02/18/04 Wed [1]

Hi, Dorothy

I always use circular needles when I am knitting.
It is possible to just keep knitting from the left needle to the right and create a tube ... ie, no need to sew up side seams. However I use them as I would a pair of needles, that way I don't poke my elbows into the person sitting next to me, particularly when I am travelling on a coach or train . I always used to knit on the plane ... it's amazing how much you can knit when completing an 8 hour flight, but following the dreadful events of Sept 11th, needles, being classed as sharp instruments, are now banned.

Enjoy your new knitting experience.
Joan

[> Re: Circulare Kniting Needle Pattern -- Mother Hen - Dorothy - Pa., 08:52:51 02/18/04 Wed [1]

Dorothy, If you Knit back and forth with the circular needles , the pattern comes out just as if you had 2 seperate needles.
The circular needle helps you to join the yarn ends by slipping ,
Oh well give a look at these sites !!!
