I saw the pattern and had to make it! It's great, it only took 2 days. I made it with a bulkier yarn and a larger hook (Lion Brand Homespun and size Q, instead of Bernat Solo and size K) so it came out big enough to fit on my large head without squooshing my hair down.
It was very simple - just start a new color where you want the stripe to start, cut off the new and old colors about six inches out, and knot them together. When you're done knitting, weave all the loose ends in with a yarn needle.
If anyone's curious, I used all but the last four pairs of pegs on the long loom, and the stripe pattern is 7 rows dark, 7 rows light, 3 rows dark, 7 rows light. The colors are Edwardian and Granite in Lion Brand Homespun.
I adapted this from a REALLY frilly pattern - I meant to do the whole thing, but got really sick of all those roses while I was doing the center part It originally was supposed to have an obnoxious rose border all the way around, so that had to go. And it had a cheesy quote at the top, that had to go too. So here's what's left!
Ok, it's nothing special, but I'm proud of it. I made it on a Knifty Knitter, using two skeins of Lion Brand Homespun in Prairie. It came out quite a bit bigger than I expected, but I like it!
If anyone's interested, let me know and I'll post my method for getting the scarf off of the Knifty Knitter without using a crochet hook.
Sorry, looking a bit frazzled here!
Close-up so you can see the detail (or lack thereof!)
To get your scarf off of the loom, find the first peg you would be pulling off if you were doing another row, and call it peg 1. The peg across from it is then peg 2, the peg above it is peg 3, and so on...
35 36 33 34 . . . 3 4 1 2
Take the loop on peg 2, and flip it over onto peg 1. Pull the bottom loop on peg 1 over, then flip the remaining loop back over onto peg 2.
Take the loop on peg 3, and flip it over onto peg 2. Pull the bottom loop on peg 2 over, then flip the remaining loop back over onto peg 3.
Repeat until you get to one last loop on peg 36 (this will be the one with a tail). Pull the last loop off, pull the tail through it and tighten. Voila!
This basically just mimics the crocheting on the pegs. It's more work, but saves you from carrying an extra tool around. If you change your mind and prefer to do the crocheting, though, they're selling the correct size crochet hook in the Dollar Spot at Target for - yep, you guessed it - a dollar! You get a smaller hook as well.
