Pucker Up with Kiss Kiss Yarn!

Novelty yarn is fun, fun, fun...and fast to knit up super cool scarves! This scarf pattern uses only one skein of Filatura Di Crossa Kiss Kiss yarn.

SIZE One size
• 1 hank Filatura Di Crosa KISS
KISS 65% acrylic, 20% wool, 15% polyester (3.5oz/1OOg; 11yds/1Om) in color #15 coral reef
• One pair size 7 (4.5mm) needles
6" in circumference x 52" long/15cm x
Gauge is not essential to this project.
This is a ladder-type yarn with
decorative boucle pigtails strung along a ladder (or railroad track) of yarn, into which the pick-up east-on and knit stitches are worked.
You will work into every space between
rungs of the ladder (please note that
there may be 2 or 3 strands of yam [joining the side rails of the ladder] between the wider openings- the wider opening counts as the pick-up area).
To cast on, you will "thread" the tip of the needle into successive openings in the ladder, picking up your "east-on" stitches.
"Cast on" 3 stitches, as instructed above. Turn needle.
Row 1 * Place the tip of the right-hand needle into

the first east-on stitch and then pick up the next
space along ladder of the yarn by wrapping it around the needle as if to knit. Pull the new stitch through

the "east-on" stitch; repeat from * across row- 3

stitches. Turn needle.

Continue to repeat Row 1, until you are near the end of the hank of yarn.
NOTE: The scarf will naturally form a spiral.

Bind off all stitches knitwise.
