WIP finished!

I finally finished my scarf last night. I wanted it long so I could pretend to be Isadora Duncan in my car (not really).




It's a spring scarf, as it's not quite warm enough to have bare necks but too hot to be all bundled up. I love the wavy texture and the way it flows.


If you want the pattern - which is EASY - here it is.

I used two yarns - 4 ply grey and 2 ply dusky pink and knitted on 6.5mm needles. You'll have to swatch it up to get the effect you want - but you can use pretty much any gauge or any yarn and just adjust the number of stitches.

Cast on 35 stitches (or any multiple of 3, plus 2 extra for a wider or narrower scarf)

k1, *k1, yo, k2tog repeat from *, k1

Continue until your scarf is long enough!

Great views, and fab scarf. I need a spring scarf so I might have to pinch that pattern. I just used garter stitch for my winter one (I never did blog that did I?) so it was nice I warm but I like the nice lacy look that patterns made. Yummy.

Nice scarf - and my kind of pattern! having said that I started a scarf about four years ago, but it's still not done. I might have to give up, frog it and crochet instead.

Great idea - combining the yarns! The close up photo helps as well to see what the lacy effect is. I would like to try this one! Thanks for the instructions.

Well I WAS really pleased with it, but my dog has just eaten it. Anyone want a dalmatian?

blossomsmum said...

Love the scarf, and ty for the PASS(page and spec saver).lol.x

kerri said...

Oh no! Poor you. Well I guess there won't be any treats for the dalmation for a bit.

Are you going to make a new one?

Nice scarf! (Did your dog really eat it?)
I've never knitted before. I'm always in awe at those who do.
