Wow. Looks like I haven’t posted in forever. I lost my knitting mojo for a while but I’m now slowly getting it back. I love knitting but living in a tropical country where I’ll never get to wear beautiful hand-knit wool sweaters gets a bit discouraging some time. Most of the time, I’ll just substitute with plant-based yarn but we all know that doesn’t work all the time and it’s just not the same.
Right. Enough with the woe cake and on to the FO. Again, this is a scarf I knitted for charity. Like the One Row Handspun Scarf, it’s wonderful mindless commute knitting but it doesn’t go as fast.
Pattern: Scrappy Lengthwise Scarf
Size: ~ 60″ x 5.75″
Yarn: Slightly less than 1 x Spotlight Basics 8 Ply Acrylic
The original pattern has the scarf knitted lengthwise. That wasn’t very portable for me so I knitted it widthwise. I cast on 30 stitches and just knitted till the yarn ran out.
Anyone who’s interested in knitting this pattern should take note to use a needle size larger than the one normally used for the yarn.
I really like the woven look of this pattern. Must knit one for myself!
