Yet Another One Row Handspun Scarf

Oh Malabrigo or should I say Mmmmmmmalabrigo. Certainly soft as buttah but a bitch to wind. I had to keep pausing while winding because the yarn kept sticking to itself. Also, as the yarn is so soft, I’ve to wonder how well the scarf will hold up. I’ll be hesitant to use this for a sweater. Perhaps knitting at a smaller gauge might help.

The pattern is bloody fantastic for a quick gift which is just what I need as this scarf is supposed to be a gift. Knit in a worsted weight, it certainly went a lot faster than my first One Row Handspun Scarf which was done in DK weight.

PatternOne Row Handspun Scarf

Size: ~ 70″ x 4.5″

Yarn: 1 x Malabrigo Yarn Merino Worsted in Fucsia

Needle: 5.0mm

I cast on only 22 stitches for a narrower scarf and slipped the first stitch purlwise with yarn in front for a neat edge.

They’re not kidding when they say Malabrigo grows. The scarf was about 59″ x 4.5″ pre-blocked. After giving it a soak and laying it out to dry flat, the scarf was about 70″ x 4.5″. While I certainly like the extra length, I prefer the thick squishiness of the pre-blocked scarf.

I also have this problem with the cast-on and bind-off edges being wider than the rest of the scarf (happens with most scarves I knit). How do you remedy this?

    • Yes, I suppose I can try that. The funny thing is I used to have the opposite problem, at least I did with Branching Out IIRC. I must have loosened up a lot after reading soooo much about knitters with cast-ons and bind-offs that were too tight.
