Here’s the yarn I picked for this project tomorrow.
I’m so excited – if it weren’t a knit-along, I’d start it right now, but I’ve got to wait. Of course, I could just swatch it up – that wouldn’t count, would it? Hmmmm…
So, join us tomorrow and have some fun.
In case you missed the pattern, here it is again:
On a size 10 1/2 needles, your scarf will be approximately 5″ wide and 54″ long.
Gauge is about 3 stitches to the inch.
You’ll need about 200 yards of yarn.
Cast on 1 stitch
Row 1: Increase 1 in this stitch by knitting in the front and back of the stitch (2 stitches)
Row 2: Increase in first stitch; knit to end (3 stitches)
Repeat Row 2 until one side edge triangle measures 5″
Begin short row section:
Short Row Section:
Row 1: Increase 1 in the first stitch, Knit 2 together (k2tog), turn work around
Row 2 and all even numbered rows: Knit
Row 3: Increase 1 in the first stitch, knit 1, k2tog, turn.
Row 5: Increase 1 in the first stitch, knit 2, k2tog, turn.
Row 7: Increase 1 in the first stitch, knit 3, k2tog, turn.
Continue the short row section as established, increasing the number of stitches knit between the increase and k2tog by 1 stitch in every odd-numbered. You will soon find that you don’t need to count, as k2tog is done on the two stitches on either side of the gap in order to close the space. Work until the last two stitches of the row have been knit together. Turn. You should now have all the stitches on the needle in your left hand.
Repeat the short row section until you have about 8 yards of yarn remaining.
Finishing the Corner:
Count the number of stitches on your needle before you begin this section. Work short rows as established until half of the stitches have been worked. (round the number up to the next whole number if needed). Then, knit2tog at the beginning of each odd-numbered row. Work until 2 stitches remain. Knit them together and fasten off.
