mentioned that I had originally thought that I would do a bit of a sampler scarf to try out new stitches but in the end I only had courage for three basic stitches: moss, stockinette and plain knit. Where I did stockinette stitch I did 4 knit stitches at the beginning and end of each row to help the scarf with not rolling too much. It still rolls!I used 3.5 needles and cast on 43 stitches. It is about 19cm in width when not rolled but of course the sides roll to a fraction of that. It is about 88cm in length.
I also did a button hole, mainly for practice, but also as a 'design feature' so that the scarf wouldn't need to be as long and could be threaded through, with the scarf staying nicely in place. Ben, on constant lookout for choking hazards thinks the hole and this feature is a problem. Me, I just think the hole is badly done. But it is there now.
and even wore it around outside for about 20 minutes. I think I can call this a success.
BTW: The extremely cool tshirt Oliver is wearing is from Engram Clothing on Etsy.
