Look what you guys have done to me! All this talk of Malabrigo, Malabrigo, Mmmmmmalabrigo -- I could no longer resist! I bought one hank and made a Scrunchable Scarf. I cast-on 20 sts. and knitted until I ran out of yarn. The scarf ended up being about 3.25 inches wide and 6 feet long!! It's just yummy!

Now, I'm hopelessly hooked on Mmmmmalabrigo! There will be more of this yarn in my future -- the very near future. :inlove: :inlove:

Wow! That is gorgeous!! :inlove:

It's too bad I'm such a sloooooooooooooow knitter and have to finish what I'm working on...I am dying to buy my first hank of malabrigo!!

I do have a question, though. I "googled" the pattern for the scrunchable scarf, and it seems really straightforward, but I was confused on one thing. What does the last part of this mean:

Cast on a multiple of 3 sts (plus one on each edge for a selvage).

I've seen that in other patterns; I was just never sure what it meant!

You slip the first stitch on each row (as if you were going to purl it, but don't) and knit the last stitch on each row.

Thank you everyone!

beloved -- I can't wait to see yours -- that lime and blue colorway sounds so pretty! :inlove:

IrishKnitter -- Yep, just as frisky said, you cast-on two "extra" stitches, then slip the first stitch purl-wise and knit the last on every row. It makes a nice, neat, smooth edge on the scarf.

blueeyes -- I've never ordered from Webs, so I don't know how long they take. I hope you get your yarn soon though! What color did you get?

oh no.... I just realized I've been slipping my stitches knit-wise and not purl-wise! :doh I'm about 8 inches into it... is it worth it to rip it out and start over? or should I just leave it? It's doesn't look *that* bad...

I think it's totally up to you! If you're happy with the way it looks, I'd leave it, but if you think it would bug you later, then I'd redo it.

So much for will power! :roll:
