Went to my South Sound Knitters' Guild Meeting on Sunday afternoon, held in our LYS. Surrounded by oodles of yummy yarns...I fell prey to the wonderful Mini Mochi yarns by Crystal Palace! Oy vey!

Anyway, I bought 3 balls of a pastel colorway #111.
Will knit 1 scarf per ball. Finished #1 today!

It's 3"x52" in 2x2 rib with an edge stitch on each end.
Not a particulary innovative pattern, eh? but I wanted a really simple pattern to lay down on this beautiful colorway. The 2x2 rib unstretched looks rather like st st...but without the curl...and it's real "cushy" feeling!

Here is my pattern:
With US8, cast on 30st.
Work a foundation row: purl across all stitches
Change to a US9, and begin working the Rib Pattern as follows:
RS Row 1: K1, (K2P2)x7, end K1.
WS Row 2: repeat Row 1
Continue Rows 1 & 2 til desired length.
End with a WS by working ‘Purl Only’ as you bind off.

The purpose of the initial ‘foundation row’ is to give a slight ‘flare’ to the end of the scarf.
It is ‘a look’ that I like.
The purpose of using a US8 for cast-on and the foundation row is ‘neatness’.
The US9 for cast-on and foundation row is just too darn messy with this yarn!

Bianca's scarf.

Those are all great colors...I think I like 105 best. So....these all just used one skein per scarf? Where's the best on-line site to get this yarn? I may just need some, too:teehee:

Yes, just one skein. The scarf is only 3" wide when the ribs are accordioned together. But it is long! Perfect for a little kid to wear it in lots of configurations!

I dunno where to buy it online. It leaped into my arms at the LYS about 10 days ago! I've been crazy knitting on it since!

It is a Crystal Palace yarn. So, try WEBS first. Then Jimmy Beans.

I googled it and got lots of hits. Yarnmarket (http://www.yarnmarket.com/yarn/Crystal_Palace_Yarn-Mini_Mochi_Yarn-5346.html) has it!
