This is the first FO that I've posted here...I used the scrunchable scarf pattern in Malabrigo Chunky yarn. It's a gift for me! :teehee:

I was HORRIBLE at purling before knitting this scarf...it really helped me get better! It turned out a lot wider than I intended it to, but I am pretty happy with it.

That's such a great pattern, isn't it? I made as one of my first few projects and it helped me with my knitting and purling, too. Great job!!

Thanks everyone for all the replies! :muah:

wandaweberg, if you google the term "scrunchable scarf," the pattern will come up. Also, if you do a search on the "whatcha knitting" forum here on KH, you'll find some GORGEOUS :inlove: pics of others' scrunchable scarves.

Here's the pattern in a nutshell:
Cast on a multiple of 3 stitches, plus 2 extra.

On each row, slip the first stitch (as if to purl).
Then, the pattern is K2 P1 until you have one stitch left, which you knit.

Make it as long or as wide as you want!

Here's the link to the pattern: http://www.knitlist.com/96gift/giftsscarf.htm

Thanks so much for your reply!! I totally love that scarf and your knitting is so pretty!

Edited to add: On each row, slip the first stitch (as if to purl).

What does this mean? I actually purl it? Or just slip the yarn to the needle? I am a novice.

how many stitches did you cast on and what needle size?

You insert the needle into the first stitch as if you're going to purl it, but just slip it onto the right needle. THEN start your K2, P1 pattern.

I used chunky yarn on size 11 needles. I cast on 29 stitches.

Good luck!! :thumbsup:
