FO A Scarf for Drea
2 Attachment(s)
:roflhard: :roflhard: :roflhard: This scarf ended up really long! I thought I would make a fashion scarf for my DN. This is an example of why swatches should be washed and blocked kids :teehee:

I used the Woven Stitch and it was knitted in Ivy League Cotton Worsted

I cast on 232 stitches, long tail cast on, size 9 needle; knit it in a size 7, 3 stitches on the end of each row were done in the seed stitch. 4 pattern repeats, knit one row, purl one row, and then bind off. It is 5" wide and nearly 8 feet long, including the tassels.

Well, every inch of it looks beautiful. i love the way the color changes are patterning.

That's lovely. :thumbsup: Very beautifully done. I like the way the colors worked out too. I always wash and machine dry my Peaches & Creme, I never even thought about blocking it. Something different to consider. Thanks!

:teehee: Absolutely! Got my blocking materials together so now I am a blocking fool. That is the "Moondance Wingspan", also for my DN. She doesn't know about the scarf, if I can manage to contain myself it will be a surprise. Scarf pin arrived yesterday, so it is time to pull this package together.

Hey look at it this way, plenty to wrap around and keep warm. It looks good even with the length!!!

It really looks great with the yarn you chose! Great work, Claire! An extra long scarf is better than a too short scarf! It has so many ways to be worn!
