FO: Scarf and hat [edit:Sand Stitch scarf and hat]
Just finished these for my friend George's birthday. (The heart pillow I posted previously is actually for a grad present...I don't know why I posted it wrong. )

Yarn: Plymouth Encore Mega Colorspun #7123 ( I this yarn and color. I almost don't want to give it to her it's so nice! )

Pattern: I don't know if it's an actual pattern or if it's been posted by someone else. I started off going to do a scrunchable scarf, but I didn't like that the stitches came out differently. So, I ditched one of the stitches and did this:
Cast on 20 stitches.
Row 1: Knit and Purl across entire row.
Row 2: Knit across entire row.
Worked those two rows until I got about 60 inches. Used 3 balls of the yarn and one for the hat.
I did about an inch of 1x1 ribbing on the hat. On the smooth side, you can hardly tell, and on the bumpy side it's only a little more noticeable. Oh well.

The really neat thing is that I tried to hide the yarn joins and seams in the hat so that they are reversible. And it came out pretty well.

One side is all bumpy feeling, and the other is nice and smooth. I like the look of both. The scarf has fringes too, but the pic I took of them was all blurry.

Anyway, enough with the blathering, here's the pics! (Be warned, there's a few.)

Smooth sides:

Bumpy sides:

That is beautiful! Great job on the pattern, I'll have to give it a try sometime.

When asking questions ALWAYS post the name and a link for the pattern if you have it.

Thanks everyone. ^_^

The colors aren't nearly as muted as they are in the pics. I may have to pick some up for myself as I'm just in love with it.

FO: Scarf and hat
Hello everyone!

My name is Judy. I live in central Maine. I've been knitting for about 60 years...yes, 60 years...but I'm not old yet! I've been lurking about for months and have enjoyed every minute of it! This forum has the nicest group of ladies and men. I've come out of lurking mode to answer the question about whether the scarf and hat are an actual pattern or not.

Yes, this is an actual pattern. I'm presently working on a full-size afghan in this pattern. The pattern is called the sand stitch and the front is actually the bumpy side and the back the smooth side. I got the pattern in one of my 7 of the "Big Book of Knitting Stitch Patterns".

Happy knitting, all! :XX:
