FO: Ribbon Scarf
I'm going to a "Knitting Surprise" meetup on next Saturday, with the theme: What Can You Do with Two?"...a two skein challenge. I'm supposed to drop off my 2-skein wonder to the hostess one day prior to the meetup at her home. So that leads me to believe that the knitted items will be distributed in a random drawing, or something.

Anyhoo, I had two balls of this fantastic ribbon...that I had my heart set on...but I went ahead and used them for this scarf.

US15 needles...3st garter edges...st st in the middle. Kind of a no-brainer design...but variegated ribbon yarn should be the main feature, right? So I thought a simple st st would best display the ribbon and the Fall Leaves colorway.


So here it is:

Gorgeous! Is the ribbon hard to work with?

Amazing colors! I think you made the perfect choice ... the simple design really shows off the yarn!

It was quite easy and fun to work with! Very different! I'm going to take a peek at Joann's to see if they still carry it!

It's beautiful! The ribbon yarn sure makes a statement doesn't it? I've always loved how it works up. I also like to do drop stitch or twisted drop stitch scarves with it. I think I have some of that colorway in my stash - may have to dig it out! LOL

That is truly unique!
I'm curious, what does it feel like knitted up?

That will sure liven up an outfit! Is it just pretty...or is it warm if you wrap it on your neck?

I have some that I wondered what to do with..maybe use it together with a worsted for warmth
