Anyone else want to knit this colorful scarf?
I think this Log Cabin scarf is so pretty. I am going to start it and wondered if anyone else is interested in Knitting Along with me? Here is is...

That scarf is beautiful! If I weren't about to start a clapotis and trying to finish a Lady E and a Lizard Ridge I would be joining you. I do think I'm going to have to get Folk Style there are so many cool patterns in this book. I look forward to seeing your scarf soon!

Quilt lady, I have about 5 projects started and none finished but I really want to do this one, so I think I am going to join you on this. It will be a slow go for me but I really like this one. Any yarn substitution suggestions?

Quiltlady,

I LOVE that scarf and it's on my queue. However, I need to finish a few things first as well.

I was just wondering if you were planning on using the kidsilk the pattern calls for or if you were substituting for the yarn.

If so, what are you thinking of using. I haven't started researching possible alternatives but I don't want to spend $13 a skein for the kidsilk.

Can't wait to see yours in progress.

Best,
Susan

I, like everyone else, have too many projects left undone in my 2 bags. I cannot wait to hear and see how the project goes. I fell in love with it the minute I saw it. What a perfect project for a beginner.

That's a gorgeous scarf! I bet it could be made with other like weight yarns. I'm thinking that a yarn with an interesting colorway could probably be substituted and then you wouldn't have to change yarns throughout. Just do the mitered squares. Noro yarns come to mind as I've done mitered squares with them and they turn out absolutely gorgeous!

Mitered squares are easy and fun. You cast on an even number of stitches and place a marker between the middle two stitches (so for a 20 stitch mitered square you would put the marker between stitches 10 and 11) For a scarf where you could see both sides you would probably do garter stitch, so knit every row. Every odd row you knit across to the last two stitches before the marker and K2tog, slip the marker then K2tog (sometimes ssk) then knit to the end of the row. Every even row you just knit across. So you are decreasing in the middle by 2 stitches every row. This causes the long edge to eventually be pulled up to make two of your sides. They are fun little squares to make.

I will give it a try!! Can you recommend a yarn?

Do you make all the squares and then sew them together?
