The scarf that will become a throw WIP
I learned that basket weave stitch existed right here on good ole KH. I had to find a way to try it out so i decided to make hubby dear and new scarf. I had about 2 feet done (35 stitches wide, size 10 needles) when i went to the store and picked up some lion brand thick and quick that was on sale. I decided to use it to make a quick scarf for me. When it was finished, i didn't like it. So i picked out the bind off and made it longer and gave it to hubby.
This left me with the basket weave scarf. I didn't want to frog it cause I really liked the way it looked so I decided to make several strips and sew them together into a throw. We're big snuggle up on the couch with a throw people around here.



And since I'd never posted anything in this ara of the borad I figured this was a good thing to start with. I could like some help for sewing it together when the time comes. Thanks

Great woodsy color combo going on there! I like it! Thanks for sharing your photo with us! Great all around! Try doing an invisible seam stitch. Amy has seaming videos for you to look at.
