WIP: My It Scarf

17 Nov

Finally, here are pics of the completed scarf I have been talking and talking and talking about.  I love it and will wear it all winter. It’s super warm and I just love this pattern!  It’s pretty much a beginner pattern all knits and slipped stitches.  Slipped stitches pretty much means passing the stitch from one needle to the other without knitting it.  In this particular pattern, you bring the yarn to the front, slip the stitch, and the bring the yarn to the back to knit your next stitch and voila! Beautiful squishy scarf made.

As I previously blogged:
I adapted the free pattern by Misti Alpaca found here.

I casted on 23 stitches and used the rib pattern from the “Misti Chunky Ribs & Ruffles Scarf”:

“Row one rib pattern: *knit three, bring yarn forward, slip stitch as if to purl, bring yarn back, repeat pattern from *, end with knit three…

Row two rib pattern: knit one, bring yarn forward, slip stitch as if to purl, bring yarn back, *knit three, bring yarn forward, slip stitch as if to purl, bring yarn back, repeat pattern from *, end with knit one.”

Ps. If you wonder what the heck makes me be so in love with this scarf when it’s really a simple scarf, it really has to do with the yarn, which as I have previously explained I love.  It’s Cascade Venezia in Bulky weight.  It is 70% merino wool and 30% silk and that is why I love it! It’s deliciously soft! 🙂
