So I've decided to start this series to keep me knitting (so selfish, I know) and to encourage my fellow e-knitters to do the same. Each Er...On any given crafty Monday, I'll share a project--completed or in progress. A good bit of my projects will be knitting, but I flex my other craft bones from time to time. Please feel free to share links to any crafty project you're into as well! Whenever I figure out how to work a linky, I'll add that feature so we can see thumbnails of your projects too!
Based on several patterns I've seen online, I'm making this super-long, super-stretchy scarf using a size 13 needle with bulky yarn that is meant for a size 9. By increasing the size of the needle, this beautiful pattern is stretched out a bit and takes on a more textured look. Roughly, the pattern goes something like this...
CO 27 stitches
Rows 1-3: K3, P3 rib pattern
Rows 4-6: P3, K3 rib pattern
Repeat alternating pattern until you reach the desired length for your end.
Scarf Knit Pattern:
Row 1: K3, P3 *repeat
Row 2: K1, P1 *repeat
Repeat scarf knit pattern until you reach the desired length.
Repeat First End pattern.
I hope that made since. I'm a year into teaching myself to knit. One day, I will read a proper manual and learn all the proper jargon. Maybe. Do you knit? What are you making today?
