Some days, I get so excited about knitting that I tend to get carried away. This was one of those days. I was making a cute tea cosy that looks like a cabled sweater (see the free pattern here). I couldn’t wait to see how it would turn out.
I will admit, I may or may not have also been distracted by the TV. And I didn’t count the cables correctly. All this excitement and distraction resulted in the little sweater having one side longer than the other. Oops! Read more
How can something so easy look so fabulous? Nobody will believe you when you tell them its a knit!
I love this scarf so much. The pattern gives it such an interesting textured look. There’s no need to sew in the loose ends as they create the fringe. You may want to knot the tips to prevent fraying.
This scarf is knitted length-wise, not from the bottom up as most scarves are. It’s done in a seed (or moss) stitch to give the scarf more texture. I’ve used a velour type yarn, but it will work with any yarn, really. I chose this yarn simply because I liked the feel of it.
