The red thing is done and blocked…
Pattern: Gossamer stars scarf from Interweave Knits Summer 2008. I made it slightly narrower by casting on 53 sts and working only 6 repeats each row. Worked out to about 8 inches wide and 58 inches long.
Yarn: The Knittery‘s Merino Chubby Sock yarn in Merlot, 1 skein.
I made it for my friend N’s birthday, and I’m glad to say that she loves it 🙂 I love this pattern. The motif keep changing, which kept my interest level up, but not so complicated that I have to keep looking at the chart. Also, as the pattern alternates between stocking stitch background and reverse stocking stitch, it makes the scarf sort of reversible — not identical on both sides, but it does look good from both sides, so I like it. In fact I like it enough to make a second one, this time in blue, for another friend’s birthday. Here it is, also done and blocked.
Pattern: Gossamer stars scarf from Interweave Knits Summer 2008. I made this one narrower still (by casting on 37 sts and working only 4 repeats each row) but longer (added one extra repeat of the patterns). Worked out to be 7 inches wide and 80 inches long.
Yarn: Grignasco Champagne in light blue, 2 balls.
