Another project I made for a Christmas present this year was this scarf. I found the pattern from Debbie Bliss’s book The Knitter’s Year (as you can tell, I’m a big fan of that book!) And it was pretty cool project to undertake. I had purchased fisherman’s wool a couple weeks before, and jumped on the opportunity to use it, but the pattern suggests using two different color cotton yards.
I suggest looking up Debbie’s Bliss’ book for the entire pattern, but to achieve this curved stitch is super easy.
- Row 1: Knit
- Row 2: Purl
- Row 3: Knit 2 stitches together for 3 stitches – yarn over 6 stitches – knit 2 stitches together for 6 stitches – yarn over 6 stitches – knit 2 stitches together for 2 stitches
- Row 4: Knit
The pattern creates this awesome lace detail and, of course, the curved look.
So if you have a boring afternoon, just pick up some size 3 knitting needles. It’s simple and you can most definitely do it!
