The Plan

Update 2017. While we hoped we could revive this project it has not happened. If anyone is interested in taking over, please leave a comment.

Knit lots of hats and scarves for patients and survivors or breast and ovarian cancers to be donated to the Komen Foundation for the Cure, Philadelphia Affiliate. We fully support monetary fund raising efforts for the cure. But we also want to do something which will go directly to those who need to know there are people rooting for their health and survival. All skill levels are welcome!

Please join us! The 2011 project ends Sept. 15th.

Folded Fabric

Hello All - I'm back. My eye is pretty much all better. I go back on Friday to get the final okay. Thanks for the well wishes. :)

This week we are doing Folded Fabric from our reversible knitting book. This pattern is pretty easy. It's basically a wide rib with a funky tuck.The pattern in the book calls for a repeat of 12, but now I wish I would have done a repeat of 10. This would have given me a wider border of garter stitch (5 sts as opposed to 2). But since I goofed up the heart, and tore that out and started again - and then I goofed this pattern up too because I didn't pay attention. I don't feel like ripping out again. I will write out what I did, and if all of this makes sense to you - feel free to adjust as you wish.

Note: You will need one double pointed needed for the tucks.

rows 1 - 8: knit 2, * knit 6, purl 6; repeat from * until the last two stitches. Knit 2.
row 9: Knit 2 for garter stitch border.
* Then, rotate the work toward you so that you see the "back" of the work and the needle is on the bottom. (see image)
With the double pointed needle, pick up stitches 6, 5, 4 from the corresponding box, 7 rows away from the needle. Knit 2 together, one stitch from the regular needle the other from the double pointed needle, 3 times. Knit 3 more, then purl 6. Repeat from * two more times. Knit 2.

Repeat rows 1 - 9 four times for our scarf.

Happy Knitting!


  1. Glad you are feeling better!! This is a very cool pattern and I made the modifications you talked about for the boarder.

    Here they are:
    (Row 1 -6): K4, "K4, P4" 4 times, K4
    (Row 7): K4, * Pick up #4 and #3 from the corresponding box - knit together as per your instructions, K2, P4, repeat * until boarder - K4

    See you on Friday for my next post :)

  2. And by the way, I love the fact that this funky pattern you found comes right after the heart...

  3. Guess what? I discovered, (through a mistake because I was daydreaming), that if you increase the row by two, each time you do the repeat, that the puff builds up the row. It is really beautiful.

    i.e. Do six rows then double needle row, then do eight rows then the double needle row, etc...

    I'll include this image when I post the next pattern.
