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.

This is a fun easy pattern - no extras needed.

The pattern is a multiple of 3 so I increased my edge to 5 stitches of garter stitch so that I would have thirty stitches to work with in the middle.

Row 1: Knit 5 for border, K1, wrap three stitches around the right hand needle (not too tightly), repeat to the border, knit 5. Note: that's what I did for the image. However, I think it's a bit too much and I'm going to rip mine out and wrap only twice and see if that makes a difference. Play around with it - this one will go quickly.
Row 2: Knit 5. Sip 3 stitches purl wise with the yarn in back of the work, to the right hand needle, dropping all wraps. Insert the left hand needle from right to left through the loops to create the twist on the left needle. Knit all three together. Yarn Over. Repeat this to the border, Knit 5.

Row 2.5: At this point you must increase the border to accommodate for the length of the dropped stitches. I knitted 5, turned, knitted 5, turned knitted 5 before continuing on the next full row.

Row 3: Knit the first stitch, once in the back, once in the front, and once more in the back. *knit 1, knit 1 in the back and once in the front, (K1-b/f)repeat from * to the border, Knit 5.

Row 3.5: increase the border on this side in the same manner as row 2.5, before continuing with rows 4 - 6.

Rows 4 - 6 Knit all stitches.

Happy Knitting!

Just Wondering: How is everyone doing? Anyone want to send images to show off? I've received Babette's finished scarf. She decided to just do the basket weave for the whole thing and add fringes. It's beautiful! See below.
