Hello Everyone! We're on the home stretch!
Some people are starting to finish, or run out of yarn... :) I still have yarn and would like to add a few more inches to mine. Whenever you feel your scarf is done, please contact me at my personal email address for a mailing address: firstname.lastname@example.org. I'd really like to have all scarves by Oct. 4th. Be in touch if that's not do-able so that we can figure out what will be. The scarves I've seen look fabulous! If you'd like to send an image to post on the blog - feel free to send one to my email address.
This week's pattern:
This one turned out to be a bit more subtle than I thought it would. You will need a set of double pointed needles the same size as your current working needles and one pair of needles 3 sizes larger.
Row 1: Knit 5 stitches in our border pattern. Knit 1, purl 1, for the next 30 stitches. Knit last five stitches in the row into the border pattern.
Row 2 and 3, repeat row 1.
Row 4: knit first 5 stitches with a double pointed needle same size as the current working needle. Switch to larger needle and knit all 30 stitches. Switch back to smaller double pointed needle to knit off the last five stitches.
Row 5: knit the border with a double pointed smaller needle, switch to larger needle and purl all 30 stitches. switch back to smaller double pointed needle and knit off the last five stitches.
Row 6: same as row 4
Row 7: same as row 5
Row 8: stitch back to regular working needle (non-double point). Work entire row onto this needle. knit first five in border pattern. Slip the next five stitches onto the same size (smaller size) double pointed needle. Hold these to the front of the work. knit one from the double pointed needle, purl one from the back needle, five times. Repeat the previous twice more. You should have three "twists".
Repeat rows 1 - 8 three times.
