Gifties: First Ever Stripey Scarf

7 Aug

Oh Craft Blog, I am so sorry that I’ve neglected you!! I’ve been terribly busy this summer, but that’s for another post. And I know that excuses won’t take away the pain, but hey, guess what? I’M BACK!

So I finished this scarf for my boyfriend Tim back in May, I think. Yup, just in time for summer!

So yeah, green & black stripes! First time doing colored stripes, so to keep it easy I just did a stockinette stitch. I used my trusty 7 circular needles, and did 42 stitches across and kept on knitting for about 58 inches. The green stripes are all different sizes; Id like to say its because Im creative, but really its becasue I fudged up the first few stripes so I just went with it! Oh, and used cotton yarn so it can be machine-washed for easy care.

So yeah, as he requested: green and black stripes! First time doing colored stripes, so to keep it easy I just did a garter stitch. I used my trusty 7 circular needles, and did 42 stitches across and kept on knitting for about 58 inches. The green stripes are all different lengths; I'd like to say it's because I'm creative, but really it's because I fudged up the first few stripes so I just went with it! Oh, and used Berroco Comfort (in Liquorice and Lovage) for its softness and washability. The edges are a bit wobbly but maybe it'll straighten out once it has been washed a few times...

I wanted to make it long enough to be able to wrap around a few times for extra warmth in the winter. Which isnt really necessary this time of year: in the middle of summer in New England...
