In a similar manner to Jean I have been working on a simple scarf. Frankly, all the renovation and website-redesign is frazzling me to the extent that counting to 6 is becoming a challenge.
It’s in a lovely microfibre – Schachenmayr nomotta MicroColor – and a colour which reminds me of early autumn. I’ve had it for years, and it’s nice to finally find a use for it. The pattern, if you can call it that, is as follows:
Two balls of DK yarn at ~145m per ball
Using 4mm needles, cast on 72 stitches
Work in ‘feather and fan’ pattern:
1. knit 1 row
2. purl 1 row
3. 3 x (k2tog); * 6 x (yo, k1); 6 x (k2tog); rep from * to last 6 stitches; 3 x (k2tog)
4. knit 1 row
After working 4 repeats, change to 5 mm needles and continue in pattern.
Using the start of the second ball as reference, work until you have enough for 5 repeats.
Change back to 4mm needles and work 4 repeats
Knit 1 row
Cast off in Knit on the wrong side.
NOTE: I’ve not test knit this, so let me know if I’ve messed up too badly, please.
