I knit up yet another scarf, this time a gift to my sister-in-law for her birthday. The colors are so perfect for her. She's wears a lot of soft pastels (as you can see by her yellow sweater in the above photo) and she also loves jewel colors. This yarn was just perfect for her.
I had so much trouble with the edges curling up...this has never happened to me before. No amount of blocking would help to set it straight. I have to wonder if it's the yarn blend that is the cause of this. Who knows. Anyway, I decided to crochet a little edge all the way around the scarf which did the trick to flatten down the sides so they didn't completely roll up. (Before and after below)
I used two skeins of Boutique Treasure wool/acrylic yarn in colorway Abstract
I used needle size US#10 and cast on 26 stitches, knitting until I used up almost all the yarn saving enough to crochet an edge around
It was such a lovely pattern to knit and reminded me just a little of knitting the star stitch which I used used to make this scarf.
No more scarves for now as I'm still working on Julen's leg warmers!
