Introducing…. A Free Pattern!
My first free pattern! Indeed! I did it!Finally!The specifics:Pattern: The Not-Quite-Straight ScarfNeedles: US 9 (I used my Brittany Birch ones, always a treat with scarves)Yarn: Andean Silk from KnitpicksDescription: This scarf is knit on a bias so that the ridges of reverse stockinette create diagonal lines. It is incredibly beginner friendly and unlike many bias-knit scarves, it features squared ends instead of points.The pattern is simple to memorize and simpler to execute.I designed it because I wanted to make a scarf for my brother for Christmas. I wanted something less boring that garter stitch or ribbing but still something that could be masculine. His version is in black. You can see more photos of both the red and black versions on my flickr site (see the sidebar to the right).In additional to being available on my Free Patterns Page -Heres the link to the PDF: Not-Quite-Straight-ScarfI’ll only have it there until the new Google platypus Gdrive finally happens (google it – it’s going to be amazing)- then I’m going to host it over there.In the meantime, send me links of your finished scarves – I’ll love to make a gallery of them sometime… I hope you enjoy the pattern – let me know if you have problems (this is the first time I’ve written a pattern, be easy on me).(Oh – and the people modelling the scarves on this post are not me. They are my friends Leah and Kyle). Oh – and an update on the sock curse – for now, my boyfriend and I are giving it another try. But there’s no way I’m knitting the other sock anytime soon. Thanks for all your encouragement by the way. You all are great!
