A very long scarf all curled up. I had to do something while watching 3 episodes of Shameless. The US version is very entertaining.
K4, P2, K2 til the end
Repeat until super long
It ends up stretchy because of the rib stitch.
A very mindless knit – just like I need if I am concentrating on the tv plot.
Does anyone have a mindless craft they do while watching tv? I’ve tried hand stitching hexies but nothing else other than the odd scarf.
I put this scarf together last night. I started with a light see thru black material with 22 inches wide by the width of the fabric. I serged the edges and ran 3 baste stitches down the centre of the scarf and 2 inches from each side. I was lazy when I gathered and went with a single baste row & thought I would take my chances against the thread breaking. After it was gathered, I ran a 3 step zigzag to hold the gathers in place.
It has been a cool summer here and my office is as cold as a fridge with the air conditioning.
The next time, I would make it slightly more narrow and longer. I am thinking 16 inches by 60 inches. But it will do the trick as is!
I also got my swap package mailed this morning. It should arrive in 6-12 days!
The easy pattern can be found on this blog.
I think this video is the best…lots of ideas for wearing it.
I cut this the length of the dress and 12.5 inches wide and had two pieces. Sew the two together at the short ends. Decorative stitched all the way around. Wet and knotted up. Will be a great airy crinkly summer scarf.
I used an old t-shirt, pair of scissors, needle & thread, and a button. I used two online tutorials. The first below was for the scarf and the other for the flower: http://youtu.be/-igOChKMjqM
