At the Knitters Fair, a couple of weeks ago, I spotted a scarf on display that interested me. Some booth keepers at these types of events are very closed mouthed about their designs/ideas. But this particular booth person was very open and shared with me exactly how she had done the scarf.
And so, I did what I do best - I copied. Last week, when I arrived at the stop sign that was the puzzle about how to do the fair isle short rows in my 50th Anniversary Sweater, Laurie M gave me a great suggestion. She suggested I put my knitting in a time out. Good idea, Laurie. I started the scarf.
This scarf starts with a band of non curling knitting - I did seed stitch. Following that, the stitches are divided into thirds and knitted separately. Each third being knit with a different yarn.
I can just hear the teacher saying " My, you copy well."
