My friend Patti-Ann warned me about the pattern for the Bernat Diagonal Scarf. She described it as nearly doing her in. Boldly, after a few completed inches I publicly proclaimed, here on the blog, that I had it conquered.
My words have - many rows back - been eaten.
Understand that every row in this scarf is a short row. For me the confusion came when I turned at the end of the short row.
Sometimes Often, I would naturally convert to purling after finishing a knit row. With this pattern though, there are two knit rows, then one purl row. Always! I am embarrassed to tell you how much of the scarf I knit before realizing that. But the last half went well.
The colours in this yarn are it’s redeeming feature. The colours are what made me break my own rule of never knitting with non-natural fibres. This is Bernat Mosaic. 100% Acrylic. There I said it. The ‘A’’ word. Here on my blog. But I do love the colours.
It will make a wonderfully bright, cheerful statement on a grey, blah, winter’s day.
