My holiday knitting frenzy spawned this manly-ish scarf!
I'm a tad bit pleased with myself on how it turned out (which is very unusual...Me? Happy with a project?):
Here's one more....a closer view at the stripe-age:
This was completely simple & was cool to see the stripes stripe in a vertical direction.
I wanted something that looked manly like for my step-pop, thus my color choices.
This is what I did (fyi):Yarn:
Brown Sheeps' 'Lamb's Pride', Worsted. Four skeins in assorted colors.Needles:
11US...circs are best due to the size.The Easy-Breezy Info:
I basically Cast On 200 stitches (fairly relaxed/not tight). Knit every row (garter). I did a random stripe pattern mixing up my four colors, knitting 2 rows 1 color, then knitting 4 rows the next color, 2, 4, 2, 4, etc... I ended up knitting approximately 50 rows, then binding off, which gave me a total width of about 8-1/2", length = approx. 64".
Of course, you can choose ANY color(s), do ANY random stripe pattern you can think of, and make the total width smaller (or larger if you want, but I thought mine turned out to be as wide as I would actually want a scarf to ever be. That's just me), cast on less/more stitches, etc & etc.
It turned out fairly soft, which I adore, as former Lamb's Pride scarves I've knit up seemed a bit stiff.
That's it. I'm done.
