This was a Christmas present that I started last year. The ribbing was so tedious that I never got it completed. I picked it up again, decided to make it a shorter keyhole scarf, and got it done in time for Christmas this year. What a relief!





The yarn is Karabella Aurora 8, which is expensive but so worth it.

No, it's just 2x2 ribbing (I forget how many stitches wide), and for the keyhole I followed the technique for the Windy City Scarf in Stitch 'n Bitch. When you get to the length where you want the hole to start, knit half a row and then start a new ball and use that yarn for the rest of the row. Continue using the new ball for one side of the scarf and the old ball for the other, until the hole is long enough, and then knit across with the old ball and continue on. I hope that makes sense. The book explains it a lot better, I'm sure.

That is gorgeous. I'm in the middle of a keyhole scarf as well, and I was trying to figure out the best way to do the hole. Thanks so much for the tip.
