Well, here it is!  My very first completed project.  It looks more snake than scarf, but I am going to try blocking it this weekend to see if that will help.  If not.........well I guess I have a lovely wool snake to wear around my neck!  Roll Eyes

This scarf was really easy.  The pattern was given to me by my knitting teacher Kristin Spurkland @ Yarn Garden in Portland, OR.

It was done on US #8 Needles with Lions Brand Worsted Wool in "Woods".  The pattern is as follows:

CO 20.  K3 Rows
*K3, P14, K3
K20
*repeat from here to desired length.  I used the whole skein of yarn.

When you reach the end then
K3 Rows
BO

If I did this again I might do more garter stitch on the outside edges or maybe a knit row every 10 rows to keep it from being so snakey!

Then again, maybe it will be less snakey after blocking.

Be like the trees.  Stay strong in your roots.  Grow upward toward the light.  Offer shade to all.

Lovely! I love that yarn, it looks so rich and wintery! Even if blocking doesn't stop it curling, I think it looks great the way it is - like one of those thin scarves that seem to be everywhere this autumn, here in the land downunder.

I'm envious of you being able to perl, I've tried it a number of times but can't get it right. I think I may be forever doomed to knit only garter stitch!  Wink

you could always try knitting in the round - then you could knit every round, but it still ends up looking like stockinette stitch.  Wink (but i'm confident you will master purls eventually!)
