It has been so long since I made anything for myself. I realized I haven't really made any scarves I love. So, with the long weekend, I knit my arms off. And I love what came off those needles.

This is the Lion Brand homespun/moonlight mohair spiral scarf. Tip: If you have never worked with more than say 200+ stitches on a circ needle, things can fall off easily. If I made this again I would use longer needles than what the pattern calls for. Oh, and don't try this in the dark, you will drop stitches when you're not supposed to.



And this is my favorite new thing...
It's the ribbon drop stitch scarf from SnBN, but I tweeked it a little. It's with the beautiful Caron Pizazz ribbon yarn #005 Meadow.



The tweeked pattern:
CO 14
knit 2 rows
*k1, yo1, repeat from *
*k1, drop yo off needle, repeat from *
knit 2 rows
*k1, yo2, reapeat from * (just wrap the yarn around the needle twice)
*k1, drop yo2 off needle, repeat from *
knit 2 rows

continue in this pattern until it's as long as you like. End on garter stitch or it will be really hard to get the fringe in. Here's a close up of the stitch pattern:



That's my first time writing out a pattern. Does it make sense?

Everyone go knit your arms off!

Awesome. I love both of them. All knitting for myself is on hold until after the holiday gifts are done.

Would the drop stich scarf pattern work with any odd number cast on, or multiples of 7, or what?  I'm thinking about using the pattern to make a scarf for a friend, but I'd like it a little bit wider...

I love the first one! It's a shame I still have nightmares about Homespun from that poncho I made my little sister (It just won't end! IT JUST WON'T END).

And the yarn on the second one is great! I love using that drop-stitch scarf style for showing off pretty yarns.

I LOVE that green scarf!  I needed you when I still lived in Michigan! There isn't much need for scarves down here, but the colors and the designs on there were fantastic! Smiley

Jenn! Look how tiny I was back then! Wah! Anyway, yes there really isn't a need for scarves down here, but I've still got a ton of the green ribbon yarn left if you want one of these scarves. wink wink.
