It's 100 degrees outside, but I don't care - I'm Scarfing it up! Please ignore the rather haggard face; it's been a long day... This scarf was knit on size 19 needles lengthwise. I cast on 80 stitches or so. I used three yarns: a chunky Lion Brand, a fuzzy GGH Fee with gold slubs, and India ribbon yarn. Here's a close-up of the blue scarf I showed in my last post. Marlo asked in my comments for the pattern. It is knitted lengthwise with a rayon chenille and a ladder novelty yarn, using the knit stitch and the knit drop stitch. I knit this scarf on size 9 circulars, casting on 70 stitches. It's a bit short, but since I'm making these to sell, someone may like a shorter accessory scarf. I made up the pattern and am making another one (longer this time) so I can write up the pattern. And here is the lovely Ally presenting another lengthwise scarf. This one was knit on 9's again with Berrocco Furz and Trendsetter Dune. I cast on about 125 stitches and knit two rows with Furz. I then attached the Dune and knitted two rows. I alternated both yarns every two rows until it was as wide as I wanted, ending with the Furz yarn. Then I fringed. Charr wanted to see a pic of the Color-crap stole. Well, here it is. I'll finish up the fringe and put it up for sale.
