Here’s a Mistake Rib Scarf I finished last night.
And here’s an accurate depiction of the color:
This is knit from 2 skeins of Classic Elite Indulge. I purchased mine from Little Knits — it is a discontinued yarn and was on sale!
The yarn is 100% cashmere, 55 yards per 50 gram skein. The stated gauge is 2.75 stitches to an inch on U.S. size 13 needles. I started knitting this scarf on size 13 needles but thought it was way too loose. I switched to size 10.5, and am much happier with the results.
Cast on 19 stitches.
Row 1: (k2, p2) to last 3 stitches, k3.
Repeat Row 1 until scarf is desired length. Couldn’t be easier.
My scarf is, after blocking, 47 inches long. All I did to block it was to gently steam-press it.
Have you heard about Sock Madness? It’s a tournament style sock knitting event that will begin in March 2007, but they are seeking sock designs now. If you are a sock designer or a sock designer wanna-be, check out the Sock Madness blog.
Why, yes, I AM lying on hand-knitted socks. What of it?
