My current work in progress:

Seaforth designed by Alice Starmore, knit in British Breeds 5-ply Guernsey Wool on US 3 needles.


Double the Fun

I have finished my giant rainbow-colored lasagne noodle.

Please note that moments before I snapped this photo, Miss Lucy was stretched out on the scarf. She got bored and wandered off so I took the opportunity to get a cat-free shot. Or two.

I knit this from one 130-gram skein of Kauni Effektgarn in the EQ colorway, using a U.S. size 3 (3.25mm) needle. This is how much yarn I had left over:

I love being able to use almost every last bit of a skein of yarn.

The pattern for this scarf, “Double FunScarf,”  is now available for sale in my Ravelry store, and for the remainder of the month of April, you can purchase it for the low low price of $2.00. On May 1 I will hike the pattern price to $3.50.

This scarf is quite easy to knit in garter stitch with short-row ruffles on both sides. While mine was knit with fingering weight wool, you could use any weight up to a light DK weight. (Anything heavier will give you very stiff ruffles!)

Knit as written and lightly steam blocked, this garter stitch scarf measures 8” across and 70” long, but you can make it any width and length you like. The pattern explains how to modify the size. And you can knit the scarf to use up your entire skein of yarn — just knit until you run out.

Fold it in half lengthwise before wrapping around your neck.

Or not.

You can roll it up in a ball and just look at it.

My new work in progress is not knit from Kauni yarn and is not ruffled. Are you shocked?

Lucy is too busy trying to order catnip online to give it a thought.

    Wendy, it’s wonderful and fun and I just purchased the pattern.

    The yarn really makes it, but I could think of using something soft (cashmere?) and, rather than doubling it (and the cost), narrowing it.

    Thanks again for sharing your work with us.


  15. Oh thank you thank you thank you for making the pattern available! Rushing to purchase right now. I am ditching the cast on Swiss Cheese for the Lasagna Noodle!

  16. The double fun scarf, what a cute name!

  17. I could not resist and bought the pattern last night. I have one LYS that carries the Kauni, so I will be visiting it later today.

    It is “double fun”, but it will always be the rainbow lasagne noodle in my heart 😉 …

  18. Didn’t get a chance to comment the other day, but I love this scarf! The only problem with it is that every time I see it, I crave Italian food. 🙂 So, uh, how nervous were you about running out of yarn? LOL Ok, I’m off to buy the pattern – thanks for putting it on sale!
