Hi! I'm not done!

Long Overdue!

I found this pattern and typed it up -- thank goodness for cut & paste!

The .pdf version is here, complete with photos.

Short Row Scarf or Wrap

Materials:

1 skein Audrey by Schaefer Yarns (or 700 yards light fingering weight 50% silk, 50% merino yarn)

Size 4 needles, straight or circular

 

Finished measurements: It’s really, really long, like 6 feet, and quite wide when unfolded. Unfolded, it’s wide enough for a small wrap. I like it folded in half for a scarf though; the little scallops lay not-in-synch with each other and it’s quite pretty. Play with it to see how it best suits you. I gave it away as a Christmas present; I’ll get the measurements if I ever make it again.

 

 

 

Cast on 60 sts.

Rows 59, 60, & 61: Knit across all 60  sts. (You can make adjustments to the stitch count here if you’re off; I was off by a stitch or two here and there, having forgotten an increase or decrease when whatever was on TV distracted me. It’s a very forgiving pattern!)

 

Continue making segments until you have reached the last segment that you have enough yarn to complete, or end after any segment once the desired length is reached.  Bind off very loosely.

 

Disclaimer: I was halfway through knitting this when I had my stroke. It was going to be for the next Evans cruise (sorry, guys). After I found I could knit again, I dug it out and finished it. I do not know if the pattern I had written before the stroke, and which is written above, really works or not; in reading it through, I *think* it does, it sounds right, and it ought to work, but I don’t really know if it does til I knit it again, or if someone test knits it for me. And I have to wait until I run across it in Audrey before I will knit it again, that’s just the way I am, hehe.

Modular knitting like this is wonderful for knitting with hand-dyed yarn. Every little scallop comes out differently, each one is unique. You can really see how the short rows change the colors. I hope you enjoy knitting this as much as I have! Try different yarns, different weights, see what you come up with. Knitting is always an adventure!

Thank you Beth:-) When I clear the runway I might just give it a try.

Beth, that looks like a fun pattern - thank you. I think when I finish my "Flipside" wrap I'll start this. I have TWO skeins of Audrey in Greenjeans and I'm only using a little bit of the second skein to make it wider. By the time I finish the short wrap scarf the color green will not be in my future.
