Sunbeam Scarf


I finished this garter stitch scarf/shawlette a couple of weeks ago. I'm not crazy for it. But it's OK. Eventhough I rotate wearing my handknit scarves, it's the time of year when I'm soooooo tired of them all! We still have a few more freezing days (and maybe even snow) ahead of us and I welcome wearing something new.

The sun is glorious today and, like a cat, I seek out the sunbeams. But today, I'm sharing a sunbeam with the scarf. I gave it a bath and blocked it very lightly. If I stretch it out too much, it will lose the scrunch and crunch of the garter stitch. (I'm using Knitter's Pride Knit Blockers.)

The yarn is self-striping sock yarn I picked up in the Knitters Review Retreat stash lounge. It might be Kaffe Fassett. The pattern was mindless.  Cast on a bunch of odd stitches (I cast on 11) and then, two in from each end, kfb every row. This makes it crescent-shaped. When it was nearly finished, I increased within the body a few times, so it has a dip and a little ruffle at the end. (I'll take another photo in a day or so.)
