Knitting a scarf: love the colors!

Aren't these colors amazing? The yarn can be a bit tricky to work with, but I am loving its texture. I found a simple pattern at Ravelry as I wanted to draw attention to the colors and not so much the stitching.

Both sides are identical, which is perfect for a scarf. Since all I have to do is "k, YO, k2 tog"  until I reach the desired length, I might even try learning to knit without looking at the needles! My eyes would REALLY appreciate the break.

Here are the specs:

Yarn: Red Heart Boutique Treasure (and I don't usually buy Red Heart, yet but this one is super soft)
Needles: Circular US size 10 (6 mm), 12"
Pattern (free): Drishdi Scarf by Erica Gunn

I could have finished it already but I stopped to knit a teddy bear for my grandson's 1st Birthday. What a disaster that was... but I will write a post with photo once I recover from it! :-)

Do you have a favorite scarf pattern, lace or otherwise? I have another yarn for a scarf for me but haven't decided on the pattern yet. Let me know...

  1. It's beautiful yarn!
    I used to knit while watching TV. The key is feeling the stitches and letting your fingers, not your eyes, do the work!
