Knit Scarf


My family in Brazil will be getting knitted scarves for Christmas this year. You've seen previous posts with the ones I have finished. Last weekend I was browsing at Hobby Lobby and found this cool yarn I could not leave at the store. The colors reminded me of the ones my sister loves so I bough it and got ready to knit. My stitch requirements: simple, lots of texture but no pattern which would draw attention away from the colors. 

I opened my copy of The Big Book of Knit Stitches by Martingale and found the Banded Rib. Perfect! I took a picture of it with my phone to keep it as reference so I did not need to carry the book around. But, once the easy pattern was committed to memory, the photograph was deleted.

I love how the scarf is turning out! This Yarn Bee Fair Isle is 80% acrylic and 20% angora. The knit fabric has a soft hand, it is not prickly, and the stitches - not smooth as stockinette - give the scarf a hand knit, rustic look. I hope she likes it!

Now, back to the regularly scheduled quilting duties. Have a fun day!

  3. Many businesses offer custom clothing or uniforms for their employees. Some companies make it optional, while others require that they wear certain items while working, like head coverings.https://bit.ly/2OJfMS5
