It's official! Let's all knit a scarf together!

Below is the modified My So Called Scarf pattern (watch video)

I like the modified first row proposed by Ingrid, also demonstrated in the video, but feel free to use the original pattern linked above.

Don't be afraid to get creative and try a different yarn or gauge!

•US 11 Needles
•Darning Needle

•psso-pass slipped stitch over
•P2tog-purl 2 together


•CO 30 stitches

•Row 1: K1 *sl1, K1, yo, psso two stitches on right needle* K1.

•Row 2: *P2tog, do not slip stitches off the needle, purl the first stitch again, slip both stitches off needle*

•Repeat rows 1 and 2 until you run out of yarn.
•Weave in all ends.

i got really confused just by reading the pattern (mainly because i'm working a beanie in the round...and this plied/braided/chained/multiple-strings-somehow-woven-to-make-yarn yarn is such a pain in the ass)...but i'm not working the it might be really easy.

however, it looks as if you could just twist your knit stitches and achieve the same effect. i may try it.

i'll get my aunt to do *that* pattern while i work my twisted stitches and see the end result.

Well the more I look at the scarf the more I want to make my own...even though I vowed to never make another scarf since I have way too many... But I think it will be a good project to use some of my stash...just trying to find the right combo before I CO....

With a sigh and a smile...
Having stumbled upon two skeins of Manos del Uruguay (in a suitably dour gray colorway) in the archive of his formidable stash, the Pilgrim grudgingly joins in the fun. Grudgingly because, well, he has at least four other projects in varying stages of progress already...more information of which can be found by visiting his online home:

i started one a couple weeks

i started one a couple weeks ago in Noro Silk Garden. (talk about a pain to frog. Will be restarting again. (but I think with something smoother I have some artyarns product in my stash. Just FYI the slip is as if to purl with yarn in back. I know its standard (now) But in case any of the new knitters get confused when it's not written out. I did a few rows with slip as if to knit, didn't see much difference, except I think the twist made it tighter, and tougher to do the purl side.

I'm in too! Not sure if I'll use the Manos or substitute something else. I may use up some Plymouth Boku that I have in my stash.

Sure, it sounds like fun, I'll join in. I'll probably be a bit on the slow side, though... it will take close to two weeks for me to get any yarn in, and even then I might not be able to start right away. Ah well, I don't think that speed is the important thing here anyway....
