It's been quite a fall/early winter and I haven't been on much. At the end of September, I moved back to the US after 14 years in Turkey. I have been knitting here and there though,and as life settles down, I've slowly been getting back into old habits. :) Also enjoying some new ones!
My cousin loves the scarf called "The Corrugator," and has knitted many of them for friends. I like it too, but always thought it would look nice striped, so I adapted it a bit. It's completely reversible and basically a garter stitch.
The regular pattern calls for:
RS: *sl k k k* ending with a knit
WS: sl k *sl k k k*
Note - the slip stitches are done with the yarn IN THE FRONT.
To add a second yarn and have a nice edge, I did:
RS: k k k k (with new color) *sl k k k* ending with a knit
WS: sl k *sl k k k* ending with a slipped stitch.
When you bring up the alternate yarn from below, you can put it in front of or behind the yarn you just knit; both will give you a nice edge, just be sure to stay consistent!
Here I used a thick Lamb's Pride for the black, and a Malabrigo (or was it Manos...can't remember) for the colored stripe.
Wishing everyone a happy 2015!
