Soft Scarf

Finished another project! This is a scarf for Jason's mom -- it's made from Lion Brand Homespun Yarn, and the color is Mediterranean -- it's really very soft. I used #11 needles.

In the end, I ended up doing a really simple scarf: I cast on 30 stitches and then knit like a fiend. No purling, no fancy pattern, nothing -- just k30 all the way.

Originally, I cast on 35 stitches and was alternating rows of knitting with rows of purling. But the end of the scarf was rolling badly and the size of the needles combined with the slipperiness of the yarn made purling a little bit of a pain. Plus, the scarf was too wide and I was running out of yarn too fast. So I pulled it all out and started again. It turned out to be a good decision -- I had enough yarn (I bought two skeins, and I have some leftover) and it was much easier.

Did I mention the softness? I have a skein in browns that I bought to make a hat for myself -- I can't wait! Any pattern suggestions for an adult hat made from bulky yarn?

There's a bulky hat pattern up on Bonne Marie's site ( I think!
