My first finish

The scarf that I started back in March is finally complete. It's been slow going, but that's one of the reasons I'm a fan of knitting. I do a little whenever I can, and make progress here and there when things are quiet.

I blocked it at the end of last week, which perfected the shape. While it is too warm for a scarf now, I'll look forward to wrapping up with it in the Fall.

The Pattern:
Row 1: knit
Row 2: knit
Row 3: knit
Row 4: knit
Row 5: knit
Row 6: knit front and back of each stitch
Row 7: purl
Row 8: knit
Row 9: purl
Row 10: knit
Row 11: purl
Row 12: knit two together

I used one skein of worsted weight malabrigo merino wool.


  1. So very feminine...I love it! Next stop, your own Etsy shop? :-) I bet you could have a lot of fun experimenting with patterns and lengths. My sister has been knitting one for Lillian and I can't wait to see it! You both are so creative :-) I may have to commission one for myself..maybe I could trade for a crosstitch of a colorful predator for Roscoe ;-) heehee. I've though of finding cool crosstitch patterns and once I'm done picking coordinating fabric to surround it for a pillow...something like a floral or foilage crosstitch print surrounded by crushed velvet or dupioni silk and cool piping/ trims. I will let you know if that ever happens!!!

    1. Thanks Heidi! I think you will be more excited about my next project: felted pot holders!!!!! Same yarn, different colors...i'm pumped. Your idea for pillow covers sounds really fun. We should start a crafting circle ;) J and E can join in on the fun, too.

      PS. Roscoe would love a crosstitched leopard :).

  2. I love it! I want to make one, how many did you cast on?

    1. I think it was 24, based on how tightly I knit and with intent to knit a scarf 6 inches wide. It ended up being about 10 inches wide at the final section (I guess I'm not terribly consistent) but blocking helped even things out!

  3. Jacqueline, You are can do anything!Love, Mom...:)
