Garter Stitch Scarf, started May 4th, 2007, finished May 7th, 2007
Pattern: Garter stitch!
Yarn: 2 balls of Moda Dea Cache in colourway #2368, “Rendezvous.” The yarn is a bit splitty and slightly rough, but the colours are beautiful and it sparkles! Another bonus is that I got each ball for $2. I’m saving my favourite colourway (#2347, “Wink”) for a garter stitch scarf for myself, and I think I’ll go up a needle size to around 5 to 5.5 mm.
Needles: 4.5 mm circulars
Dimensions: 6in by 5ft
Pattern Notes: It’s garter stitch!
Would I knit it again? Indeed, I would. I didn’t realize that something like garter stitch could be so relaxing at a time when I just wanted to knit and ignore the complications of lace or cables or whatever. I felt like garter stitch was cheating! But it’s not. It’s productive and fun and relaxing! And I love it.
