We have a finished scarf! The scarf is about 66 inches long. I wasn’t really sure how long it should be. I didn’t want it to be too long & I didn’t want it to be too short. So I kinda decided 66 inches would be a good length.
Just to recap, this is the Dapperly Dashing Scarf & Hat pattern by Stormy Tetreault. I loved the pattern it was simple & fun & the pattern looks great! It’s not a simple rib or exciting cables, but the pattern keeps the hat & the scarf interesting.
I do have to say when I started knitting the scarf I was stumped by the “wool forward” stitch. I searched You Tube & found a couple of instruction videos, I watched them, watched them again….and I said to myself, hmmmmm that looks a lot like a yarn over. But I still wasn’t sure that I was understanding the stitch correctly. So I googled again & read a few posts about the difference between wool forward & yarn over, which to me seemed very similar. I decided that I would just go ahead start the pattern & see what happens. So, when I got to the last 3 stitches I moved the yarn to the front & slipped the last 3 stitches. It made a very nice edge. I really liked the way it came out.
I love the set & I hope the recipient loves it as much as I enjoyed knitting it.
And here I am trying it on 🙂 LOL
We have a sock! LOL 1 sock done! And the great part about it is that it fit! It may actually be a smidge big, but since they are house socks that’s ok! And he loves it! I have cast on & started sock 2 so hopefully that will be done in the next week or so!
I hope to finish comfy sock II within the next week and then I hope to finish my afghan. But I am wanting to get started on another pair of socks & perhaps another hat & scarf set… LOL
