Mistake Rib Infinity Scarf

What are you most proud of? I am most proud that I had the courage to plot out the pattern (even though it's SUPER EASY) and knit it. And I'm super proud with the results. I just jotted down the instructions and didn't do a gauge swatch...I want to make another and this time will rework pattern to include gauge and a different closing technique. Shucks, I'm feeling so good about it, I might even just try to write a pattern for in the round! Wouldn't that be something?!! Now that I've done something so simple, it gives me the strength and courage to tackle more intricate pattern work. What advice would you give someone starting this project? If I were to knit this again, I'd find a different way to graft the ends as I knitted it on straight needles. I used the Kitchener stitch, but because the pattern is a K2, P2, ending with a K2, P1 (multiple of 4 +3)...it was difficult for me to get a clean finish once I grafted. I think perhaps a crochet close or next time just knit in the round!

You Can Make This

TaraB made Mistake Rib Infinity Scarf with:

Plug and Play: Custom Scarves & Shawls

with Amy Singer

  • I used Red Heart yarn in Buff
  • approximately 12oz
  • and a provisional cast on. I don't see a need right now to use more expensive quality yarns as I'm still learning

Okay...so I've been on the fence waffling for MONTHS now about starting a blog...my confidence is not as it should be...and I registered for the blog LAST YEAR...but after you ladies asked to see the pattern, I decided to go ahead and do it...you can find the pattern link here: https://knakedkneedles.wordpress.com/2015/01/19/6/ It's the only post on my blog, but I guess we all have to start somewhere...LOL Please let me know how it works for you and I'd love to see your scarves when you complete them!
