More Purple

I finally got around to taking pictures of the fuzzy purple scarf too. I really enjoyed knitting with this Kidsilk Haze.  Such a luxurious treat!

The details:

Yarn:  70% mohair and 30% silk; see above!

Needles: US #9

Pattern:  Invisible Stripe Scarf by lupinbunny

I cast on 25 stitches for a 6″ wide scarf and went until I had 40″ (accessory size).  Using my excellent new digital scale – whee! – I got 11.5 grams for this scarf.  That’s just shy of half a ball, so two friends could split a ball of this fancy yarn.  (By the way, I see Knit Picks has introduced a similar yarn called Aloft.  Will try it sometime!)

This pattern is basically garter stitch (all K stitches) except that every now and then you do a row with 3 wraps for every K stitch.  On the next row, you drop 2 of the wraps and knit a Very Big stitch to get back to your original stitch count.   You can choose however many K rows you want between the fancy rows.   I did the two rows described plus 4 more.  You can do 2 wraps instead of 3.  If you vary the number of wraps, you can get something like this:
