One of my regular customers – Jo – is making a scarf for her son, using double-stranded Madelinetosh Vintage in an oyster color and it is looking beautiful. I inquired about the stitch she is using and she freely shared that it is a farrow rib stitch. While we were discussing it at “The Tree,” someone else offered that alternating two rows of one color and two rows of a second color provides a hound’s tooth pattern, which I love. I don’t know about the hound’s tooth pattern; it only appears at certain angles. I do however love the stitch pattern, front and back.
So the next at-home project will be this scarf – Always The Sun by The Stranglers – which will be constant yellow and changing shades of alternate colors. Right now I am starting with my orange scraps, which will change to maroon later, and then possibly blue, though I am not sure yet.
So far, yarn consumption includes:
- Universal Uptown Worsted (Fiber Content: 100% Acrylic, Yarn Color: 327 Bright Yellow; Yarn Weight: 4, Worsted) from my Bacon & Eggs Scarf
- Unknown Scrap from Irma
- Universal Uptown Worsted (Fiber Content: 100% Acrylic; Yarn Color: 306 Pumpkin; Yarn Weight: 4, Worsted) from the Instant Karma Dog Sweater
The final post regarding this scarf will provide a list of all yarns used.
