You Learn

The Name

You Learn by Alanis Morissette

This was the best song title that I could “link” to this knit project. I chose this song title in relation to the fact that I “learned” something I didn’t know before, and re-learned something I did.

The Scarf

Dimensions: 66 x 4/5 inches

Cast on twelve stitches and work stockinette for three rows, alternated with reverse stockinette. I chose use this pattern from an old one I used before; the difference with this one is that there are no chevrons or zig zags…hmmm! I should be able to make zig zags.

The Yarn

Michaels Loops & Threads Links
Color: 12002 Rich Brown; Content: 74% Acrylic, 18% Wool, 8% Polyester; Weight: 5, Bulky

Unknown Gold
Color: Rumlestiltskin*; Content: Unknown; Weight: Lace*

This is where I “learned” something new. I learned that double-stranding a bulky and a lace, does actually add weight to the yarn – evidenced by the beginning five-inch width and ending with a four-inch width. However, it seemed that the second ball was a bit thinner also.

I re-learned the need to alternate two multicolor yarns of the same color to avoid different pooling patterns.
