I had big holiday plans to knit hats, scarves, and gloves for eveyone for gifts! Everyone!
I bought yarn, I got patterns. And, so far, I’ve managed to knit precisely one scarf. Heh. I think my dreams were bigger than my reality. And of course in my imaginary reality, I have a lot more time for fun stuff… and far less work and fewer chores.
I grabbed two skeins some bright, spring green yarn, called Nature’s Choice Organic in “Pistachio” by Lion Brand. Please forgive the photos… I couldn’t get the color to read properly. It looks very muddy and olive, but trust me… actually bright spring green. It shows much better on the Lion Brand website.
I looked around for a quick, easy pattern that would still have some interest and settled on this pattern, which was graciously provided free of charge by Yarn Harlot.
The yard I had was kind of nubby and textured, although quite soft, and I tried it out US size 8 needles, which resulted in a pleasant width. I just cast on and knitted according to the pattern until both skeins were used up, which was approximately 200 yards of yarn, I believe.
I debated adding a row or two of crochet to each end, or even some tassles, but in the end liked the scarf just as it was. I hope you can get a feel for the pattern in the photo below:
