Stashers the world over purchase beautiful yarn and fabric knowing that someday that “perfect” design will come along.

Destashification requires that the elusive someday is now.

Five 100 yard skeins of this beautiful, soft  – almost cuddly, mostly cashmere yarn was waiting patiently in The Stash.  Inspiration hit in the form of the Easy As Pie Scarf Pattern by Megan Delome.  (Ravelry Link).

Right and Wrong Sides

The pattern is designed for lace weight yarn on size 2 needles – obviously written for those that can claim patience as a personality trait.

Size 7 needles worked well with this yarn (and this knitter!)

I did make one revision to the pattern.  Each wrong side row was revised to “purl all stitches”.

I find doing so eliminates some of the distortion of the first cable stitch.

After blocking the scarf is over 6 feet long and approximately 11″ wide.

Perfect Destashification Christmas Gift!
