Every year there is the one UFG.
From what I understand it is a common occurrence among knitters.
This year several hats and 2 scarves were wrapped. But one of the scarves was still on the needles!
Two days later – finished, blocked and ready to make the trip to the snow country come the end of Winter Break.
I modified the pattern by using a “Resting Row” – Purl Every Stitch on the wrong side. Doing so requires the pattern only be counted on the right side rows – allowing the brain to “rest” on wrong wide rows!
Two skeins (288 yards each) of Vintage DK by Berroco were knit on size 7 needles.
The heathered teal/grey yarn is a machine washable blend of acrylic, wool, and nylon. It knit easily, but did not block as well as the cashmere blend. The lace pattern quickly returned to its pre-blocking distortion once dry.
However, machine washable yarn was a must for scarves headed to a college campus!
One stripe of the Striped Destashification Slouch Hat was knit with this scarf yarn so they can be worn together.
