Every year around September, I get the urge to dust off my knitting needles and knit me some scarves. I'm not much of a pro knitter; my favorite stitch is the moss stitch and that's just knit, purl, knit, purl. Easy! But this fall I'm trying to step up my game a little. I found some lovely scarf/cowl patterns that are more challenging, but still look doable. Want to take a look? Click on the images to go to the patterns!
This lovely cowl actually isn't much of a challenge stitch-wise, but I've never worked with multiple colors! The patterns tells you to 'carry the colors up your work' and I had to Google what that meant. Turns out it means literally that: simply pick up the second strand where you left it the last time and start knitting with it. So simple!
A friend and I already started knitting this one. And yes, it's a challenge....definitely not something to work on after a long day. I'm actually keeping track of the different rows by writing them down, otherwise I'd forget where I am. But it's such a lovely pattern, as you can see below. So far, so good!
I love this pattern! It doesn't seem too difficult, but still lets me try some new things. Including using 12mm needles...wow! I'm planning on using this lovely seafoam green yarn.
I seem to have a thing for white-ish, organic looking scarves these days. This one is knitted with lace-like yarn, so it probably takes a while to finish. It's still on my to do list though, it looks amazing!
