Scarf Sunday


It’s funny how much pleasure I can get out of a little scarf. I’m so happy with how this turned out.
Pattern Mistake Rib: CO 23. Every Row: *K2 P2* to last 3 sts, K2 P1. Slip first stitch of each row knitwise.
Yarn Knit Picks Decadence 100% Superfine Alpaca in Winter Berry. 2 full hanks (242 yards) for scarf and approx 30 yards for fringe.
Needles US 10. I started with my Boyes because I love knitting narrow items on my straights. But, the point of the needle combined with the loose spin of the yarn caused extra splitting. I switched out to Addi circs and it was better. Even still, the US 10s killed my hands and I took several days off before knitting the last portion of this scarf.
Size 71 inches long without fringe and 6 inches wide. In my opinion this is a perfect length for a scarf. It’s longer than I usually do and I love it. The width will probably decrease 1-1.5 inches with wear if it’s anything like my mistake rib scarf.
I’m tempted to order some of the yarn for a scarf for me. It’s really soft and warm, but my hands will not be happy with those US 10s and I don’t think I’d like the yarn knitted any tighter. The scarf has great drape and I wouldn’t want to lose that.
I’ll hold off for now, but I have to place a knitpicks order later today and I’m not sure I’ll be able to hold out!

  1. That’s a wonderful picture and a fantastic scarf. I love the color of the flowers with the color of the scarf. I love the fringe, too. Great scarf!

  2. Lovely scarf! I was just about to order some yarn for Christmas scarves and had passed on Decadence since it seemed really bulky, but that scarf may have turned my head a bit.

  3. I love it, the fringe is a prefect addition. I usually don’t like fringe on scarf but it looks perfect on this one. Hmmm, maybe I need not be afraid of fringe.

  4. What a fabulous scarf! The fringe is perfect – how did you get it to be so perfect? My fringe never comes out like that –

  5. The scarf looks fantastic. I wasn’t going to do fringe on mine, but now I am reconsidering because yours looks so great! Thanks for the inspiration!

  6. Beautiful!
    I’m knitting a mistake rib scarf right now, but I’m not slipping the first stitch of each row. What’s the difference?
