For the past few weeks I’ve been looking for a project to get me excited. All this stockinette has led to me all but avoiding knitting! Well we can’t have that, right?

lace *sigh*

It’s Susan’s Branching Out from the latest Knitty.
I’m using Artyarns Supermerino in color 110 on a US 7. The colors look pretty true on my monitor. I tried out this yarn before Christmas for a pair of socks for my Mom but I just couldn’t get the yarn to look right for socks. They never seemed correctly sized — either a bit big and droopy or too tight and stretched out — so I frogged the sock and the yarn has been in my stash ever since.
I modified the pattern slightly. I started out with just 2 rows of garter and I eliminated the garter edge going up the sides. I was hoping the edges would scallop and they are! It’s about 6 inches wide. I have 230 yards of the yarn and I’m planning to just knit until I run out.

  1. looks fantastic. great yarn. i have some leftover clapotis supermerino and may have to try that one day. cool last two lines.

  2. That looks really great — I love the modifications you’ve made from the original pattern, and if I may say think it looks better than the original!

  3. I’m with Pioggia, still trying to decide. Goodness knows there isn’t a shortage of amazing patterns right now. I think your adaptation of Branching Out is going to be so elegant. How are the his/hers sweaters coming? Too much stockinette, eh? :) Can’t wait to see them.

  4. Nice. And I love the modifications. I think the scallped edging will make it a more visually striking scarf. Though I don’t envy the amount of time and pins it will take to block it!

  5. Absolutely breathtakingly beauteous!! I had already decided I was going to knit that scarf, however, after seeing yours….it’s urgent!!!!!

  6. Hey!
    First off your blog is great. I just started working for artyarns and I
    am creating a new section on their website (www.artyarns.com). This section
    is going to include reviews and pictures of what people think and do with
    artyarn’s yarns. I was wondering if I could use all your wonderfully knited
    branching out scarf! (of cousre we would link your blog) It would be an honor
    to have your blog and knitting on our website. Thanks!
