After many unsuccessful tries yesterday, I found a stitch pattern I love. I tried variations of feather and fan, I tried stitch patterns that make waves longways, and I considered trying a modular knitting approach.
Finally, I came across the Corona Pattern Stitch from the Reader’s Digest Ultimate Sourcebook of Knitting and Crochet Stitches.
The thing I love about this yarn is how it looks almost unspun. The stitches that dip down into the eyelets several rows below really show off that detail. Wanna see? Here’s a closeup. It’s a really easy pattern to memorize because you can figure out what your next row should be just by looking at the row below.
I bought 3 hanks of this yarn (600 yards) and I think that will be way too much for this scarf. Heck, Clapotis only takes 600 yards! Even if I don’t use it all up, this yarn is such a pleasure to work with that I’m sure I can find a second use for it.
