I love scarves. I especially love the easiest of easy scarf – the drop stitch. It's one of those fun scarves you knit and just when you think you're making a mistake you're not, it's all part of the plan.
I made one back in 2009 after being inspired by a sample at the yarn shop in Philadelphia, Loop. The scarf above was actually started about a year ago but it was put in the WIP pile while I went on to other knitting. I just happened to pull it out during a bit of a stash inventory I did last week. (Alert: stash sale is a-coming!)
If you want to make one similar
Yarn: Rowan Bamboo Tape (now discontinued) 3 balls
Needles: US 10
CO 28 stitches
Knit 6 rows.
Next Row: K1, Dbl YO, repeat to last st, K1.
Next Row: *Knit 1, Drop YOs* to last stitch, K1
Repeat from start all the way through to desired length!
I love the drape of the bamboo tape in this type of scarf. It's too bad Rowan discontinued this yarn.
Speaking of pie, have I told you all about the BEST pie place that's literally steps from my apartment? Just when I was thinking by moving to California I would become all healthy and organic, I come across Chili Pies (& Ice Cream). I am weak for the Mexican Chocolate Pecan pie a la mode.
