My current obsession is knitting scarves and hats… in between stamping and scrap-booking and baking and blogging and… okay, so I am kind of scatterbrained with my obsessions!
At any rate, I have found so many wonderful patterns online and on blogs like mine (yeah, they were probably WAY more organized) and I thought it would be nice to return the favor of a free pattern…. good knitting karma!
Mom and I have really been enjoying playing with this pattern lately. We’ve warped it quite a bit from the original which is what I’m sharing here. The original pattern Potato Chip Scarf from KnitPicks was great, but I didn’t like having to use the big needles and the length was crazy! It was twelve feet!
The great thing about most scarves is that you don’t have to be too fussy about gauge and using just the right needle size… scarves are forgiving!
I was in the mood to knit and I just grabbed some pretty colors that I had left over from other projects. Two of the pinks are Caron Simply Soft and the red was WoolEase. (Boo is modeling my scarf… and not happy about it at all!)
Mom and I have added a couple of extra rows to the original pattern since we prefer to use the smaller needles.
Mom has been making theses in bright colors from Caron Simply Soft and I have plans for a red and white ruffle made from some Simply Soft and a sparkly white yarn I found in the bottom of my knitting basket.
