Another Scarf and a Scarflette

 Just like his older brothers, Ishmael needed a scarf. I went with the suggested “sparkly green” yarn (which I also used in the mini-gnomey hat).

DSCN4311_medium2After all that plain ol’ knit a row, purl a row I was ready for something a bit more interesting. Maybe something with cables, or a lace pattern. I found the Liza Rose Scarflette pattern, free on Ravelry, a perfect fit for a skein of Malabrigo Rio that I had been debating what to do with.

  The Liza Rose is a surprisingly quick knit. I cast on Saturday night and finished on Sunday. It does involve 2 different lace patterns, 2 different styles of binding off and a picking up stitches on 3 sides. Despite that I still say it’s a quick and easy pattern. Picking up stitches took the most time but picking up stitches has never been a strong suit of mine. Apparently I had been going about it all wrong.

Now, I did take some photos of myself wearing my new scarflette. However, my arm’s length doesn’t capture my face and the whole scarf so I focused on the scarf. Plus, I’m not very photogenic. I have this horrible tendency to wear weird expressions and have my eyes closed.

    • Thanks! We’ve been working on retrofitting the house. One of the things we recently added to the kitchen were some free cabinets since it didn’t have any cabinets. I painted them Behr’s Intoxication with black fixtures. I really like the way they came out.

  1. Gorgeous wool – and very clever knitting. Looking at this sort of thing always gets me enthusiastic about all sorts of knitting projects but must remind myself that my abilities are more suited to knit a row, purl a row!

    • You’d be surprised, this pattern was really easy to follow. I find that if you take it one stitch at a time just about any pattern is doable (unless they’re poorly written). I bet you could do it!

  2. Scarflette looks great! Photos came out real well. I’m sure you are very photogenic! I never take pics of my face either. I wonder why we are so critical of stuff like that? Happy Knitting!
