Making the scarf has kinda set back one of my other projects though. Not that it's going all that quickly anyway. I'm working on a top-down sweater top, which I'm really hoping will turn out as awesome as it is in my head. I've only done two top-downs so far, my Margaret top and a purple one. The purple one is almost interesting, but definitely good for a first go. This new one goes in a different direction though. It's still in the raglan style but it has more of a ballet neck to it and will be shaped more like a dolman top with more defined sleeves and a cinched waist. Should be pretty if all my math worked out. It's taking a while to do, though, even with my Addi's (I got clicks for Christmas, squee!). I got to put the sleeves on holders today. Anywho, today is my birthday and TCM ever so kindly decided to play Gaslight for me so I'm going to leave you with pictures and the pattern and call it good. (-:
Laurels Mini Scarf
About 90 yards of I Love This Yarn
The final stitch in each row is made in the turning chain of the previous row. Each row increases by two sts, one on the end and one in the center.
Row 1: 2sc in 2nd ch from hook, ch1, turn.
Row 2: Sc, 2sc, sc, ch 1, turn.
Row 3: Sc twice, 2 sc, sc twice, ch 1, turn.
Row 4: Sc three times, 2 sc, sc three times, ch1.
Row 5: 2 sc in last sc of previous row, ch 1.
Repeat rows 2-5 until scarf measures 60 inches. End on a row 4, break off.
Below you see a step by step of rows 5, 2, 3, and 4 in that order. I've included this largely because of how row 3 looks. It will appear that the leaf is going to face the wrong direction but, as you can see, once you go on to row 4 the leaf looks the way it's supposed to.
