My Red Scarf

Here is my red scarf for the Red Scarf Project 2007. Light is not so good. The pictures with a flash were worse. But, I've been sick and the weather has been overcast... so this is as good as it gets for 'true' reflection of the item.

Pattern: I loosely followed a cable scarf on display at my LYS (one of the employees wrote up a brief pattern for her bulky wool scarf on display - I added a few stitches to make it wider for this project):

Needles: US13 16" circular (just because I like circs! :) You could use a single point US13; 1 - US13 DPN for the cable.

Yarn: Plymouth Yarn Encore Colorspun, Worsted Weight - 75% acrylic/25% wool
Color # 7131, 2 skeins (3.5 oz, 200 yards)

Using two strands of worsted (or 1 strand of bulky wool):

CO 18 stitches

Row 1: K4, P2, K6, P2, K4
Row 2: K6, P6, K6
Repeat for rows 3-10
Row 11: K4, P2, Cable over K6, P2, K4
Row 12: repeat row 2

Repeat rows 1 through 12 until desired length. I ended at row 10 on the last repeat.

Add fringe, if desired.

Hmmm... layout is messing up... edited to see if this line will fix it!

It's sooooo pretty, Kathleen. Red is such a hard color to photograph. Very frustrating!
