Here is my current submission for the Red Scarf Project. I have another on the needles. Along with about 7 other projects on other needles.
I have finally written up my two favorite simple scarf stitch patterns to encourage others to participate. I heart Cartridge Belt Rib for its purl-free ribbing. It goes very quickly, and it’s very easy to spot and correct mistakes.
Brioche Rib is my other scarf standby. It has a lovely rhythm, but it is not so easy to correct mistakes. No dropping down the troublemaker a few rows and whipping it back into shape. You have to rip back to find the offender and fix it. I believe it is worth it, however. Just remember to check your work every few rows.
Really cool? I went into teach the other night and there were TWO donations for the project. They were donated anonymously, so if you left these at the Yarnery in St. Paul, let me know!
I thought I’d get the post-it note, too. Guess not.
So, get hip, get red, get over to Now Norma Knits.
