I started two Danica scarves, one with the SWS yarn, the other with some Bernat camouflage I had in my stash. That pattern requires increasing on the purl side (p f/b) which is easier if you know how to knit backwards. I then found another pattern which shows increasing on the knit side, so I started another scarf using the Bernat pink camo, and I think I like the knit increase better over the purl increase.
Pattern no 3: Knit increase, but instead of the p2tog for the purl decrease, it says to spp. I prefer p2tog, so I have now modified the 3rd pattern using p2tog on the purl decreases. Knit decreases will be ssk instead of skp (it produces the same effect).
In other words, pattern #2 is more or less what I’m using. But I like the way the 3rd pattern has you do the triangles on the end.
Here are the links to the 3 patterns. I’ll let you be the judge:
So now I’ve started a shawl with a combination of #2 & #3 using Bernat Satin Sport in the Meadow colorway.
