I knit my mom this hat for Christmas, and decided to modify the pattern to make her a matching scarf. I basically shortened it (co 36sts instead of 108).
To start the scarf, I used the hat edging pattern:
[B]Row 1: knit across
Row 2: knit across
Row 3: knit across
Row 4: purl across
Row 5: *K2tog, 3 times, (yo, k1) 6 times, k2tog 3 times; rep from * to end
Row 6: knit
Rows7-10: repeat rows 3-6
Row 11: *k4, k2tog, rep from * to end[/B]
You can see in the hat photo, this gave me a wavy edge with some lacy holes.
For the main part of the scarf I just used the repeat pattern from the bottom half of the hat:
[B]Row 12: purl across
Row 13: knit across
Row 14: knit across
Row 15: knit across
Repeat rows 12-15[/B]
Now I’m getting close to the other end of the scarf, and I realize that I can’t just follow the first end pattern backwards… I need to increase where I decreased, but I can’t figure out what sort of increases to use to achieve the same pattern I got on the first end.
Can anyone help so I can give my mom a finished scarf? LOL Thank you, and Merry Christmas!
