I love, love, love this scarf! It’s the first time I’ve ever knit with Malabrigo Worsted, and it was simply divine!
This is Silver's pattern, which you can find [[COLOR=Purple][B]here[/B][/COLOR]](http://www.cometosilver.com/patterns/palindrome.htm). The pattern is SUPER-EASY! It took me one week to complete. I started it last Sunday while we were on a college recruiting visit for my daughter. We sat to watch the women's soccer team at [Florida Gulf Coast University](http://www.fgcu.edu/), and I started what I hoped would be a project that would require little thinking (compared to another project I'm in the middle of). It did not disappoint!
It would be the perfect pattern to start on if you want to learn how to do cables.
The scarf wound up being almost 63” long and 4” wide. I used size 9 needles and completed 55 pattern repeats. I used 1.7 skeins of yarn and have approximately one ounce left, which I hope to use to make the 75 Yard Malabrigo Fingerless Mitts.
For the bind-off, I tried something new.
The Fall 2008 Interweave Knits has an article that includes instructions for how to knit an invisible bind-off for ribbing. I used these instructions, finally understanding them after trying several times, and wound up with a clean edge. [B]Here[/B] is a link for a p1, k1 bind off, which will give you a general idea of the concept.
On to the pictures!
I bought the yarn at Knitwitz, a store in Jacksonville. It is Malabrigo Worsted, and the color is Water Green. It reminds me of my first prom dress.
Thanks for looking!
