Well, it’s finished! I asked your advice about this the other day and now she’s done!
This is a scallop stitch taken from volume 1 of the Vogue Stichionary. It was a quick 14 row repeat, really easy to memorize. I just did one repeat across so it’s 24 stitches.
I did 13 repeats on one side, then did the same for the second side and grafted the two pieces together so that both ends have the nice curve.
Here’s a closeup of where I grafted the pieces together. Grafting is teh r0x0r!!!11!one!!1
This is for a cousin’s 16th birthday tomorrow. She requested a scarf in brown and white and lacy but “not all holey.” (What does she think lace is? :teehee: ).
I’m pretty happy with it. It makes an interesting style piece…I think it would look better in a solid color, but the varigated was requested. It reminds me of a Hoodsie Cup (yum!).
The yarn, by the way, is original gangsta Red Heart and it’s HEINOUS! Ugh…but it was super cheap and the only thing in the right color scheme. I didn’t wanna spend too much figuring this will be “cool” for about 10 seconds until she completely changes her wardrobe (again!). In an attempt to ward off the scratchiness I soaked this in hot water with a LOT of fabric softener. It seems to have softened it up marginally, I may do a second round once it’s dry. I welcome other suggestions!
