Block Scarf Complete


Last fall my husband requested a thin purple scarf while we were exploring a fiber festival.  You know me, I was thrilled to have a quest and a project to plan.  I found some lace weight yarn (jaggerspun) and already knew I would create a simple block pattern, alternating purls and knits.

While knitting with two strands held together on size three needles, I found the project "rustic".  I kept hoping that blocking would soften the fabric and make the stitches even.  Well my oh my!!  The blocking did wonders!

Doesn't it always??


I love the way the stitches pop and how the scarf turned out exactly as I imagined.  Ravelry notes are here.

  3. Knitting your husband a scarf with laceweight (even doubled) on size three needles is a true labor of love, and it turned out great! It is always wonderful for knitters to receive special requests from loved ones.

  7. It turned out beautifully! I have to say that I avoid lace-weight yarn, but maybe it wouldn't be so bad held double.

  11. Doubling up the yarn! Brilliant. I may have to do that with some black lace weight that is intimidating me

  13. Thank you, thank you, thank you! Your (husband's) scarf is beautiful & it's given me an idea of what to do with a pile of clown barf lace weight yarn I have. And FYI, my Pebble Beach is done & soaking. Can't wait to see how the magic of blocking works on it.

  14. This looks so cozy. I think it's so cute how your husband requested this scarf and picked out the yarn himself. I love how he isn't afraid of color. My husband is your typical blue, black, grey, and green.
