FO 2005-19: Multidirectional Scarf OSS*


Yarn: 50gm each, Lana Grossa Meilenweit Multiringel #5040 & Regia 4fädig #1056
Needles: Addi Turbo Circulars #4
Cast-on: 26sts
Pattern: Iris Schreier's MD Scarf pattern from the Multidirectional Knitting Yahoo!Group
Dimensions: 5-1/2" x 57" blocked

The pattern calls for a heavier weight yarn, but after buying the self-striping sock yarn from Jeni, I thought I'd give this pattern a go by alternating the sock yarn with some mostly-black Regia from my stash.

I swatched few times to figure out how to change colors and carry the yarn so the edges and the transitions looked neat. After that it was a quick knit--garter st all the way.

The good news is I still have enough Lana Grossa and black yarn to make 5 more. I'm not sure I'll make 5 more, but it's worth noting. They'd make nice Christmas presents, don't you think?

*OSS: Ilona saw my MD knitting at SnB a couple of weeks ago and said, "What's that, a multidirectional scarf of some sort?" Exactly. Since then, this project was the "Multidirectional Scarf Of Some Sort".

  • Beautiful scarf Janice!
    Could you tell me how you were able to carry the yarns to give such a lovely edge?
    I'm knitting up a scarf with one yarn now but have plans for two colors.
    Always,
    Kitt

  • Thanks Kitt. It's hard to put into words. I think I'll put a separate post together with photos to show how I carried the yarn.

  • Love the scarf. Please please post how you alternated the two different yarns as I've been planning to do the same thing with my MD scarf. Thanks!

  • I've started this zigzag scarf, am stuck on step 3. I've completed the first part of the step, but when I start the second part of step 3, I'm lost. Can you help me?

  • What kind of problems are you having with Step 3? If you're on row 16, I think I interpreted "bind off 2 sts" to mean slip one stitch onto the right needle, passed the first stitch over the stitch you just slipped. You've just decreased 1 st. Then continue with "k12, skp;" etc.. See if that helps
