Quick Manos scarf November 11, 2005
I needed a quick gift project and was looking for an excuse to use some nice yarn, so this what I came up with. In a moment of weakness while at Article Pract the other day, I bought 2 skeins of Manos del Uruguay. I figured it was acceptable because I need to get started ASAP on my Christmas projects. I decided that it will be a scarf and got started right away. Since two skeins isn’t really that much, the plan was to keep the scarf skinny and long. I found the stitch pattern in the Second Treasury of Knitting Patterns.
Here are the specs:
I cast on 23 stitches on 10 1/2 needles and knit in “mistake rib.”
Right side and Wrong side rows are knit the same:
K2, P2 for the whole row and end K2 P1.
It makes a gentle rib that doesn’t bunch up too tightly. It Is half done already!
Edit: Finished size is 84 inches.
