Mistake Rib Scarf

I don’t know who “invented” the Mistake Rib pattern stitch so I can’t give that person proper credit. It is a stitch pattern that I recently discovered and being a new knitter, one that I appreciated. It looks great, and it is easy. It gets its name because the ribs are offset which really gives it an interesting look. If you are looking for a great take along project, then this mistake rib scarf is just the ticket!
You simply knit two and purl two across and end each row with one purl
You can use any size needles and any type of yarn, great for stash busting.
The pattern stitch consists of multiples of 4 + 3.
To make my scarf I used one hank of Malabrigo, Worsted. I purchased this beautiful yarn from one of my favorite yarns shops, Heindselman’s Yarn and Needlework. They say they are the oldest yarn shop in America, which is reason enough to visit the store. They are located at 176 West Center Street, Provo, Ut 84601
The finished size of my scarf is approximately 5 X 50 Inches.
The color way is #246 Hummingbird. 210 yards, 100 grams

Size 13 needles

CO 27 stitches

Row 1: *K2, P2, repeat from * across, end with K2, P1.
Repeat row 1 to desired length.

Filet Scarf

The other day I picked up the Knit N Style Magazine, December 2012 issue. I came across a filet scarf in crochet by Helene Rush. I loved it and decided to crochet it. I promised a cousin of mine that I would make her a scarf.

I thought I could make the scarf from stash yarn, but alas, I have hundreds of skeins but none seemed to look as good as what was in the magazine. So I got on the phone and called my local yarn shop, which is Personal Threads in Omaha Nebraska.  They quickly sent out the yarn, two skeins of Knit One, Crochet Too Ty-Dy Wool, one Chili Mocha and one Antique Garden.

The scarf made up very quickly, and I'm excited to get it mailed to my cousin. I hope she likes it.

Lace With a Twist Cowl

Like so many of you I have been busy working on Christmas gifts. A few finished objects got into the mail before I could take pictures to share.

I'm pretty proud of this knitted project that I just finished for my sister for Christmas, and thought I'd share it quick before it gets wrapped up and delivered.

The pattern is called Lace With a Twist Cowl. The designer is Lisa Gentry. I found the pattern in a Leisure Arts Booklet that I purchased from Hobby Lobby for $9.95 this fall. The Booklet features  ten different cowls designed by Lisa.

The cowls are all  fun, and I hope to knit several more, but this one is my favorite. It is made with yarn from Red Heart's Midnight Boutique line. Two skeins of yarn were used and size 10 needles.

I hope you like it.
