Super Simple Superwash Scarf
I had found a pattern on Ravelry a while back that I really wanted to try. It calls for bulky yarn and knits up quickly. I looked through my stash but didn't have any colors I was very happy with, so instead I went shopping. I decided on Yarn Bee's First Love in the Lovely colorway. Turquoise and dark purples and a little bit of green, with splashes of fuchsia thrown in. Perfect for this kind of scarf.
Super Simple Superwash Scarf, but it's knit in the round and intended to be a cowl. The one I knit L can be wrapped twice around your neck, being stylish but warm. This cowl is made up of 3 knit rows, then 3 purl rows, and so on. I ran out of yarn befor the pattern really ended. I needed 7 repeats but only got 5, although I don't think it detracts from the look.
On a side note, now that I've had a bit of a breather since Lovebug's birth and now that we're getting back into a routine...I'm going to try and get back to some weekly posts like WIP Wednesdays and Friday Favorites. I've had a ton of Finished objects to share recently but that will start to slow down very soon. So stay tuned!
