So now I can check out my bags of socks to be, and knit me a pair of socks!
Until I do, this will work—a miscelanious ball of yarn—not enough to do anything with, really, is becoming a narrow lacy scarf—I sometimes use small scarves like this one will be-- to dress up visors—a fillip* of sorts. (I wear visors all summer!) I have a few—and the small scarf works to hide damp or less than neat hair (as when I come out of the pool with wet hair!)
(*see the 3rd meaning)
The lace pattern is pretty enough—and simple enough too, but not for the faint hearted--
R1—a bunch of P4 togethers (enough to scare away many)
R2—Increases to make up for decreases in the previous row
Its a triple welt—too. A simple welt is a garter ridge, a double welt is Knit 1 row, Purl 1 row, knit 1 row, , then Purl 1 row, knit 1 row, Purl 1 row.. (or 3 rows of stocking knit, 3 rows of reverse stocking knit)
The combination of all the decreases in one row and all the increases in the next creates a wavy selvage, the trile welts makes the scarf wavy all along the fabric.
I like this pattern—and I will keep it in mind for other things.
Thats it—there is no more!
