Little scarf

Today while rummaging through my stash, I came across a 75% completed child’s scarf. I think it’s moochi yarn but can’t be sure 🙂 so I spent about 45 minutes and finished it. It’s a linen stitch.

Mini bean scarf

I made this scarf with three skeins of Sundance Krinkle Kotton in a mini bean stitch and a size J hook. I’m not sure the color but would say it’s in the salmon/peach family. 

Iris lace scarf

I’m really happy with how this scarf turned out! The yarn is beautiful and worked up great. It’s Claudia Hand painted yarns silky wool lace and I decided to use a G hook. The stitch is an iris stitch and is easy to do. You can watch this video to learn how to do it. After I finished the whole scarf I added a scalloped edge with 7 double crochets in every other side loop. Then I added the fringe with 5 strands in each empty space.

Super chunky purple scarf

For this scarf I used two skeins of cascade Covington wool and acrylic blend yarn. I used a size 10 mm crochet hook and the stitch is a linen stitch.

Monarch scarf

I found this yarn at one of the Greenville South Carolina local yarn shops called Yarn and Y’all at the recent Southeast men’s knitting retreat. I used one skein to make this scarf in a crocheted linen stitch and also used a size H 5 mm crochet hook.

Green and brown alpaca scarf

I’m pretty sure this is alpaca yarn but I’ve been working on this scarf for so long I forget exactly what kind of yarn it is. It’s a lace weight yarn and I used a 4 mm bamboo hook to crochet a basic shell stitch. It’s incredibly soft and I think it turned out really nice.

Brown Merino scarf

I decided to try a different tuck stitch pattern and used every other needle on the machine. Look through the pictures and you can see the various stages of its development from blocking to being finished.

Green tuck lace shawl

I had some beautiful silk and wool yarn blend that I decided to make a tuck lace shawl out of on my brother KX350 knitting machine. I used 60 needles and started with an E wrap and did the first 10 rows plain then for the tuck lace stitch I put on hold every third needle and did three passes then three passes off hold. I set the tension dial to 5. The length is 526 rows. Then I wet blocked it overnight. I noticed when I blocked it there were a few places on the edges that the needles did not pick up fully so I had to make some minor repairs. Overall I think it turned out OK.

Machine knitting tuck stitch swatch

I decided to try a new stitch on the knitting machine so I used cotton thread and using 32 needles and the tension dial set at six, I did a few rows then put in hold position every third needle. Then I would knit three rows on hold position then three rows off the hold position and so forth. Now I’ll have to try this on a scarf or something 🙂
