So I showed progress on this scarf…um…last week? Anyway, the more I worked on it the bigger it got. I know, I know – it’s supposed to get bigger but this scarf seemed to get wider as well.
This is how it started:
And THIS is how it ended:
By the time I bound off I didn’t know if it was 1) a scarf 2) a table runner or 3) a decorative couch cover. It was gorgeous by they way ( I used two strands of Caron Simply Soft in Pagoda) and I was really enjoying looking at it on the back of my couch.
Luckily my Mom fixed the situation by calling it a “drape” and took it quite literally off my hands. She had it in her car so fast I didn’t even get a picture of her wearing it. She has pure black hair (and since her hair color is real she has natural blue highlights) and it looked stunning on her – I should have gotten a picture dagnabbit!
I thought about seeing if I could actually sell a pattern, but since I can’t seem to work out the logistics of sizing I will share it for free. Knit at your will, sell the completed projects on Etsy – I don’t really care. I figure the pattern deserves to be out in the knitting universe.
** The Pattern **
- Needles: Size 15US (10mm) Straight Needles
- Yarn: 2 Packages of Caron Simply Soft in Pagoda (2 strands necessary if you are hoping to achieve thickness) – (why does everything knitting related sound so dirty?- TF)

So there you have it friends and neighbors, from my noggin to yours. I want to give a big round of applause for my husband who is putting up with me. (You’re welcome -TF). I also wanted to add that I am reading all of your wonderful posts but not commenting as much as I would like. No worries, Dragon Speak will be back eventually. I hope you like the pattern, it is the very least I can do to share because all of your blogs are making me a better knitter, spinner, crocheter and person.
Man that was cheesy – I’m out. 🙂 (Do people still say “I’m out?”. -TF)
very pretty! thanks for the pattern 🙂
Thank you for the pattern and the enjoyable reading 🙂
Tell your mom to come back with the drape so you can take a picture. I want to see it on someone. It is beautiful!
I like Trevor’s little interjections 😛
It came out gorgeous! And I love hubby’s blurbs but you’ll have to let me know on that “I’m out” thing LOL. I often sign off with “Peace, out! tlo” (tlo are my initials)
Hey, it is pretty – and it came out really well, I think. Drapes are good. 🙂 or wraps. Tell TF that it is his mind that makes everything dirty. lol.
Thanks for the pattern, I’ll try It out someday!
This is really beautiful – and the color is brilliant.
Thanks for sharing the pattern – but one simple question – what is the *pattern repeat number?* Multiple of __________
Love the design – have bookmarked the page 🙂
Gorgeous pattern & color…..seed stitch rocks!
Gotta love it when someone loves your knitting that much – even if it wasn’t quite what you expected!
Gorgeous, both the color and the pattern! Thanks for sharing!
Every time you do one of these patterns you’re proving yourself wrong (seeing as you said you couldn’t design) and me right! 😛 Well done 🙂
P.S. Like Lolly, I also find Trevor’s interjections hilarious 😉
Beautiful stitch pattern. Thank you for sharing.
