Eleanor used a simple double rib stich to create this elegant scarf: Cast on 84 stitches, for all rows, K2, P2. She used a #10 circular needle to create a soft, loose texture in the fabric. This shows off the silky, organic feel of the wool.
Eleanor: I started knitting in the Spring of 2009, (with our glorious knitting circle-LOL) then I stopped in summer, and continued in the Fall of 09. No one else in my family knits, but they are very talented in sewing. My grandmother was a professional seamstress. She made wedding dresses, and did all of the bead work by hand.
Eleanor: The thing I liked best about this project was the texture of the yarn. It is so soft and luxurious. Also, the colour…
Eleanor’s Tip: Bigger is really better!!! The fatter the yarn, the faster you will finish your project.I’d like to thank Eleanor for sharing this beatiful project with us. She was kind enough to model this fabulous scarf — here it is!
