  2. This looks great – I think I will give it a go! I’m a fairly new knitter, so really all the projects I’ve done have been combinations of garter & stockinette stitch, so I’ve been looking for a simple pattern that will teach me a new (& easy!) type of stitch. I was thinking about making another scarf as I’m about to go travelling for a few weeks and wanted something large but easy to knit on my train journeys. Now just to find the perfect yarn… 🙂

  3. Hi Whit – I’m nearly finished this scarf! I just wanted to ask, did you find it got any longer after you’d blocked it? I’ve never blocked any of my projects so I’m not sure if the blocking will cause it to stretch out more.

    • I am so glad you tried the pattern! Blocking does make the scarf longer (with mine it stretched about 2″ longer). Other materials may have a greater stretch when wet (example: cotton blends). I usually try the piece on my body while stretching it with a light tension downward. This helps me get an idea of the length of the piece post- blocking. Not super mathematical, but it works. Feel free to email if you have other questions: 😊
