Random Acts of Knitness

So, I was recently introduced to formspring.me, which is site where users can answer questions of whoever stumbles upon their page. The account user can decide to answer or not, I suppose, but it's a fun and quirky site with a lot of fun Q&As. ANYWAY, I stumbled across a page via a blog I really enjoy following and asked her if she wanted me to knit her anything. Mostly because I just wanted something new to do because I am sick to death of my current doomed project, and secondly because I didn't think she'd actually answer me.

She did with: Knit me one of those INSANE scarves that wrap around you neck three times and still almost trail on the floor. Happy, happy bunny :)

Then I asked what color(s) and she said: White/Cream:):) I really hope I'm not being duped here, I want a scarf made with love in every stitch:) Well, hate could be in every stitch, I don't care, I like freebies :):)

So that sealed the deal. I had recently acquired a bunch of soft whiteish cream yarn from a friend that was moving, so I had everything I needed. I knit it length-wise: 300 STITCHES, and about 15 rows up. It was super scrunched on the needles, but it only took 3 days to knit up. This was the result all rolled up:

And this is it in all it's epic, glorious length. ^_^

  1. You need to get some KnitPicks options needles. They have cable connectors so you can make longer cables for wide things like that. That skirt I'm making is on 64".

    So if you want to make a KnitPicks order, let me know because I really really want a ball winder.

  2. I actually do have the interchangeable needles, and that's what these were knit on, but with the package I got it only had 4 cables, 2 16" and 2 24"s I think. I want to get longer cables though, I didn't know you could buy them by themselves.

Staghorn Scarf Pattern

Staghorn                                  
The yarn you use and needle size probably doesn't make a lick of a difference. I used Vanna White's line of yarn because I loved the color, it was super soft, and cheap. It took 1 1/2 balls of yarn. I used size 10 1/2 needles (6.5 mm).
Abbreviations: k: knit p: purl sl1kw: slip 1st stitch knit-wise sl1pw: slip 1st stitch purl-wise BC: place 2sts on a cable needle in the back, k2, k2 from cable needle FC: place 2sts on a cable needle in the front, k2, k2 from cable needle
Cast on 30 stitches.
Row 1 (WS andall other wrong side rows): sl1pw, k2, p2, k2, p16, k2, p2, k2, p1. Row 2: sl1kw, p2, k2, p2, k4, BC, FC, k4, p2, k2, p2, k1.  Row 4: sl1kw,  p2, k2, p2, k2, BC, k4, FC, k2, p2, k2, p2, k1. Row 6: sl1kw,  p2, k2, p2, BC, k8, FC, p2, k2, p2, k1.
Repeat rows 1-6 until desired length.* Cast off while following the WS of the pattern, it looked most natural casting off after Row 2.
*My favorite rule of thumb for knitting scarves is to knit …
