Finished Prjoect: Branching Out Scarf

October 3, 2005 by
Filed under: Knitting 

Project Specs:
Pattern: Branching Out scarf by Susan Pierce Lawrence from
Yarn: Filatura Di Crosa Ultralight
Needles: US 4 straight bamboo needles on the ends and US 6 straight bamboo needles on the rest
Size: 6 inches x 56 inches
This fuzzy yarn does not rip out easily, making it difficult to unknit mistakes, which there were many. Once blocked, the skinny ends evened out with the rest of the scarf (you can’t even tell I knit the ends two needle sizes smaller) and the yarn softened. Blocking rules. I do love the leaf pattern, but I could not get the lace pattern in my head and had to constantly refer to the chart. Next time I would make this scarf in a lovely non-fuzzy green yarn. Check out the knitalong for this pattern.

  4. So pretty! A gal in my knitting group is making that scarf too. I am stalled in my first lace project (Flower Basket Shawl) and need to get back to it. I’m very chart dependent with it (so far).
