First Knitted Scarf, Completed
First Knitted Scarf, Completed
January 2015


Last night I finally completed my first, knitted scarf. It's five feet long (plus an extra 4" on each end for the tassels/fringe that Bonn requested) and seven inches wide.

The left side of the scarf (in the photo above) was the side I started on. You can see that the corner isn't all that even on the left-hand side. Once I learned what I was doing wrong I decided just to make corrections and go on instead of ripping it all out again. (I ended up cutting off about twelve feet of yarn because I'd torn it out so many times the yarn was lifeless.) There are holes from dropped stitches here and there, but I've just described them as places where moths attacked the scarf.

I made this using a garter stitch, knitting on both sides of the scarf. While this was a good, safe idea for a first project, I quickly learned that a scarf done in just a garter stitch is, well, boring.

Next up will be an infinity scarf/cowl that Bonn has requested. It will be done on circular needles and with a pattern.

Awesome! And circular needles are fun.

It is good for a first effort, and making mistakes is good, in as much as you learn a lot that way, and avoid them next time. It should certainly keep Bonn warm.
