fil scarf

father-in-law scarfI finished FIL’s scarf in time for his birthday yesterday. It’s a very simple lengthwise garter stitch scarf in Hand Jive Knits’ Nature’s Palette (chocolate) fingering weight. Quite possibly the most perfect travelling project ever.

The lovely, subtle color variations in the yarn really didn’t want much fuss. Plus, FIL isn’t exactly the fussy type. So, to make your very own, CO 300 using the cable cast on on US3s and knit ’till your heart’s content. I was originally a bit worried about binding off and finally decided on the suspended bind-off. My scarf used just about 3 skeins and is 6-feet by 10-inches.nature's palette yarn

The yarn has a rather tight twist and felt a little sticky while I was knitting, but oh my, did it soften up after a bath. The finished scarf is stretchy, springy, and soft and should be an appropriate weight for our mild winters in Charleston.

Isn’t the color just lovely?

It’s on Ravelry here.
