I am a writer and photographer with a love for yarn, a gift for gabbing, and a talent for acquiring hobbies. So basically, I like collecting things, talking too much, and taking pretty pictures. And squishing soft stuff. Like kitty bellies. Yum!
“All things are an exchange for fire, and fire for all things, as goods for gold and gold for goods.” – Heraclitus, 6th century BCE
The Betty & Veronica Scarf, named after two infamous girls constantly vying for one man?s heart, will war with yours as well. Designed to showcase complementary handspun and thick-thin single ply yarns, this pattern contains two versions of a ruched scarf knit lengthwise. Version one, The Betty, has a simple, clean ribbed edging, while version two, The Veronica, creates a more dramatic ruffled edging. Suitable for beginner and intermediate level knitters, it features easy to learn increasing and decreasing techniques and provides a great opportunity for by-the-pattern knitters to explore the creativity that comes with learning how to forge your own path.
The pattern is written out and contains sizing available for both scarf and neckwarmer lengths. Approximately 75?100 yards (69?91 meters) of the main color yarn and 40-85 yards (37?78 meters) of the contrast color yarn are needed in worsted, aran or bulky weights.
Gauge is not really important, but if you are a
stickler it should be as follows in St st:
Worsted: 4.5 stitches = 1 inch on 8 US needles
Aran: 4 stitches = 1 inch on 9 US needles
Bulky: 3.5 stitches = 1 inch on 10 US needle
