One Skein is Enough

One skein of yarn (220 yards) and four days is all it took to knit Morning Surf Scarf.


I'm sure you'll forgive me for not modeling it properly at the beach. It's just a bit too warm for wool around the neck right now.


Pattern: Morning Surf Scarf
Cast On Stitches: 36
Yarn: Cascade 220 Paints
Color: 9843 Paradise Beach
Needles: US 8


Aggressive blocking resulted in a scarf that measures 7" x 51". Just right!

SSK wanted to know if the stitch pattern is reversible, so I'm adding a picture to show both sides of the scarf.

  3. I love the waves in the scarf and the waves of the ocean in the background. Perfect. Do you ever need a scarf in Tx? Maybe when you travel up to OK.

    I talked to Joy #1 yesterday while she was still out at camp and I was joking about grades, college, and scholarships (I had just enrolled her in school). Somehow OC came up and I guess it is high on her list. Funny because I assumed all this time in NE she'd be more comfortable with York College. 3 more years (or less) for her to decide her fate. :)

  4. The scarf is so breezy and beautiful.!
    I wish I was sitting in that chair on the beach! Today our temp will hit 90 degrees. An ocean breeze would be wonderful right now!

  5. Very pretty, and even if it doesn't get too cold in TX, it will be perfect for OK and Colorado! Is the stitch pattern reversible?

  7. "Agressive blocking" sounds like a contact sport!

  8. It turned out so pretty, and I love the reverse side as well.

    ps. an elephant ear is a big flat piece of fried dough with sugar on it. about as bad for you as something can be, but they are good.

  19. Simply gorgeous! I really love this one...and it looks great on both sided. The sawtooth edge makes a fun finish. Don't blame you for not modeling the scarf...it is too hot! Happy Day ((HUGS))
