Scarf number 3

Animal Planet has Shark Week, apparently I’m having scarf week. But not to fret, I’ve only made three scarfs to date. I finished this scarf about a month ago and gave it to my mother Monday night, so this seems an appropriate week to talk about scarfs as gifts.

This scarf was created with Red Heart Pink Camo Yarn and a Boye E Hook. I worked nine rows of 20 doubles followed by a row of gaping columns. The gaps were created by chaining 1 after a double and skipping 1 stitch. This created the necessary 20 stitches for the 11th rows (and the other multiples of 11). You can see from the picture that I worked two consecutive doubles at the begging and end  of each row, giving the appearance of 12 columns, 8 of which that are gaped. I repeated this until pattern until I finished the skein of yarn, leaving the finishing end a few rows shy of the nine that usually follow the gaping rows.

This scarf was started directly after Jenn’s scarf. I wanted to knock out another gift before returning to the mittens, and I knew that I could quickly make another scarf. I had intended it as a present for Señor Party. We were at a happy hour at CB Pots when I showed him the progress I had made. It was apparent that he was not a fan on the non-consecutive doubles.

I went to my parents latter that week and my mother enjoyed the progress I had made. When I finished the scarf I told her I would give it to her. I’ve had the scarf finished for a while now, and when I visited my parents Monday night I finally gave her the scarf.

As you can see she seems to be enjoying this one skein wonder. Have you ever ended up recycling a gift and if so how did that turn out?
