Some time last fall, I was overcome with the urge to knit a red (or reddish) scarf. I went prowling around my LYS, and picked up this multi-coloured sock yarn that I liked. I carried it around the store for awhile, as is my habit when a yarn has caught my eye, but ultimately went with something different (which I ended up not using at all, as I got busy with Christmas knitting - which I still haven't shown you - ridiculous). A few weeks ago, I popped into the LYS for some other purpose, but that same yarn grabbed my fancy again, and this time made it into my bag. I came home, sat down and cast on for this scarf (modeled by my beautiful, and younger than she looks, daughter).
Pattern - Multnomah
Yarn - Austerman Step, colourway 0134
Needle - 3.25mm
Notes/Modifications - After looking at many, many other Multnomahs on Ravelry, I chose to knit this with a one stitch centre column, instead of using five stitches as called for in the pattern. I like it a lot like this, although I didn't think about slipping the stitch on the wrong sides until it was too late, which is kind of too bad - that would have looked sweet. I also used a chart written up by another generous Raveler, which helped work the lace into the increases, and avoid blocks of garter stitch. I like it, and I'm going to enjoy wearing it. If I can get it away from my beautiful, and younger than she looks, daughter.
