Did you happen to read my latest blog post, Happiness is 1969 and a Junky Ol’ Chevy?
Early September in northeast Pennsylvania was cool! The first time I went up there we had to use the heater inside, it was that chilly. And walking after dark, you better have had a sweater.
I saw old Autumn in the misty morn stand shadowless like silence, listening to silence. Thomas Hood
In my latest blog post, it was 1969 and now, . . . well, here we go into September 2014, and school, and football, and orange and black decorations, and pumpkins, and sweaters and scarves. Especially scarves! Now’s the time to knit one for yourself or a son or daughter headed out to college.
My Apple Orchard scarf, knit easy, is just that! Easy as apple pie! And don’t we love apple pie!
For my Apple Orchard Scarf, Knit Easy, I used Lion Brand Landscapes yarn in Apple Orchard color. One percent acrylic yarn, it’s self-striping design will knit up in luscious hues of apples and autumn!
Size 10 needles and here is the pattern:
Multiple of 2 + 2
I cast on 32 stitches.
Rows 1 – 6: Knit.
Rows 7 and 9: K1, *yo, k2tog; rep from * to end, k1.
Rows 8 and 10: K1, *yo, p2tog; rep from * to end, k1.
Repeat these 10 rows for the pattern. Add fringe or leave it plain. Either way you’re ready for those weekend knitting trips and rides to the apple orchard for late summer fruits and pumpkins. You can knit this up in a matter of days!
Have fun, and as always, take your knitting to heart!
