Wife, Mummy, Nurse: FO: Missoni Inspired Scarf

FO: Missoni Inspired Scarf

In August, I knit myself a scarf. Yes, I may have been a bit crazy; it was warm in Maryland. Plus, there were two KALs that I knit it for: Ravellenic games 2016 (with Team Knit Equals Joy) and Gilmore Girls KAL (with Geeky Girls Knit and The Knitting Broomstick).

I used the Missoni inspired scarf as a guide, but changed it up a bit.

Notes: Cast On 41 stitches. I knit a garter stitch border of two stitches on each side. Between the border: K1 SSK K6 YO K1 YO K7 *MD K7 YO K1 YO K6 K2TOG K1. (*MD is mitered decrease. Slip 2 stitches together, K1, pass the 2 slipped stitches over.)

I knit 20 rows of the following colors:

Alpaca love (discontinued) (Pink)
Brown sheep Lamb's Pride (Lemondrop)
Paton's classic wool (Gray)
Full o' sheep (Clementine)
Paton's classic wool (Blue)
Full o' sheep (Red)
Alpaca love (Green)
Paton's classic wool (Light grey heather)
Full o' sheep (Dark pink)
Paton's classic wool (Natural)
Cascade 220 (Brown)
Full o' sheep (Green)
Full o' sheep (Purple)

The above colors were only knit from my stash, either randomly or picked by Charis.

What's on your needles (or hook if you crochet)? What project have you recently completed?


  1. It's amazing how randomly picked colors can work so well together. Perhaps it's because we all choose a palette that we already wear/like and they coordinate together.

  2. I like the colors of the scarf. Very pretty.

  3. This blog is nice. I admire what you have done here. I like the part where you say you are doing this to give back but I would assume by all the comments that this is working for you as well.

  4. I like the design on your scarf and the colors you used, very pretty and knitting is so relaxing.
