Plum Scarf


Yarn:  Socks that Rock, coloway Lenore.
Pattern:  Long Ridged Scarf by Jo Sharp.
Needles:  US #4 (3.5mm)
Comments:  I am so enamored of this simple pattern and the fabric that it produces.
The way it scrunches, folds, drapes, and moves is really beguiling.  And that's just the way it looks.  It feels just as lovely--I have made the pattern in a variety of yarns.  See here and here and here.  I will probably make more.  It's particularly pretty in this type of sock yarn, and 350 to 400 yards will do a nice, lengthy scarf.  If you have some sock yarn that is too pretty or too soft to use for a utilitarian item such as socks, this would be perfect.


The above photos show it fresh off the needles.  Here's how it looks after blocking.

It lost the "bounce" it had before blocking.
Still, it's a nice, soft scarf...

 for when you don't want one that is too heavy or warm.

I have some in a similar colorway - maybe it won't be socks...
