Okay, I am still failing horribly at the one-knit scarf and have distracted myself once again with a different pattern altogether.
This is the bamboo stitch.
With limited time on a weekday (come, even knitters have to work!), I naturally chose an easy pattern to practice and found this little beauty on The Weekly Stitch under April 2011. It’s perfect for beginners, using purl for rows 2 and 4, then knitting rows 1 and 4 with yarn over (YO).
Having failed so many times at the one-knit scarf, it cheered me up to manage this:
Sapphire-N-Purls has another blog entirely for knitting rambles. I’ll certainly give it a read this weekend! In the mean-time, I have actually emailed Stephanie Pearl-McPhee to ask how the one-knit scarf is done. Hopefully she’ll answer…
