Making another scarf

This is the second scarf that I made over the holidays. It's a lace pattern that I'm particularly fond of, and it makes for very quick knitting.

The wool: Magnum Cascade Yarns, colour 9452 (I used the same in the first scarf - check it out to see a better rendition of the colour).

The pattern: Make sure the number of stitches you start with is divisible by three (I think I used nine stitches with this one) and then knit one, yarn over, knit two together on every row.

You can see another version of this scarf (with very different wool) here and here.

This scarf went to my mom. She's given me many amazing homemade gifts over the years, so it's only fair.

Erin! Because of your pretty scarf post, I went out yesterday and bought some knitting supplies. I'm not making anything in particular at the moment, because I am just trying to get the hang of the basic stitches. Hopefully there will be many scarves and hats in my future!

Yes! I saw that you were experimenting and a little frustrated. You can make a pretty great scarf with a basic knit stitch, so you should just start with that. I don't have many moves beyond fact, I've only ever knit scarves. Maybe I need to knit a hat too!
