You know, it’s a lot easier to crank out a scarf in Mistake Rib than in cable-every-row Crazy Town.
Mistake Rib is a great stitch pattern for scarves. It’s easy for your fingers to memorize, doesn’t curl, and produces a thick squooshy fabric.
The idea with Mistake Rib is that you’re knitting K2P2 but accidentally left off a stitch at the end. Cast on a multiple of 4 stitches, plus 3. Then:
Every row: *knit 2, purl 2* knit 2, purl 1
In the case of the non-red Red Scarf, I cast on 33 stitches: 28 + 3, plus 2 more for a nice selvedge (edge).
Every row: Slip 1 purlwise wyif, *knit 2, purl 2* knit 2, purl 1, knit 1
Incidentally, for those of you playing Sims 3 and looking for a good deal on the World Adventures expansion pack: I did some window-shopping this morning and found the best deal through Amazon.com: $24.99 and eligible for free shipping
if you put at least one more cent’s worth of merchandise in your cart.
For some reason this page is being “hidden” in their search results. It took me a little while to find it, even though I knew exactly what I was looking for. World Adventures is being offered by a lot of different merchants, but the official “ships from and sold by Amazon.com” is the best deal.
