Trying My Hand At Short Row Knitting . . . Spiral Scarf Beginnings


I have been wanting to learn to do ‘short rows’ in my knitting for awhile now.  I don’t know why I thought it would be too complicated! The most difficult thing about short rows is picking up the wraps around the wrapped stitches.  It just takes a little patience, and some finagling.

Knit in a fabulous organic cotton yarn.  One of my favorite colors too!

She’s beginning to spiral nicely!

I have plenty of yarn to make this a nice long scarf. I want one that will wrap . . .

This scarf pattern is fairly easy.  I started my spiral scarf this morning.  So, as you can see, it goes fairly quickly.  I am no speed-knitter, yet!  (I have something of a short attention span, so I bounce around from project to project.)  My ambition is to find a nice pattern like this with some lacy edging.  Wouldn’t that be spectacular?

Here is a video from Very Pink Knits on YouTube.  Stacy is my ‘go-to’ girl for knitting tutorials.  She explains everything so well, and makes you just believe you can do it.  She also gives you a link to the FREE pattern!

Well, that’s it for today.  Now I am going to work on this scarf until my eyes are blurry . . . 😀

Happy Stitching!
