Quick Knit December – Round 2!

Once again, I give you a coupon on a quick, easy holiday knit for those last minute scrambles.  One ball of yarn, one hour (if you can count), and one beautiful product.

The Zigamorph Scarf uses one skein of Madelintosh Worsted (or about 200 yards of worsted weight yarn) and uses dropped stitches to create an eye-catching zig-zag effect.

I have knit this scarf over and over again, experimenting with all sorts of yarn brands and fiber types.  This here is Lana Grossa Bambu.  Soft, shiny, and just as warm as the merino, but a little lighter.

This blue/gray is Sweet Georgia.  The darker blue in back is Madelintosh.

The stitches really pop in the blocking – and blocking is ridiculously easy.  There is absolutely no thought involved.  I soak my scarves in warm water for about 10 minutes.  Then, I throw a towel over the shower rod, and sling the soaking scarf over the towel.  The weight of the water pulls the ends of the scarf and elongates the dropped stitches.  The finished items falls consistently between 5 and 6 feet in length.

To receive $2 off your pattern purchase, enter coupon code: QuickKnitZigs at checkout.

Not a knitter?  Not to worry!  I have a few premade scarves available in my Etsy shop.  I can also do custom colors and fibers.
