Nearly Perfect Chunky Scarf
Happy New Year! Almost a year ago I found this beautiful pattern and I have been on and off knitting this scarf for my sister. I used less than three skeins of Vanna’s Choice rose color yarns and US 9 knitting needles for this project. The scarf is about 49 inches long and 9 inches wide, so it’s kind of chunky. Basically, you can use whatever yarn and knit your desire of length. The pattern has some new stitches that I needed some helps from YouTube to learn the stitches. Thanks God for the technology!
You can find the pattern here, and I thought I might include some video tutorials to help us knit. Just click on the abbreviation for videos!
K = Knit
K1-B (Knit 1 through back loop) = Insert needle into the back loop of the stitch and knit it.
K2-B (Knit 2 through back loop) = Same as K1-b, except you knit 2 stitches through the back loop (one stitch after the other, not K2Tog through back loop).
K2Tog = Knit 2 Together
M1 (Make One) = Insert needle from behind under running thread between the stitch just worked and the next stitch, and PURL this thread.
M5 (Make Five, a 5 stitch increase in one stitch) = (K1, YO, K1, YO, K1). Just do the first set from the video but you need to make five stitches instead of three.
P = Purl
P2Tog = Purl 2 stitches together
P3Tog = Purl 3 stitches together. Same idea like P2Tog, instead of purl two stitches together, you need to purl three stitches together.
SK2P (Slip 1, Knit 2 Together, Pass over) is done as follows:
1. Slip 1 stitch.
2. Knit 2 stitches together.
3. Pass the slipped stitch over.
SSK = Slip, Slip, Knit
Kitchener Stitch (to graft two pieces together)
I pray for my family member will soon to confess that she is a sinner, and start seeing the Light of God. God is powerful and He can restore our ugliness in our life as long as we turn to Him and not running away from Him.
My scarf remains the unattractive line that symbolizes my old life is imperfect and powerless to control. But now, my life is still not perfect and powerless to control; however I have Jesus fully in control.
