I have a finished thing!! My mini solutions scarf is in the books! On Monday this week I managed to tuck in all my ends and give this lovely a bath. I have a literally worn this every day since I finished blocking this.
Pattern: Mini Solutions Scarf by Kelene Kinnersly
Yarn: Treasure Goddess Yarn Super Toes Cashmere MCN gradient set in Blackbeard’s Revenge and lolodidit Everyday Sock in Naked Hippo
Needles: US 7
This puppy turned out LONG. I used roughly 515 yards of fingering weight yarn and this project is longer than my wingspan. I couldn’t be bothered to actually measure this because I couldn’t make myself take it off! This skinny shawl (aka scarf) wraps really nicely around my neck for warmth with good tails hanging down. It is very narrow in depth (maybe 10 or 11 inches) but that is fine by be. The cashmere content makes this next to skin heaven. And the color changes made this a complete and utter potato chip knitting. As is evident by all my blog posts, I was kinda obsessed with this project.
This pattern is definitely one I will do again. I can see this being a great gift knitting pattern. Soothing and squishy garter stitch but with just enough change to keep me going. And this kind of scarf is very wearable.
It turned out beautifully. I may have to try this pattern for myself and, as you suggested, for easy gift knitting. Time to go stash diving!
This is totally going in my queue!! I love long, narrow scarf/shawl things and this is gorgeous.
It looks great, and the yarn from your stash you added looks like it came with the kit.
That looks amazing, I have to look up the pattern
It turned out amazing! It is really beautiful, and I’m not surprised you are wearing it a bunch 🙂
