Shiny Seafoam Scarf that Rocks!

So last week, Dad calls and says, "Hey, do you have an extra scarf handy?" (meaning, I need a gift) Dad knows he has kind of earned this right to request handknit scarves to give as gifts because he will often make "donations" to the stash (e.g., here's some money for yarn shopping). So here's my quick knit, fancy scarf, made from leftover gorgeous yarn (albeit difficult to photograph yarn) from the Wrap that Rocks.

Pattern: My own design (I guess) using the Seafoam stitch pattern from Vogue Knitting Stitchionary Vol.1; cast on 16 stitches

Yarn: Blue Moon Fiber Arts Luna, 100% nylon, color Atomic

Needles: size 13 (I also tried size 11 and preferred that, but was worried wouldn't have enough of my "leftover" yarn so went up in needle size)

Notes: quick knit; can't wait to make this in a worsted weight yarn too

Now back to Socktoberfest!!

Very nice! It sounds like you should keep a little "stock" on hand! I too just got "commissioned" for a project. It can be fun if there's not too much pressure/deadline!

Very pretty! Your dad cracks me up--but I guess it makes sense if he's a stash benefactor!

Will you dad donate to me to buy yarn? I'll gladly knit scarfs in return!

The color of that scarf is really pretty!

Love that Atomic 6 ribbon yarn. Both that wrap & the scarf.

And how can you say no to someone who contributes to your stash-enhancing bank?

The scarf looks great! That's so funny that your dad requests presents! He sounds like a cool guy. :) And hello, you look great in that pic. :)

I can't believe you can just whip a scarf out like that so quickly. And so pretty.
Well done you :-)
