A week or so ago I finished the send Hollygrove scarf and was at a loss of what to work on next. Several sweaters are in my queue but I’m not ready to concentrate on a sweater. I decided on the Easy Drop Stitch Scarf for the next project. The pattern had been in my Ravelry library for a while but I would see some that had been done by others that I loved and then see some I didn’t love so much and had just convinced myself to try it. Denise made one or two and told me how cute they were so . . that’s how this became my next project. The yarn I’m using is Malabrigo Silky Merino in the Bahia color.
The pattern is so easy and the yarn feels so soft and snuggly. I hadn’t even looked at it to notice the wavy motion of the yellow/orange but I like it. This one may be a gift for a friend whose husband did a big favor for us or . . it may not be. I think I have enough yarn to make a second scarf .. depending on how much yarn this one takes.
The only modification I made was to add four extra stitches, which I do two purls on each edge . . two purls on every row. That keeps the edges from wanting to curl. Isn’t it going to be a cheerful, fun scarf to wear?
