I enjoy trying new yarn and new stitch patterns and seeing what I can come up with. Scarves are one of my favorite things to make because there is a fairly quick turn around.
I was looking at knitting stitches on Knitting on the Net and found a stitch called Waterfall. It is a multiple of 6 +3 and decided to give it a try.
I had two skeins of Pebbles by Classic Elite Yarns in color # 2891 – it looks like a sea-foam green to me. It’s 75% cotton and 25% acrylic and used size 6 needles. This yarn has an interesting texture, the yarn itself looks like a thin braid.
I cast on 31 stitches. That’s 10 stitches for the border (5 on each side) and 21 stitches for the pattern ( 3 repeats x 6 = 18 + 3 = 21)
I did 5 rows of seed stitch at the beginning and end. This is what I got.
I was very pleased. I wasn’t sure with the textured yarn how well the stitch definition would be, but it turned out well.
I would recommend you give this one a try – it knits up fast – I did mine in just a few days while working on other projects. I think the pattern does well with some blocking, so you might want to take that into consideration when choosing your yarn. I soaked this one and then pinned it out and it worked great.
My scarf measures 6-1/2″ x 47″ after blocking.
