a ruffle and a how toTuesday, March 25, 2008
For some reason, Easter weekend did not provide much knitting time for me. And, can you believe that I forgot to put the birds in their baskets? Yep. I ended up putting them out on the kitchen table for the kids the day after. A little anti-climactic if you ask me, but they did seem to love them.
Since it took me FOREVER to try to figure this out, I thought that I would (try to) show you how it is made.

This is where the directions became very confusing for me. The directions have you holding your finger under the needle wrapping yarn, blah blah blah. (They lost me there). What I did was, insert the tip of the right hand needle into the stitches on the left as if to knit normally.
Move it down your needle and knit the stitch normally.
Those few threads on the top of the needle become the yarn.
Slide it down,
and off. If you knit into the same color on every row then your scarf will be the same color on both sides.
If you reverse the color, that you knit into, every row, then your scarf will be reversible. (confused?) I knit one row into the light pink. Then at the end of that row, flipped the yarn and went into the dark pink. This made it light pink on one side, dark pink on the other.
