Here is the scarf I knitted for my friend, Karyn, who does the Herbal Highway podcast each week. She received a skein of yarn from one of her students and I gladly offered to knit it up for her.
The 2-ply skein was a little over 4 oz, about 200 yards and very evenly spun. She thought it was handspun, but I think it was mill processed from some home-raised sheep. At any rate, it has a wonderful sheepy scent and is fairly soft.
To get the longest scarf possible, I used my size 10 Addi Lace Click needles and cast on 27 sts. I started with a few rows of garter stitch and kept 2 stitches of garter stitch on the edges. I selected this lace pattern from my Japanese 1000 Knitting Patterns book. I like this pattern because it is the same up and down, so I did not have to knit two pieces then graft them together in the middle. The scarf is about 7" wide by 48" long after blocking and I had just a few inches of yarn left.
Thank you to Karyn for her educational podcast and for this lovely knitting challenge.
