Too Much Sock Stash?

Posted by Sarah Lambert

Have you ever wondered what else you could do with that mountain of stash besides socks? Sarah came up with this one.

I was working for Mom on the website checking out patterns and making sure they come up correctly, when this pattern for the scarf appeared. I thought, ” Oh, this would be a fun one to try (never having done shapes before, am I nuts!) and it would also show off some yarn colors nicely. So Mom supplied me with the pattern and the yarn. It’s a Regia 4 ply sock yarn called Avenue Color (coming soon to the website) and the Regia solid color white. The pattern is a Cabin Fever pattern called, CallingCast On All Angles. Here’s how it progressed. There was an Oopsie with one of the middle blocks where the TV got more attention than the knitting which meant all the cast on stitches went on one side which meant a mess and another hour of backtracking and starting over. ARGHHH!

See what you think of it.

Cast on with the solid color and use those all important stitch markers!

Contrast Color Added

 

Add a little color and things look a bit different.

 

 

 

First Block

 

 One block completed!

 

Two blocks.

Two Blocks

And now three blocks. After the initial blocks you work smaller Three Blocksblocks around the neck and then complete the scarf with the larger blocks

 

 And now the finished product!

Calling All Angles

Testimonials

The yarn I ordered over the net has arrived safely today. I am delighted with the colours & can hardly wait to get knitting. Last year when I was in Germany I purchased some of the Regia brand & was wondering how I would get some more until I found your website.Thank you again for your efficient service.
