Jen’s Scarf

Jen’s Scarf, originally uploaded by destiknit.


From the beginning, this scarf was an accident – a beautiful accident. First, I ordered yarn by the ounces indicated in the pattern. Isn’t yardage a major requirement? Oh yeah. Next, this color is supposed to be a Cornflower Blue. It is what it is – Purple. OK. Then, silly me, I just start knitting away. No swatch, no gauge (not needed really), no reviewing the pattern.

Knit, knit, knit.

After one skien of yarn I realize that the pattern is not what it is supposed to be. Hmm. *scratch head**review pattern(now)*It seems I printed the 2 page pattern from the front to the back and I hadn’t not turned the page over, not once. What to do? Frog it and start again? Or keep going? Obviously, I kept knitting – and I am glad I did!



  1. Hi,

    I’m glad you kept going with the scarf, it’s beautiful. Can you tell me where you got the pattern from? I would love to make one too.

  2. I planned to make a scarf using the hugs and kisses cable chart. Because I was not paying attention, I ended up knitting a horseshoe cable scarf. I did not realize these two cables were cousins! ~Thank you for your comment! :)
