This was probably the quickest knit I’ve ever made, even counting the two times I ripped half of it out. The pattern is the Super-Fast, Ultra-Cozy Scarf by Jen Reilly [Ravelry link]. It called for US 19 (15mm) and CO 10 stitches, but I used US 15 (10mm) needles which worked fine.
Also, I tried casting on 10 stitches and it seemed too skinny. I ripped it out and cast on 12 and it didn’t seem to make a difference, so I cast on 14 and it seems great. I really liked the colour-mixing that was happening with only 10 stitches, and it pools a little more than desireable at 14 stitches, but at knit night both wenchlette and yarnpiggy said that it won’t matter once it’s on my neck.
The scarf itself is a little bit on the short side (due to the extra 4 stitches) but it still makes a nice cozy knot at my chin. I was inspired by yarnpiggy’s Instant Gratification scarf made from Mal Rasta. I fell in love with it so much I went out to find the same colourway. I’m not quite 100% happy with the more muted tones of my skein, but they’re still beautiful. View my Rasta Scarf on my Ravelry project page.
