Evanston Yarn Grab

Dear readers,

I brought home some wonderful yarn from Chicago (Evanston) from Close Knit.  They gave me a cowl pattern from a sample and I planned to make it up this weekend.

J. had other plans. He loved the yarn so I ended up making a scarf for him (and adapting their pattern).  I'm definitely avoiding making the "Dr. Who" scarf he's coveting for as long as possible.

The yarn is Malabrigo Rasta in Soriano.  Size 19 needles *yeah*!

The pattern for the scarf from Close Knit:
Cast on 12 stitches
Row 1:  k3,p3,k3,p3
Row 2:  p3, k3, p3, k3
Repeat until the length is to your satisfaction.

I am making a cowl from the left over yarn for me!

Still.  Addicted.


  1. Your stitching is GORGEOUS! Look at all the scarves you've made! Love your yarn too - jealous! I'm currently obsessed with finding quick gifts to knit for my family. I did a fast hat for my BIL, and bought yarn today at Hancock to do an Auburn hat for my sister - gotta find a pattern first - and maybe one for my nephew...the obsession is never-ending!

  2. Thanks Sister! I too am obsessed with making scarves and other gifts for Christmas!! Wow! I can't wait to see the bounty you are making up!!

    War Eagle! Big game coming up!
