Knit Simple Fall 2013, photo by Jack Deutsch
I’ve made the cover of the upcoming Knit Simple Fall 2013 issue! It should hit the newsstands on July 23rd. This is my second cover and I’m thrilled.
The Sideways Garter Scarf is worked from end to end in very long rows, but there aren’t very many of them. Eight inch (20.5 cm) tails are left at each end of the row, later to be tied together to form a fringe.
The yarn is Debbie Bliss Rialto Chunky and it’s so squishy, cozy and soft when knitted up. I can imagine wearing around my neck this coming winter. Right now with 30 degree temperatures in Vancouver it’s hard to believe it will ever be cold again, but soon enough it will be time for scarves and mitts.
There are also matching garter stitch fingerless mitts to accompany the scarf which are also worked sideways. Short rows form the thumb gusset.
Both of these projects hold so much potential for stash busting. Or better yet, enter the Knit Simple contest to win the cover kit.
