Finished a Scarf ... for Me!

[Note: See the previous post for the true color.]

I've added a note to the bottom of this post ...

This pattern was so easy and fun to do. Victoria at the Seed Stitch was knitting one and told me it was only a 19 stitch cast on and then knit, purl (seed stitch) across. At the end of the row *cast on 5 stitches and turn. Bind off the 5 cast on stitches which will leave you with the final cast off stitch being the knit so continue purl, knit across. Repeat * every row the same. I also created a "nubby" boarder along the end when I cast off and then picked up stitches on the other end to then cast off in the "nubbies" along that side. I LOVE it!!

[I used Cascade Yarns 128 tweed.]

Note: Carol E. just left the comment " the original of the pattern is in the Winter 2005 issue of Interweave Knits (p.94). It's called the "Fickle Fingers" scarf. (Yes, think Laugh-In) The designer is Gayle Roehm, and there are 3 other variations: "Fat Fingers", "Zigzag Fingers", and "Bobble Fingers"." Now I have to check out getting this back issue ...

I think I'll knit more.

As ever, you do good work. Like your variation of putting fingers on the short ends.

BTW, the original of the pattern is in the Winter 2005 issue of Interweave Knits (p.94). It's called the "Fickle Fingers" scarf. (Yes, think Laugh-In) The designer is Gayle Roehm, and there are 3 other variations: "Fat Fingers", "Zigzag Fingers", and "Bobble Fingers".

I did one for my sister as a Xmas '05 gift in Noro Blossom (shade 5) - 3 balls worth on size 10 neeedles. Bought enough yarn to do one for myself as well, but got distracted by another project. You've inspired me to get the rest of the Blossom out and finally do it - this time doing the ends as you did.
