Rainshadow Scarf with Sivia Harding
This ram’s-horn shaped garter stitch scarf features two different kinds of short rows: one for the color wedge insert along the narrow edge and another that shapes the lengthwise stripes. We'll learn about these two short row methods (and why you need both!) while we work the swatch. We will talk about lace, beads, stripes, and how to deal with other issues such as weaving in ends and carrying yarns. Warning: Addictive knitting ahead!
For the scarf: two 100-gram skeins of fingering or sock weight yarn in two colorways that you think will look great in stripes;
For the class swatch, a small amount of two yarns; 3.75mm/US5 circular needle, 24" or 32" long; stitch markers; steel crochet hook, size 13 (0.75 mm) for placing beads; size 6/0 seed beads (390 for the scarf: size 6/0 seed beads (or about 33 grams) and for the swatch: about 16. (Please try to find Japanese beads if possible for the larger inner hole.)
