Wednesdays Are For Knitting: Smooshy Chevron Scarf

A scarf knit from an entire skein of sock yarn takes a very very long time to complete. Nearly two months to complete, if you’re me. But, a scarf made from an entire skein of Dream in Color Smooshy with Cashmere is totally worth the time invested.

It’s very very long. Over 10 feet, in fact.

It’s very very easy to knit. The pattern is Favorite Scarf Ever except that I didn’t do that part where you knit two equal lengths and then graft them together. I’m lazy and I just started and one end and kept going until I ran out of yarn. I don’t care that the ends don’t match.

It’s very very colorful. Lots of reds and golds and oranges and blues. It reminds me of chrysanthemums.

It’s very very soft. That cashmere is good stuff, I can tell you that. And wrapping this thing around my neck a gazillion times is going to feel so good. I’m in no hurry, though, and I’ll be happy to wait months and months before it’s cold enough to need it.

    VERY gorgeous! Projects like your scarf seem rather tedious as you’re knitting . . . but are SO (very) WORTH IT when you’re finished!

    Those colors are amazing, and I can imagine how soft that cashmere will feel! Definitely no rush to wrap that baby around your neck.

    Matching ends are overrated. An easy to knit project you carry around, and always have at the ready, is a good friend to have along. There is no time limit or race, but in the end, you win!

    Very good post and Smooshy is a very good yarn. i spent a few very good days at a mountain lodge with limited phone service and no internet–wish you’d been there for photo documentation!

    P.S. very lovely scarf!

    What a gorgeous scarf! Looks very cozy and will be nice when those cold days come round again…but not anytime soon!

    I now feel like I have “permission” to stop weighing my yarn and just keep on truckin’… :-) I’ve done the same thing on many a 2-part pattern. Grafting is for the birds!!!!!

    Beautiful. I love all the colors — nice variation and depth, and they play nicely together.
