knitting on the road

knitting on the road, originally uploaded by homebirthmama.

Elise's purple sweater is almost finished!! I just need to add the buttons! With the leftover skein, I decided to make her a coordinating scarf to wear with it ~ made an easy road trip project.

size 6 needles; rowan cashsoft
the pattern:
cast on 30 stitches
knit 1 row
*slip 1 purlwise, purl one, knit to the end*
continue * to * until desired length
bind off.

slipping the 1st stitch and purling the 2nd stitch on each row makes the rows neater and give the scarf a nice edge.
