Some things are just too easy to be true! But, not in this case!!! Grab yourself some colorway yarn and let it do the majority of the fancy work.
I used exactly 2 skeins of Knitting Fever Painted Desert which gave me the perfect halfway point.
Simplicity of stitches add another layer of ease. Yarn overs, Knit 2 together are the backbone of this pattern, especially in the open mesh border.
And blocking....never had one done so quick. The slipped stitch garter straight edge leaves an open pattern to weave wires in and out of. Anchor these and then pin out the points. DONE!!!! Pictures included in the pattern.
Shaping is all done on the left side of the middle stockinette area with Make 1 and K2tog. The curve can be easily changed by adjusting these stitches. Length...well I have to admit that at the end of 1 skein I started to reverse the shaping process and became a little (a lot) concerned I would run out of yarn the closer to the end I got. Sometimes trust in your figures, it worked out perfect. You can chose your own length or use the recommended pattern repeats.
Materials need for this project are: Fingering weight yarn, 875 yds. Size 4, 3.50 knitting needles 4 stitch markers
As with most scarves and wraps, different weight yarns can easily be substituted, just be aware the overall effect does change somewhat.
All my patterns are entirely in both row by row written instructions and charted to satisfy both types of knitters.
