Ride on a Train
Ride on a Train has been designed to show off hand spun yarn or an amazing skein of hand dyed yarn to the fullest. The design is fully reversible and can be knit to any length desired. It is knit sideways using garter stitch, a reversible over-the-edge cable pattern and short row shaping to create a large crescent shaped scarf/shawl.
The easily memorized pattern makes this knit an ideal trip knit. It is a completely reversible, no-fuss piece that can be made as long as desired. The green/grey/white sample is made from handspun yarn and is approximately 90” long and 14” deep at the deepest point and has 50 increase repeats. The pink/green/brown sample is made from commercially spun yarn and is approximately 72” long and 12” deep and has 43 increase repeats.
