A knitting game, you ask? Is such a thing possible? Yes! I say. This game evolved from a challenge I was given in my knitting class to knit a “random” scarf- we had to select a bunch of varying yarns in colors we liked and work them in knit and purl rows to form a scarf. It was to be an exercise in the textures you can achieve with those two little stitches.

Ahem. I can’t do “random”. I decided to come up with a way to be as “random” as possible, while still having a small amount of control…and the Knitting Game was born.

This pattern is also available in the 2006 Knitting Pattern-A-Day calendar and has been published in an assortment of guild newsletters and be used to run knitting classes/workshops. Future newsletter/class/workshop permissions are granted provided the pattern copies are purchased through me and all credit is given to me as the creator/designer.
