Notes

Very happy with this and a great, quick knit. It grew rather substantially in the blocking, making it long like I like, but also stretching out the knit stitches widthwise, so it looks like I knit quite a bit looser than I actually did. Perhaps that’s the silk content?

Mods made per notes I found in Rav on other projects knit in Malabrigo Silky Merino:

  • Went down to US 7 / 4.5 mm needles
  • CO 260 stitches
  • Did a total of 36 wraps (18 on each side)
  • Knitted 4 rows of stockinette instead of two after picking up all the wraps (which, this being my first project with short rows, I had a bit of difficulty with)

I had to join the third skein of yarn at the very end of the last row, just before starting the bind off. This scarf could be done in 2 skeins of Mal Silky at a gauge similar to mine if you did 250 stitches instead of 260, or only knit 2 rows of stockinette after picking up the wraps (as in the pattern).
