Notes

Mods: I slipped the first stitch of each row, purlwise with yarn in front. I made the increases, therefore, in the second stitch. Since I was already used to increasing at the beginning of the fourth row of the repeat, for the decreases I worked an ssk over the 2nd and 3rd stitches of the fourth row, instead of k2tog at the end of the row.

It can be annoying trying to remember if you need to do an increase row next, and I finally figured out how to see the kfb! From the wrong side, the increase looks like a little V. I circled one in the close-up photo. So from the wrong side, you should see a plain-old garter ridge alternating with a ridge that has a V. (Note that I’m slipping the first stitch of every row, so this photo shows the increase as worked in the second stitch.)

I couldn’t figure out a clear way to see an ssk in garter stitch. :(

14 April 2012: Cast on for the Urban Yarns Jane Richmond knit-along. There are so many of her designs I’d love to make, but this one is so simple so it wins. Plus, I’ve had this yarn for two years and it’ll be delicious in this scarf. The tag on my skein must be mislabeled, because it says “DK”, but this is for sure fingering weight. I like a little danger, so we’ll see how it goes. The colour’s greener than it looks in my first crappy photo.

I’m slipping the first stitch of each row as if to purl with yarn in front, so I’m doing the increases in the second stitch.
