I'll be back.

Hello old and new friends. My blog has been inactive but I am still around. I loom-knit (and weave now, too!) but I seem to take more photos of my toddler than my crafts these days. She has that cute factor going for her. Because of this, I have started a tumblr called Tiny Taughts of our home lessons, crafts and projects. Please visit me there and I promise to come back here soon!

Mossy Scarf

Are you ready to think green but the weather is still wintery? I loom-knit up this simple scarf in silky soft Frog Tree chunky alpaca. (Feeling déjá vu? I'm pulling this pattern from my previous blog post to make it easier for knitters to find.)

I love moss-stitch bumpies. Seed and moss stitches seem to have different definitions throughout the knitty world. I follow those who say seed is knitting your purls and purling your knits on each row. Moss is just doubling this. Here is my free Mossy Scarf pattern with a garter border (S=slip stitch, K=knit, P=purl):

Moss scarf WIP

Repeat above until you reach desired length. My scarf is about 6 feet long because I wanted to use all the yarn.

End with 8 rows of garter stitch.
Yarn-over bindoff for an edge that most closely matches the stretchy crochet cast-on.
