I finished my Saroyan scarf last week.
This was such a fun pattern to knit
it was so neat to watch each leaf form.
Details of this project:
Needle - US size 7 (4.5 mm)
Yarn - Morning Moon alpaca
Amount of yarn - about 1 1/2 skeins ***
Pattern - Saroyan
Size made - 7 increases - 12 straights - 7 decreases
Would I knit this again? YES! The new Saroyan pattern came out this week and I can't wait to try it. There are leaves on both sides of the scarf!
Things I learned with this pattern -
1. Do not cut yarn until you are 100% sure you are done with the pattern
2. I love alpaca
3. I don't have enough t-pins (this has been resolved!!)
4. When I knit this again do only increases/decrease to make a triangle.
5. Listen to Amy and take her suggestions.
*** I did not measure my skeins before starting to knit. Ravelry has 190 yards per skein, Morning Moon's signs at the booth listed the skeins as 200 yards, and a friend measured hers and only had around 183 yards. Since I didn't measure I don't know exactly how much I used. I have around 90 yards left out of 2 skeins.
