This is my first finished scarf for the Think Pink Challenge. The idea is to make knitted or crocheted scarves (pink of course) for October for Breast Cancer Awareness. I believe they are being given away at some point, but please don't quote me! Go to the website and join in the fun!
Anyway. I used the pattern here I think I used #10 needles, but I'm not entirely positive. (I really need to post these things closer to when I finish them!) I do know that I used some Caron Simply Soft, dark pink for most of the rows and then light pink for the last couple (outside) rows.
OK. this pattern ends up incredibly cute, and I like the end result a lot. However! after the first couple rows I wanted to hurt someone. The increase rows made my hands hurt and cramp up just because it was all so tight. And can you say 720 stitch bind-off row? I honestly had to force myself to do "just a little bit more" in order to finish the stinking thing.
But I do like the end result a lot. So I'm going to try a different spiral scarf pattern and see if I like it better. I think just doing a different kind of increase would make it not so miserable. We shall see!
And because it just has to be included:
That would be my co-worker Jeff. I had the finished scarf at work and he decided to model it (and his pop bottle) for me!
