Multidirectional Scarf - 2004
Pattern: Multidirectional Diagonal Scarf
Yarn: 1 skein Mountain Colors 4/8s Wool (250 yard skeins)
In early 2004, I learned how to make a multidirectional scarf -- it's a modular knitting pattern inspired by Iris Schreier's multidirectional triangle scarf. I used the Indian Corn colorway for my first multidirectional scarf and decided to keep it for myself since I frogged and reknit it so many times. I ended up happiest with a thin, long scarf (24 stitches prior to turning on Size 8 Addi Turbos). I'll definitely make another one as I love the 4/8s wool and it's a great 1-skein project. I'm eyeing the Juniper colorway for my next one but Elderberry is cool too.
It's interesting to me that after a solid year of knitting, I'm more choosy about my knitting projects. I'll often knit more than one of something I enjoy; frogging and starting over is not at all painful. It's often a relief! My packed schedule often demands that my projects be simple and portable. Obviously, there's no shortage of things I want to knit, but socks are the most intriguing small knitting project I'm doing and it's what I want to focus on for the next several months (and not just Socktober)!
