jasmine scarf

knit with mini-mochi strawberry-lime rainbow. lace stitch matches the fingerless mitt. if you don't mind a shorter scarf ( i calculated that you can make a scarf about 40" in length from one skein), then you can make a nice gift set of the scarf and the fingerless mitts from 2 skeins.

here is the cast-on edge, using a cute picot cast-on and garter stitch border
(i like the slight ruffle effect of the edge so would probably only lightly block the finished scarf)

this is the bind-off edge with a matching picot bind-off
(i think the two ends match very well)

and just for fun, i am showing a picture of my entire "scarf"
i used a us 5 and will have to knit a stockinette swatch to see what gauge is.
i like the fabric i got for the scarf.

edited to add gauge:
us 5 needles in stockinette (not washed or blocked)
6 sts - 8 rows/inch

it's not blocked yet. i am going to see what water does to this gorgeous yarn later today.

is that funny or what? it's about 6 inches long and weighs 7 gms. i can't wait until i have time to knit a real set for me out of neptune rainbow!

i am naming the set "jasmine". thank you, cait!

i have been trying to be good and stay away from this yarn. i have been working on my brother's sock. one done, and the other almost down to the heel flap...slowly, very slowly.

Oh, she'll be thrilled to know you took her suggestion.

And of course, you know when Crystal Palace releases the yarn, I'll have to knit her the entire set!
