Hope you all have a lovely weekend!
I wanted to know how to knit since a long time but only last month I decided to buy knitting kits and learning how to knit.
Also, I bought knitting magazine in August and read some techniques but I was confused. Then I went to YouTube to watch some lessons and so happy that I got it :)
As I am a beginner knitter, I just want to try something simple and suitable for my level. So, I knit an infinity scarf. I didn't follow any pattern but just knit in circular needle and here is the result,
I did my first exercise Garter Stitch in the two balls of very cheap wool yarns that I bought in my local Japanese shop, followed easy video tutorial from Studio Knit. And here is my result,
After I did Garter Stitch, I am curious about Stockinette Stitch, they look so nice for scarf but I had a problem that they were curling during the process. Then I found another tip that I should stitch borders around them to avoid curling.
I did Garter Stitch border in the top, below and both sides of the Stockinette Stitch. I used my pure new wool from stash and followed video tutorial from Studio Knit. Here is my result,
Well, let's talk about the infinity scarf now. I used Stockinette Stitch in circular needle, so have to be working with Knit Stitch all round.
First thing I did was slip knot following by long tail cast-on, then joining the round. After that, I knit all round and finished with bind-off.
For joining the round I followed the video tutorial from Studio Knit. And here is my first joining round,
Material for the infinity scarf:
Pure New Wool in orange colour (50 gr/95 yards), I used two balls
Circular Needle size 6 mm/80 cm
After all, the final size of my scarf is 80 cm in total circle with 12 cm width. In the end of the knitting process, I have to iron it because it looks a little curling in both sides. Here is the final scarf,
And here is how it looks when I hang in the hanger,
I love my new scarf even it didn't turned out perfectly, I can see big holes in the cast-on and bind-off but anyway... I am sure I will be wearing it in the coming winter :)
Well, I am now working in another infinity scarf. I use smaller size needle and shorter length. I also use different stitch. But it will be taking longer time to finish.
Also, I am linking this post to Carolyn for Show Off Saturday
See you soon in another creativity :)
