Pooling Lace Ribbon Scarf

This is my third Lace Ribbon Scarf. You can see the second one here and the first one here. Next time I knit a scarf I can promise I will use a different pattern.

Pattern: Lace Ribbon Scarf by Veronik Avery. Available free from Knitty.
Yarn: 2 skeins of Lorna’s Laces Shepherd Sock in Icehouse
Needles: US #4 (3.5 mm) Addi Turbo circular
Notes: I still think this is a great pattern. I wear my other two scarves a lot, simply to dress up a pair of jeans and a t-shirt.

I used as much of the 2 skeins as I could. 35 yards left over (I didn’t think I could get another full repeat done at that point) which means I used 395 yards.

I learned everything I know from Wenat’s blog posts and posts in the Pooled Knits forum on Ravelry. This is what I did…

Lace Ribbon Pattern mods: K3, 4 repeats of the red chart, the 4 stitches that are outside of the chart, K3.

Of course, your yarn choice may force you up or down a few stitches from how I knit the pattern. The hardest part was figuring out how many stitches fit within the color repeat. For that, if you lay out the yarn in a circle the way many of Wenat’s photos show, then note (or even tie a stitch marker) into the the center of the far left and far right colors where you’ll be switching from the right to the wrong side of your knitting. From the marked spot, I did backwards loop cast on to get a rough stitch count, then I knit a few rows in garter to see if it was accurate. I had to adjust up a couple of stitches. Once I figured this out I tore it all back out and did a long tail cast on, but that’s really just because I don’t like backwards loop to start.
