How exactly does one fail at making a scarf? It’s just a long, skinny rectangle! Well I can tell you it takes hours and hours of weaving and by the time I knew it had gone horribly wrong I was too stubborn to quit.
The knitted strip I shared on Friday became this:I dropped two stitches and made the “runs” in the knitting. Next I decided to weave yarn into the “runs”, a rainbow of yarn! Weaving the yarn took FOREVER. About half way through the weaving I began to have doubts that the scarf would turn out like I planned, but I kept going I had already invested way too much time in this one and I was going to make it work!
Um yeah, when I finished the last piece of yarn I had a wavy mess, so I thought I’ll just need to adjust/tighten the strings. I started pulling, one at a time, I only broke a few……so I only tightened one half and then braided the ends together? I don’t know where I was going with this, but I couldn’t stop, I had to finish this. Once it was finished I promptly announced (to my husband) that it was the ugliest thing I had ever made and we started trying to figure out what to do with it. There was a lot of snickering and weirdness and we came up with this: It’s a headdress like Queen Amidala (cough, Star Wars, cough) would wear. I think I might keep this handy by the front door, you never know when you’re going to need a crazy hat to pop on when uninvited company drops by. Do let me know if you’d still like the pattern :)
