Skinny Scarf knitted with Oh My
Yarn: 'Oh My' by Plymouth Yarns, 1 ball of each color
Needles: Size 10-1/2
Stitch: The woven stitch
I love the woven stitch and I like the idea of a skinny scarf with lengthwise stripes. I cast on 400 stitches and began experimenting with the 4 colors I chose. If I do it again I will probably go to 500 stitches to make the scarf even longer. I was concerned about the bind off making a tight edge. I started bind off in pattern with a size 13 needle. I noticed it still tended to create a curve in the scarf, so I went up to a size 15 needle for bind off and that seemed to solve the problem. The attraction to the Oh My for me was the lovely texture and the colors. It is a nylon yarn that is constructed out of a chain - like a crocheted chain - and so I had to be very careful about splitting the yarn because if the threads break they will unravel. I used Denise needles but my LYS recommended bamboo needles for this yarn. It was a fun project because I loved touching the yarn and I enjoyed watching the pattern made by the woven stitch.
