For a project that only took me around 4 days to knit, this one sure hung around awhile.
Pattern: Baby Alligator Scarf, from Morehouse Merino
Yarn: Kit yarn–merino 3 ply, maybe?
Time Elapsed:This took 4 days to knit, but it took me almost two months to make those 4 days happen.
Modifications/Notes: No modifications to this baby. And not many notes, either–it’s a clever but simple knit. And despite the toddler ennui in that first picture, Jacob adores it.
In fact, I had some trouble getting FO shots because he was so possessive of it. He wanted it nearby, at all times. He’s even sleeping with it!
The bumps in the middle are formed by increasing stitches over a few rows, binding them off, and just pulling the yarn tightly together on the next row. Very easy, very cute, but a little tedious. Hence the two months. This is the first project in years that I’ve procrastinated on like this. And for such a simple thing! I felt like a heel, so I’m glad it’s done.
There’s really not much to say about this one. Here are some FO shots, and have a lovely day!
