Chartreuse Knits

Where a college student learns--and struggles with--the zen of knitting. It's the process, not the product, though the product is much more fun to wear!


Mitch's scarf, finally done. Now I just need to add the fringe and it shall be finished!
The way I did it:
I used size 10 1/2 needles
I used about half a skein each of Red Heart acrylic yarn in Burgundy and Gold.
It's 20 stitches across and twenty rows before switching color
There are 19 stripes: 10 burgundy, 9 gold
Instead of weaving in the ends where I switched color, I tied a tight knot, snipped, and then secured it with a bit of clear nail polish to keep the knot from slipping apart
