Misti Alpaca Worsted + Barbara Walker “ Arch and Leaf”

December 13, 2008 at 2:32 pm Leave a comment

By Special Request: “a texture patterned, soft, cream-colored scarf”

Misti Alpaca Worsted
colorway SFN 10, 2X 100g hanks
dimensions: 52” x 8.25

“Arch and Leaf” stitch from Barbara Walker Fourth Treasury

Not the best scarf stitch pattern, it curls (wrong side out) pretty insistently even after a good blocking.
If I did it over, I would knit it two arches wide (instead of three) and use a wider flat border such as K1P1, or seed stitch.

ERRATA for “Arch and Leaf” from  Barbara Walker Fourth Treasury:
row 5stitch 36 (counting from left edge of chart)
should be [RS: P1/WS: K1]
row 5:  stitches 19 and 33 (counting from the left edge of chart)
row 7stitches 18 and 36 (counting from the left edge of chart)
should be [RS: K1-b/WS: P1-b]
(These are the stitches above the YO and will create holes if not closed with a twisted stitch, see swatch below)

DD requested this scarf, we picked up the yarn at Beehive WoolShop in Victoria, B.C. last summer.

She wanted a textured pattern, so I handed her a pile of Barbara Walker Treasuries to choose from.

Never having been one to shy away from a swatch, I swatched up her favorites to choose from.
