Today I was reading The Yarnery blog and I see this cool scarf.
As I stared at it, I realized that it appears to be knit the long way across. As in, not many rows, but each row is three feet long!
That got me thinking a number of thoughts, such as…
- What do you knit it on? What can hold that many stitches.
- Would an alternating knit, purl pattern like that over such a long distance keep the scarf from curling?
- Would it make my mohair/wool yarn behave?
But mostly, I wanted to know how to knit that many stitches across. If you know how it is done, please tell me. I wish the Yarnery sold that pattern at their new online store; I’d buy it to solve this mystery.
