and I have started knitting already.
You start with 3 stitches, and add one each end inside the first and last stitch, until you have as many as you want. I stopped at 35. Every row is knitted, and every second row has no shaping. Then you start to add one stitch at the beginning of the row and decrease one at the end, by knitting together the 2nd and 3rd last stitches. Again, knit only every second row. When you get the scarf as long as you want, you kind of do the reverse, and make it smaller by decreasing at the ends of the needles until 3 are left.
It is turning into a very long scarf, but I can see this wrapped several times around my neck this coming winter, and it is not too fluffy or itchy to wear.
Have to get it finished soon so I can get back to my applique. I need a break from time to time.
