Diamond Scarf

I mentioned earlier that I finished three projects in January. This scarf is one of them.

I started it in 2007 as a simple project to take on a Youth retreat. It went to Spring Heights -- our Conference retreat center -- two years in a row, so whenever I look at it, I am reminded of quiet times in the cabin. It's a great association to have with a scarf.

The pattern is simple. It's knit on the bias, with alternating blocks of garter and stockinette stitch. It's actually very close to an alpaca scarf I made a few years ago.

Project details:

Pattern: Diamond Scarf from Vogue Knitting Scarves. Easy to follow pattern, although this one is altered from the original. I think in the original pattern, the squares were 12 stitches by 20 rows, and this one is 10 stitches by 16 rows. The only tricky part is that you need to know how to do a knitted cast on, for which I found instructions online.
Yarn: Forest Green Cascade 200. I think I used more than one skien but less than two. It's hard to remember over 2 years.
Needles: I used a US size 7 lattern moon needle. Love the lantern moon needles!
