Day 102 and the Spring Ascot
I'm not even sure if I have the terminology right. In my mind an ascot is a short scarf that is held around the neck by tying a loose knot. I'm of course picturing Freddy and Daphne from Scooby Doo here. They probably had solid polyester scarves made of fabric rather than knits, but I'm thinking this knit would probably have been why more comfortable for either of them.
This yarn is definitely out of production, but any thin tape yarn in cotton or cotton/linen blend would give the same effect.
1 ball Primavera by Giovanni
Size 15 needles
Gauge is not important, but keep your stitches loose to make the P3tog's easy.
Cast on 21
Row 1: K1, *YO, P3tog, YO, K1* Repeat to the end.
Row 2: P2tog, *YO, K1, YO, P3tog* Repeat to last 5 sts, YO, K1, YO, P2tog.
Repeat these 2 rows until you have only 2 yards of yarn left. It doesn't matter which row you end on.
