Day 132 and Fettucini

Bah. Blogger was doing some sort of maintenance so I wasn't able to post yesterday. I'm still backdating this since I did finish this scarf for this day and have another for the ACTUAL today.

The yarn I was using strongly reminded me of the noodles made with pureed spinach. The stitch pattern I worked out mimicked it even further!

Spinach Fettucini

2 balls Berroco Suede
Size 9 needles
Tapestry needle

Gauge is not important as long as the stitches are clear and not elongated from being too loose.

wyif = With Yarn in Front
slip = do not twist the stitch. Simply transfer from one needle to the other without changing the orientation.

CO 26.
Rows 1-4: Slip 1 wyif, Knit across.
Row 5: Slip 1 wyif, *k2tog, k2tog, (YO, K1) 4 times, K2tog, K2tog* repeat once more. K1.
Row 6 and 7: Slip 1 wyif, K across.
Row 8: Slip 1 wyif, P across to last stitch. Knit the last stitch.
Repeat rows 5-8 until the scarf is the desired length or until only 4 yards are left on the second ball ending with row 6. My scarf only used about half the second ball.
Final rows as follows:
Skipping rows 7 and 8, complete row 5 once more.
Complete rows 1-3 once more.
Bind off loosely in knit stitch and sew in loose ends.
