Day 284 and Rachet
This is yet another way to make less yardage into something more. Interestingly, this scarf is really only half as wide as it appears. I cast on 20 stitches and worked for about 7 rows, then bound off 10 and finished the row. On the following row, I cast on 10 at the end.
So even though the scarf was 20 stitches wide, it can be a lot shorter as far as rows go and be a lot longer when draped. The big cast off areas cause the fabric to stretch and angle out for the length. Interesting!~!
Bonus: The big gaps fit together like cogs so a short scarf hooks onto it self and doesn't fall off.
