At the moment, I have several projects going. The beanie from last week now fits a human-sized head. Eldest nephew's beanie's ears are in progress.
And I've started my sister-in-law's scarf.
I'm using thick yarn, so it should go quickly. But, I wasn't liking the pattern stitch...
There's nothing wrong, really. But it feels... I don't know. Off, somehow.
I don't like the drape, but that might be okay after it gets bigger. Maybe.
Then, the other day, while perusing Instagram, I was reminded of the star stitch. (It had been used on a beanie.)
I have tried to incorporate star stitch on three different projects over the last several months, but each time I've had to frog and use something different.
Why? Reasons. I tried it on a moebius scarf, but the color pooling was bad. I tried it on a scarf for me, but the yarn is so fine, it wasn't worth the effort.
Could it work for this project? Finally?
Well, take a look...
I started this on Friday, and I'm really kind of loving it. I left the other pattern unfrogged, just in case (I had two skeins of the yarn), but at this point there's no question which pattern stitch I'll continue.
The waffle stitch (in the first picture) will have to wait for a different project.
