An odd place to ply your craft.
Multi-tasking is defined as being actively engaged in several jobs concurrently, at the same time. Is this possible? Depends on what the tasks are. For me, walking and knitting enables me to multi-task! The yarn holder, gifted to me from my dear friend Marva, strapped over my shoulder is called a Yarnit. The pattern I’m working on must be an easy stitch pattern allowing me to knit while I walk. Have yarn, will walk and knit! The beauty of the freeMistake Rib scarf pattern provided by the Purl Bee Yarn Store is a very easy pattern because EVERY row is the same! Once the pattern is memorized, you’re good to go on your walk. And did you catch the title: Mistake Rib – forget perfection and enjoy the walk.
Knitting Needle: Size US 11 or 8 mm
Yarn Weight number 5: Bulky/Chunky (12-15 stitches for 4 inches)
Yardage: 300 yards of bulky/chunky weight yarn
GAUGE: 4.5 stitches per inch in rib pattern, slightly stretched
FINISHED MEASUREMENTS: 48-inches long by
approximately 8-inches wide
PATTERN NOTE: Mistake rib is a multiple of 4+3 stitches
Cast on 39 stitches.
All Rows: (K2, p2) repeat to last 3 stitches, end k2, p1.
Repeat this row. That’s it! Bind off in stitch pattern which means to knit the knit stitches and purl the purl stitches throughout the bind off row.
Finishing: Weave in ends. Wear on the cold days when a walk is still part of the daily plan.
