Potato Chip Scarf



Last Sunday I met my friend Dogwood for lunch, and while we waited for our table at the Cheesecake Factory she taught me how to make this highly addictive (and easy peasy) scarf.

Apparently this scarf goes by many names. I like "Potato Chip Scarf" best, probably because I like potato chips in general.  The pattern can be found at the blog Free Motion.

I'm knitting it with a skein of hand painted silk I bought at Stitches last year that I am absolutely in love with. At one point I had buyer's remorse for purchasing yet another single skein of yarn just because it was pretty, but now I'm so glad I splurged.

 Thank you, Dogwood, for teaching me this pattern!

Isn't silk lovely? The colors and the sheen make for a really pretty scarf in particular. I'll bet you will get serious compliments for wearing that beauty around!

Great job. I love the colors of the yarn. It is the most fun scarf to knit. Right now I have two in process. Have fun. Hugs, Dogwood
