In our area, the predominant color in autumn is golden yellow - the red and orange leaves are more of accents. So when the sun comes out, everything glows!
Last summer I found a yarn that so reminded me of Northwest autumns that I had to stash some away for a fall project. If you've never knitted with Pashmina before, it's a wonderfully soft yarn made from merino, silk, and cashmere. This scarf uses a stitch I found while searching through patterns from the 1950's. I haven't been able to find a name for it - but it's super easy and makes a good project for those times when you don't want to be paying full attention to your knitting.
*1 skein Madelinetosh Pashmina in Candlewick
*size 5 needles
Cast on 46 stitches.
Row 1: This is a k1, p1 rib all the way across. *k1, p1* repeat to end of row.
Row 2: Repeat row 1
Rows 3 and 4: Knit to end of the row.
Repeat these four rows until the scarf is the length you want it to be. End with Row 2 and then bind off.
Happy Creating! Deborah
