Knitting Project

The last time I tried to knit was in high school or maybe junior high, anyway it was a long time ago!
I have this hankering to knit some socks, but I need some practice in knitting first, so this is my first 'real' knitting project, a winter scarf for dh.
The pattern is a basket weave it's pretty basic:

I'm using a size 8 needles.

co, 26 sts

rows 1-4 knit

after knitting the first four rows this is the basket weave pattern:

( 1) k3, k5, p5, k5, p5, k3
do this for 10 rows


(2) k3, p5, k5, p5, k5, k3
do this for 10 rows then go back to to (1) and repeat till you get the length you want for the scarf.

remember to add four rows of knitting at the bottom, the three k3 at the beginning and end of the rows are boarders as are the four rows of knit at the top and bottom of the scarf.

finish with bo.


c0=cast on




bo=bind off (which I haven't come to yet, and when I do I'll have to learn how, lol)


  1. ohhh I haven't knitted for yonks! How strange I'm using that same pattern as 'bricks' on my embroidery 'castle' that will form one of the four re-inforces for a tallit hagadol...

  2. Oh please post a pic of it when your finished, I would love to see it, sound beautiful!!

  3. I can't knit to save my life!! But i love crochet. I wish you lived near me so you can show me. :(
