Knit-Along: Sampler Scarf from It's A Stitch--part 5

Section 5: The Twin Leaf Pattern

The finish line. Since we’ve been decreasing with every pattern switch, it’s even going a bit faster. Of course, there is the old second sock syndrome looming—after I finish this, I’m only half finished, because I’ve got to do the other half. There’s a smug satisfaction in that, however, because I’m on my second time around and I’ll learn from all my earlier mistakes, right? Say yes, I’m holding the pointy sticks….

Knit-Along: Sampler Scarf from It's A Stitch--part 5 1It’s hard to see these leaves emerge until the last rows of the pattern. I double-checked my work a couple of times, sure I must have goofed up somewhere. Nope, it’s just a bit hidden until you get all the way through. But when I slid these stitches on a holder signifying my completion, I felt a sense of real triumph. Ha! I have mastered five patterns! Fear me!

Well, fear me after I follow through and do the other half. Like most knitters, I love to start things—it’s the finishing that always does me in.
