Knitting for Dummies is the book i turned to when i wanted to understand some of the Elizabeth Zimmerman writing on knitting….in it is a scarf i fell in love with…simple, yet it has some lace fagotting panels that give  it some interest.


I am knitting it in fingring weight wool from Knitpicks, 2 different colors held together….on #9 needles.

Here is a couple of inches of the scarf….




I have it stretched to show the fagotting and what it looks like, i really like the little purl bead that runs up the panel…..

the fagotting is just a simple yo,p2tog with 4 knit stitches(or purl on the wrong side) in between…I highly recommend this  book for anyone who wants to have fun knitting some fun things while learning the basics.
