Brought to you by the number 3

Three scarves, knit for charity (specifically for the scarves for the homeless drive at my church)

Pattern: Multi-directional diagonal scarf. Each scarf is made of short-row polygons with 3 sides (also known as triangles).

Each scarf was made of 3 skeins of Patons Soy Wool Stripes.

Natural Denim:

Natural Plum:

Natural Blue (which has a surprising amount of brown in it):

The yarn is very soft in the skein, and knits up nicely, although it's not quite so soft as garter stitch. The main virtue of this yarn is, I think, that it's inexpensive. It cost wonderfully little money. Unfortunately, the was one drawback: knots. In 9 skeins, there were 7 knots. But for an inexpensive yarn, it's really quite charming - soft, warm, and with much less raw vegetable matter than Lopi.

This post is made possible in part by yarn, blogger, and readers like you.

333, only half as evil.

Love the SS reference there at the end, very classy.

Can you point me towards a pattern for this? I have some sari silk that I want to do this with. Saw the pattern a few years ago and never found it again. Mind you, I'm a total novice who tends to make felted things because felting absolves all sins.
