Hello, my fellow knitters. I am starting an ongoing project. I will be recording a daily sky in my approximately 72" long Scarf. Every day, I will be posting my progress on THIS particular page. If you would like to join me in this knit-along project then save this page and return to it for day-by-day short narratives updates, including images, charts, links to other pages, and videos of this pattern. (I would like to do a live recording too, but I need to learn how to set up my computer. So, that idea is still in the air. Not sure if that will happen though. But it would be nice, right?)
Please, note that the scarf will be knitted length-wise because I would like to use each "new daily yarn strand" for a fringe - that way I do not have to weave in the tails. Smart idea, right?
Today, I will share with you:
- some charts (see below)
- a link to the "cable" pattern I will be using for this scarf (CLICK HERE)
- and what materials I will be using
FIRST VIDEO ("Introduction to this project") IS COMING SOON...
|Keep track of your yarn (next to each sky image), date and what # of daily sky (in the empty rectangles)|
In the image below I am showing how I calculated my Stitches for the scarf. I will make either two to three (and possibly even four) 20-row repeats - I am not sure just yet.
- In a first step, I figured out total stitches I will need for 72" long scarf (I like them long). If there are ~20 stitches in 4", then in 72" there are 360 sts (if you want shorter scarf, you need to figure out how many stitches will fit into your inches, then you will have to figure out how many repeats will fit into your total stitches)
- My pattern calls for 16-stitch repeats, I figured that I will need about 21 repeats + extra stitches for each to get as close to 360 sts. With 21 repeats of 16-stitch pattern plus 10 sts for both
|This chart will help you figure out stitches for the length of your scarf|

PLEASE, COMMENT ON YOUTUBE BELOW MY VIDEOS, AND/OR SHARE YOUR IMAGES OF YOUR RECREATED WORKS ON MY FB PAGE HERE :-)
Note: Most of the time I work as fast as I can to keep up with knitting and crocheting requests. I have to videotape, edit videos, then convert them & upload them to my channel. After that often I post on my blog patterns. I answer many questions, which means that often I work up to 16 hours a day. I would tremendously appreciate IF anyone of you who finds an error in the written pattern, so please, let me know - where (what rows) and what may be the problem. Many future knitters & crocheters from our artsy and crafty virtual world will thank you for your good deed, including myself.
