Mistake Rib Scarf

I made a scarf for Dad a couple days ago but I think I'll rip it out and knit up a hat instead. 1) it's rather short and I don't have another skein of Lamb's Pride Bulky in black to make it longer. 2) I just made a neckwarmer for his birthday. 3) I have a dozen or so yards of LPB in orange which means I could make a black hat with a touch of orange and my Dad will wear anything black and orange, he's a devoted Oregon State U fan. (He wears an OSU watch with their mascot Benny the beaver on it, that kinda says it all.)

I took a photo before reclaiming the yarn because I like how mistake rib looks. It's so thick, cushy, and squishable. For this scarf I did mistake rib as K2P2 over a multiple of 4 + 1 (21 sts), ending each row with K1.

I should have shawl photos to post within the next day or two, I'm about 20% done with binding off mom's shawl (using the Icelandic bind-off, as described in Myrna Stahman's shawl book.)

i am so sad that you are frogging the scarf! that pattern is great. the mistake rib's definition shows so nicely with the lamb's pride bulky. it's too bad that you don't have another skein...
