My latest sideways scarf was based on a scarf that I saw on someone's Ravelry projects. There was no pattern, but the scarf was a simple combination of garter rows and drop stitch rows, knit lengthways. The scarf I saw was done in Malabrigo and was so gorgeous I knew I had to make one of my own.
I used some left over Sweatermaker Sock Yarn, probably about 350m worth (two skeins' left-overs). I knit on a 4mm (6 US) and randomly added either garter rows or drop stitch rows. Some of the drop stitch rows were single wrap and some were double wrap. I also did a Russian join on this one - a new technique for me.
I am very pleased with the result, although it is a little long ... all part of the adventure :)
