Knitting Mama's Chevron Update
I've been working today on my Chevron Scarf. I've completed 33 pattern repeats. I've got about 19 inches knit so far, and only about 10g per color used up. I've calculated this out. The pattern says it's approx. a 77 and a half inch scarf. 19 inches gets me 10 grams used. The skeins are 150 gram (mediumweight). So I figured it out, and I need approx about 40 grams each per color more. If I make the size that is in the pattern. Which means I should have about or around 100 grams left of each color when the scarf is done. I'm thinking there may be enough for a pair of socks with the Rhodonite (since no one was able to locate me a skein, and I refuse to pay 22$US to ship 1 x 19$ skein to Canada). I may have to do the heel in another colorway (which is fine by me), but I think I have enough for socks!!! This makes me happy. I think I may even try them toe up! (This way I'm guaranteed to know how long I can make the leg part). Anyhow, we'll see how much the Chevron Scarf uses. I might just have enough leftovers! Because I'm in love with the Rhodonite colorway!
