Welcome to our little bit of knitterly Heaven- I'm so glad you found your way here!
Our goal is to teach beginning knitters some tricks of the trade as well as to work enough swatches to have a finished afghan by the end of the year! Join along with us as we learn about patterns, cables, lace, and some other handy techniques! A new pattern will become available each month ranging from newbie to adventurous. So stop on by, pick your pattern and knit along with us!

All patterns can be found here as well as on Ravelry.com!

Fragments Clue 9

Hello Knitters and welcome back!  I hope you had a nice and relaxing weekend.

So, what do you think so far- not too bad, eh?  We've officially made it through the first half of our KAL and today we are starting the second half!

I've heard that some of you had problems getting going with the first clue- throwing lace at you right off the bat was a bit intimidating.  Well, I've got some great news!  You'll get some more practice with it!  Yup that's right, we are going to be casting on the second half of the scarf and repeating Clue 1 again!  YEA (don't groan- celebrate it!)!

Since our scarf is knit in two halves, we will be joining it in the middle by grafting the two pieces together.  Don't worry, I'll walk you through the process and you'll have learned something new :)

So, on to the knitting!

Cast on 49 stitches using your most comfortable cast on (I prefer either the long tail or knitted cast on- a photo tutorial for both can be found here).

Row 1: Purl all stitches
Row 2: K3 *yo, K2, ssk, k2tog, K2, yo, K1* repeat from * across to last stitch K1
Row 3: Purl all stitches
Row 4: K2 * yo, K2, ssk, k2tog, K2, yo, K1* repeat from * across to last two stitches K2

Knit these 4 pattern rows for a total of 5 times.

Knit 3 rows. During the final row, k2tog once near the middle of the row (exact placement is not important) in preparation for the next clue.  You should now have 48 stitches.

See ya tomorrow, and remember- have fun!


  1. Just when I was caught up & now have to do that pattern again. How many starts this time I wonder?


  2. Much better the second time around!! Only had to undo the 2nd row once!! Then smooth sailing.
