Unravel Last 5 Stitches?


These words strike fear in my knitter’s heart, “Unravel last 5 stitches”.

Fifty-one inches of lovely Saxon Braid are finished and ready for “unraveling” and I’m biting my nails in anticipation. I wonder just how many days will pass before I summon up enough courage to unravel!

This is my Mom’s Christmas scarf. It is the scarf that is on the cover of Nicky Epstein’s book called, Knitting on the Edge. Soon it will have long lovely loop fringe along the edge of it. My greatest fear is that I will start unraveling and the whole scarf will come unraveled. Or, that the unraveling will work until I get to the one row where I forgot to K1 tbl. Oh my!

The scarf took much longer to knit than I thought it would. The yarn is a yummy Debbie Bliss Cashmerino Chunky Aran. It is so very, very soft! And, who can resist RED?

Hopefully, I will be posting a successful “aftershot” photo in a few days.

Keeping my fingers crossed……………….

  1. I love that scarf and have been meaning to do it for quite a while now. So, go on, unravel it 😉 I want to see whether “it” works!

  2. I can’t wait to see it unraveled. Yours is even prettier than the one on the cover – I love the red! Let her rip…..

  3. sending good knitting vibes your way… I intend to make lots of mistakes to lure the knitting demons away from you until the scarf is successfully unraveled.

  4. It’s beautiful! Red is my favorite color, too. Good luck with the unraveling.

  5. You’ll do fine. You are such an accomplished knitter, you don’t even need luck. (But I am crossing my fingers and sending it your way!)

  6. Oh my, I would be petrified to unravel such a beautiful scarf. Good luck! Thinking Happy Thoughts!
