I had a good bit of alpaca yarn leftover from the fingerless mitts, so I decided to make the Twisted Spiral Neckscarf from One Skein Wonders. After struggling with the directions, and ripping out the beginning three times, I finally understood what the heck (hide wrap,K1) three times really meant, so the fourth time was the charm. Note to others trying this pattern: you really do go all the way to the other side of the knitting every fourth row. Now I’m really good at short rows, and also know what hide wrap means. Who says knitting’s not educational?
