This Post Has No Title

Knit Picks has put up the scarf pattern I wrote using their Suri Dream yarn. These scarves are seriously easy to knit and cheap, too! One ball of yarn makes one scarf. At $4.00 a ball, that's cheap by anyone's standards. If you click on the photo, it brings you to the Knit Picks site.

The scarf uses a provisional cast on and it's a good project to learn the cast on because you start with very few stitches. My favorite type of provisional cast on is the method in which you work a crochet chain around the knitting needle. There are excellent instructions on how to work this cast on here and here. The beauty is that when you're ready to release the live stitches, you can simply pull on the end of the crochet chain and it unravels easily.
