Warm Eternity Scarf - My latest knitting adventure.

This is what happens when I want to keep my hands busy and not eat too much over the weekend:

Eternity  Scarf in Malabrigo Pearl Ten

The ribbing  used is called the the cartridge stitch according to the pattern. The cartridge rib is worked vertically, then horizontally, then it's just straight stockinette stitch for the rest of the scarf. Because stockinette rolls if you don't do something to the bind off edge, the roll adds even more texture to this design. Super easy, relatively quick and very awesome.

Incidentally, you could always cast on fewer stitches and get a cowl instead of an Eternity scarf. I may try this next. I do think the horizontal cartridge rib stitch would make a truly awesome texture of sweater, but very cumbersome. I may have to try it at some point!
