I made my mom this scarf from that pretty purple wool I showed off earlier. It was a Christmas present that I hope will keep her warm through the rest of our long northern winter.
this pattern, courtesy of Knittingonthenet's informative stitch library. It's called the "Little Pyramid" stitch.
It's a deceptively easy stitch, with just 3 variations of knitting and purling to remember. It looks fancy though, so it impresses people even though it's not that hard.
The name of the stitch combined with fleecy yarn just made me think of this song the whole time I was working on it.
Clue me in.
