Have you visited the Craft Hope shop?
In just one weekend, a community of artists came together and set up an Etsy shop to benefit Doctors Without Borders in the aid of Haiti. My own contribution to Craft Hope is this red scarf, which was stitched up this weekend for the Orphan Foundation Red Scarf Project.
The scarf was knitted first entirely in berry red, then striped at the other end with black and ending entirely in black to give an edgy two-colour look. The knit pattern is a textured rib. Pattern notes below and on Ravelry.
Measurements: 6″ (15cm) wide x 74″ (188cm) long
Gage: 12 rows x 11 st in pattern on 10mm needles
CO 15 stitches in main colour (red)
Row 1: *K1, P1, repeat from * until end
Row 2: Knit all stitches
Repeat rows 1 and 2 in MC until scarf measures 54″, then join the contrasting colour (black) and continue in pattern for 2 rows each colour. When the main colour runs out (approx after 5 stripes) continue the rest of the scarf in black until the scarf measures 74″ long (or desired length).
Bind off and weave in ends.
I hope this scraf brings a little LOVE and lots of HOPE to someone out there!
