Hourglass Special

Hi Knitters,
I finished up the hourglass scarf and I love it. What a fun project. This is actually the first knitalong I've ever joined but how could I resist?Koigu Kerstie is such a treat to knit, squishy, yummy yarn. I made a few modifications from the original pattern. I made mine a bit wider and I shortened the length between the hourglass shaping. I also made mine quite a bit longer than suggested. That's the good thing about making your own scarf. You can make it however wide and long you'd like. This was a quick, quick and fun knit.

Yay scarf knitting!
best, susan b anderson

Susan, thanks for joining the knitalong. Love seeing your version of hourglass. Seems if the rib between shaping was shortened enough, the scarf might look like a series of circles ...maybe.
Everyone should check out Susan's blog to see her books and patterns (some free). They are such creatively, cute knits for little ones.

Looks great! Although I want to knit many of the scarves in the book, this cover one didn't appeal. Your modifications and color choices have made the wheels start to churn -- but I must cast-on Cocoons first.

I really admire your Hourglass scarf, but I am a little confused about how to add the contrast color in the slip stitch section. i've reread the directions many times and I don't see how to get color A in the mix so you can slip it. Otherwise I would love to knit this.
