A broken rib stitch scarf

Made for Mr R's birthday in January and still being worn today as it is oh so snug. And we have snow. I cast on for the width of scarf Mr R requested and then happily spent many hours knitting. Broken rib is so simple and so perfect for knitting while watching the television.

Mr R chose his wool... Debbie Bliss Paloma in Camel. A beautifully soft alpaca and merino blend, knit on 10mm needles so satisfyingly quick. It did take a few balls though to get the length of scarf required, so not a cheap scarf. Happily this scarf keeps on growing (sounds nicer than stretching-think it must be the weight) and is taking on Dr Who-like dimensions...

More birthday makes soon!
