Another Potato Chip Scarf



Another potato chip scarf for a Christmas present for my friend Jean. She's moving to upstate NY and will need it.  
Yarn: Araucania 100% wool, worsted weight, made in Chili

what did you do to vary the pattern? I like the fullness. livin up north makes it look warmer.

Crickett the first time I made one similar to this, I used the pattern from this link: http://www.knittingdaily.com/blogs/daily/archive/2011/03/14/free-pattern-the-helix-scarf.aspx It was called a Helix scarf but other people were calling it the potato chip scarf...maybe because you can't just make one :) The pattern called for a much thinner yarn, maybe finger weight. It was very narrow....so I changed it to worsted weight yarn to make it more substantial. I may have changed the number of stitches I cast on too. If I had the scarf, I'd tell you exactly how many I cast on...but most of these were made as gifts that I gave away.

I just checked my Ravelry account and I didn't attach a note to myself reminding me of how many stitches I cast on. But for sure that's the pattern on Knitting Daily because I remember the girl in the picture.
