This was knitted using the pattern for the Two Toned Column Scarf, from KnitPicks. Other than my choice of yarns and the fringe I followed the pattern exactly as written, except that I slipped the last stitch of each row. I like it well enough but I was not altogether pleased with the edges. The CC is very obvious on one side.
I was told that when doing a mosaic stitch the CC must be knitted to the edges to secure it. That leaves a line of CC stitches that looks a bit sloppy, to me. There are three MC stitches on either edge in a twisted stitch mock cable.
I have two requests to make scraves in this pattern for gifts. Next time I will play around with the pattern from the get-go to see if I can contain the contrast color from the edges. I'm wondering if that can be done without creating holes or causing other problems?
Any suggestions on how I could accomplish that would be welcome. I'm still rather new at this.
