A few months ago, I was busy working away at this birthday scarf for my mom. She picked out the yarn back in September when she visited for a mother-daughter weekend. I found this interesting stitch pattern on Ravelry (the basic pattern is yarn over, knit two, slip the yarn over the two knit stitches).
Mom wore the scarf quite a bit when I visited her for Christmas and I think the pattern works well with the yarn. She’s very found of pink and I of purple, so this is a match made in heaven for the two of us.
