Estonian Sampler Scarf 2017

Hey you! Yes, you! Happy New Year!

I’m about to start something really really fun, and I’m inviting you to come with me. Our fellow knitter, Toni, is having a Knit-A-Long in Ravelry. Estonian Sampler Scarf Knit-A-Long, to be precise.

If you don’t know what knit-a-long is then note, that it’s a super fun project where knitters all around the world will knit something specific together. Of course, there will be chattering about the yarn, showing off your accomplishments, and I believe there will be allowed to cry about the mistakes, and get some pity. Packaged deal ๐Ÿ™‚

What makes this project so awesome, is that there will be aย new stitch pattern every month from January to December. It’s like Christmas morning when you were 10, all over again. The thrill of anticipation, chills of excitement, and constant urge of checking under the tree (in our case, checking in to Ravelry).

Now, if you’re not in Ravelry, don’t worry. I’ll show you the secret door below. Right now, I want to give you few links, if I may ๐Ÿ™‚

First of all, if you would like to know, who is Toni, look hereย (her shawls are devine, by the way).

Also, check out her Ravelry Group Knitting In The Loft here.

Now, curios to find out more about theย Estonian Sampler Scarf 2017?

Before you click the link below – yes, it’s a paid venture, BUTย check the product description; you will find a surprise there. Now you can click ๐Ÿ™‚ :

    The Estonian Sampler Scarf 2017 I downloaded does not have the pattern, just intro notes. Since this is my first knit along – does the pattern come later.

    Also can we use a stretchy CO – rather than a bigger size needle or does it have to be the long tail method and bigger needle?

    Thank you for telling about the 2017knitloftestonianscarf I have join it and enjoy the challenge although i am struggling with the Nupp, so instead of doing it 7 times I am only doing it 5 times it’s a little easier and the nupps are a little smaller but still visible,is there a rule that is has to be 7 .

      Actually, no. It depends on how “fluffy” nupps you’re wanting to achieve. 7 is kind of basic, but I have gone up to 16 to get the extra show-off. Your 5 will work out beautifully, and it will show up as all the other nupps after you’ve blocked the scarf ๐Ÿ™‚

      As a new knitter, I’m struggling with not only the Nupps, but also working with such fine yarn. I have started this pattern over now at least 10-12 times. I finally switched to a bigger yarn and needle and finally made it to row 11. It doesn’t look as good/lacy as the fine yarn, but at least it gives me some good practice. This pattern is so beautiful and I’m really disappointed I can’t work with the finer yarn. These Nupps are hard.

        I’m sorry to say this, but secret lies in practice. You’ll just need to try and try and try – it is hard at first, but it will get easier, I promise ๐Ÿ™‚

      Once we take pictures and post them on our page, is there a way to view the progress of the others work on this scarf. Thanks

    Hi, I’m on the KAL, and it’s my first as well. I’ve been following your instructions, Mari-Liis, and when I work the nupps, I use a crochet hook to gather the sts, and then put it back on the rt hand needle. This hint is under Mari-Liis’ instructions, and has saved me from a lot of frustration. It’s also my first time with knitting beads, so it works fine to gather the sts with the crochet hook, and then draw the st thru with the bead attached. Thank you, Mari-Liis, your hints are spot on!

      I have also tried a crochet hook, but the nupps still look horrible. But, I’m still practicing and trying to make them look better.

        I think the willingness to practice more is all you need ๐Ÿ™‚ By the way, if you are using this true cobweb lace yarn, then your nupps will really show after you have blocked it – blocking will do miracles…

          Thanks. I think I’m a bit of a perfectionist and I really want this to look good. I will definitely kerp trying.
