The Carrie Scarf

The Carrie Scarf is done! And, before the Closing Ceremonies at that. I'm very happy with how it turned out. It will make a great addition to my winter wardrobe. This scarf was inspired by the one worn by Carrie Bradshaw in the Sex and the City movie. (I hope to look much happier wearing it than she did however!)

The pattern is pretty straight forward. I'm posting it below in case anyone is interested in making one for themselves.

Yarn: Malabrigo Merino Wool, approximately 3 skeins

CO – cast on
SS – seed stitch
BO – bind off
P – purl
K - knit

Cast on 62 stitches and work in seed stitch for 1 inch. Finish on wrong side.

Cable row: Work first 9 stitches in SS. Put 4 stitches on cable needle and knit four stitches. Knit the four stitches on cable needle. Work 10 stitches in SS. Cable the next 8 stitches. Work 10 stitches in SS. Cable the next 8 stitches. Work 9 remaining stitches in SS.

Regular rows: For next row, work 9 stitches in SS, P 8, SS 10, P 8, SS 10, P 8 and SS 9. For the following row, do same except knit the purls. Continue this pattern for 9 additional rows (11 rows total).

Follow the directions for cable row.

Follow the directions for regular rows.

Continue with pattern until scarf is close to desired length.

Work in seed stitch for 1 inch. BO and enjoy your new cabled scarf!

Generic Viagra (sildenafil citrate; brand names include: Aphrodil / Edegra / Erasmo / Penegra / Revatio / Supra / Zwagra) is an effective treatment for erectile dysfunction regardless of the cause or duration of the problem or the age of the patient.
Sildenafil Citrate is the active ingredient used to treat erectile dysfunction (impotence) in men. It can help men who have erectile dysfunction get and sustain an erection when they are sexually excited.
Generic Viagra is manufactured in accordance with World Health Organization standards and guidelines (WHO-GMP). Also you can find on our sites.
Generic Viagra is made with thorough reverse engineering for the sildenafil citrate molecule - a totally different process of making sildenafil and its reaction. That is why it takes effect in 15 minutes compared to other drugs which take 30-40 minutes to take effect.
Even in the most sexually liberated and self-satisfied of nations, many people still yearn to burn more, to feel ready for bedding no matter what the clock says and to desire their partner of 23 years as much as they did when their love was brand new.
The market is saturated with books on how to revive a flagging libido or spice up monotonous sex, and sex therapists say “lack of desire” is one of the most common complaints they hear from patients, particularly women.
