Orange scarf in Musternixen Style

I’ve tried out a yarn by Katia that was supplied to me by Katia. Here is a link to more information K A T I A − you can’t order from there, though, you have to find an authorized dealer that carries their yarns.
After I had finished knitting the scarf, I put it in the washing machine in the delicate cycle at 30°C 86.0 °F, with a 900 rpm spinning cycle :D, to find out how it (fiber content: 50/50 wool/polyester) would hold up to washing. I have to say, it washed well, after which I pulled it into shape with clothespins and let it dry overnight. The finished size is 185 cm 73 in long and 28 cm 11 in wide. It’s a nice size to tie , or be worn as a loop or be draped with a shawl pin.
How I knitted it:
The yarn I’ve already mentioned above,
Needle size 3.5 mm US4
I cast on 70 sts,
then worked the first 10 rows in garter stitch.
At least the first 5 and the last 5 sts garter stitch,
——–otherwise the edges will curl————-
After that, I worked purely at random. If so to speak, NO BRAIN
very relaxing, without counting and without paying special attention, to what would come next.

  1. moss stitch
  2. 6 rows stockinette and 2 rows reverse stockinette Did not wait until the next knot and just worked 4 rows eyelet pattern
  3. double moss stitch
  4. 3 x 6 rows stockinette and 2 rows reverse stockinette
  5. triple moss stitch, not over 2 sts but over 3 sts instead Did not wait until the next knot and to the next knot, worked in eyelet pattern.
  6. 6 rows stockinette and 2 rows reverse stockinette
  7. moss stitch
  8. eyelet pattern
  9. 6 rows stockinette and 2 rows reverse stockinette
  10. double moss stitch the last 10 rows garter stitch.
