I made this scarf as a way to explore working with an alternating fpdc stitch and bpdc stitch. I love the way that this simple stitch pattern repeated over and over makes a super cushy fabric. This is a dollar store yarn but it feels really plush when worked up in what amounts to a two-sided thick fabric. Adore it. I typically wouldn’t wear such a bright color but I’ve actually kind of been having fun with it!

    Bright colors are always a good idea, just not too many at once! Great looking scarf, definitely looks as cozy as you say.

      @Tracey – I definitely agree that bright colors can be great when used properly!

  2. Looking fab. I’ve never tried any kind of post stitching before. Do you mean alternate every other stitch fpdc and bpdc, or do you alternate rows?

      @Abi – I alternated every other stitch to basically create a double sided fabric that pops out from either side of the center. It’s really fun!

      Thanks @Maya! I do about five posts a day M-F so it stays busy around here!
