LMKG #8: Morning Train Knock-Off Scarf.

I'm an Anthropologie addict. I've learned that, when vacationing in a city with an Anthropologie store, I must allow a full additional day for shopping there, gazing at the amazing window displays, smelling every candle, and just generally soaking up all the anthro-ness. One of my favorite Ravelry groups is Anthropologie lovers, where they find and feature Anthro-like patterns.

I recently ran across this free pattern called Septa Scarf, a.k.a. The Morning Train Knock-Off Scarf, from Dulle Griet:

OK, the astute among you have probably figured out that photo is not the Morning Train Knock-Off scarf. I asked Dulle Griet for permission to show her project photo, but have not heard back from her...and the LMKG must go on. So I inserted a photo from Elle Paris that Holly shared with me recently - purely for your entertainment.

You are entertained, no?

Anyhoo, if you want to see the photo of the Morning Train scarf, click here.
It's basically a simple cable scarf with an easy crocheted edge, but what a result! Great excuse to learn double crochet, if you haven't already. (What's that, do I hear groaning? Remember, Loops offers private lessons in knitting and crochet - no excuses!)

The pattern calls for a yarn we don't carry - but would be great in Louisa Harding Hulda #08 (3-4 skeins) or Spud & Chloe Outer (5-6 skeins). You would want to go up to a bigger needle with the Outer - maybe a 13 or 15 - but you would also get a bigger scarf!

Ooo! How awesome is that? It'd be cool in a lighter weight yarn on 6s or 7s, too, and look kinda lacy! Maybe the Cascade Pure Alapaca.... Yummy soft!!

Or that crocheted edge would be awesome on just about any scarf!
