Another Practice

I found a pattern for the knit Dimple Stitch and I think it will make a fantastic scarf or baby blanket. I'm doing it in a scarf first, practicing my continental knitting. Since this pattern naturally tends to curl I'm putting in a four stitch garter border.

For the scarf, I've cast on 31 stitches to accommodate the pattern and the edge stitches. I've already figured out that if I slip the first stitch of each row, it's much easier to knit the next ones. And since it's a garter border, slipping that stitch won't make much difference.

I just don't know how I'm going to fare when I get to the pattern part, but we'll see. I'm using an off-white yarn, I think it's RHSS.
