I have been in a machine knitting slump lately and decided to do an easy project on my standard gauge machine. I tend to try and do most things on my bulky. My bulky and I are great friends. My standard wants to be my friend, but I've been a bit resistant and I've decided to stop that.
I picked out Patricia Tan's "Tuck and Enjoy" pattern for a scarf. It took a few minutes to understand how the needle placement should go. The below picture shows what I finally decided. It helped me a lot to look back on my own pattern for a tuck scarf to figure it out. Since they were very similar.
What I found is you need to use lots of weight. One also needs to be vigilante about moving it up. This pattern goes quickly and before I knew it the weights were behind the ribber and that's too low.
In the end I made this beautiful scarf. I used one skein of Tosca Light. The scarf came to 47 inches. I decided to try the Twisted Fringe idea for the ends. I had run out of the Tosca Light and bought some Lion Brand Amazing in a matching color for the fringe. I just love love love the twisted fringe.
