The parameters of the contest said each of the 20 contestants had to create either a scarf, fingerless gloves or cushion cover using a specific stitch with 3 variations. I played with this stitch a lot trying to decide what to make, it took a while but finally something came to me. My finished piece is an infinity scarf that I am very pleased with.
It twists in the center, shown folded down.
Here I twisted it into a rose and simply pinned it with a safety pin, held great all day that way.
To start, I chained 87 stitches. Using stitch variation 1, I made my first row. Just before joining my first row and making a circle, I twisted it one time. Then I continued the stitch, because of that twist, there was no turning, just continuing around and around until I had a thickness I liked.
Once I got to a thickness I liked, it still needed something. The ruffle row is the same stitch but tripled. Three of the same stitch in one place.
Peace be with you,
