A Confession

I do not like purling. Not one bit. Except for k1-p1 stitch patterns because it's fun to flip the yarn strand to the front and back of the work with every stitch.

You know the Michelin Man shown in commercials? He needs a circular scarf, not the long, plain one on the original rendering. I achieved the effect with wide unblocked ribbing. But I'll be damned if I was going to work purl rows.

For a change this scarf didn't go through endless iterations, perhaps because the technique for short rows has been part of my repertoire for decades.
