Knitting project #8 - The scarf

I finished knitting my scarf thing. Its about 3'6" long and 5" wide with a cool checkered knit and perl pattern. There's probly a special knitting name for it, but I don't know.


More stats:-
345 rows
28 stitches on each row
9660 stitches in total

Used three skeins of yarn

Material cost

£2.99 X 3 = £8.97
(£0.00093 per stitch)

About 90 seconds per row : 31050 seconds : About 9 hours of labour

Labour cost

£5.73 X 9 = £51.57

So if you're a fan of the Minimum Wage this scarf will cost you about £60

And if your some kind of heartless oppresser of the worker, it'll cost you around £10.

To be honest there are a couple of mistakes in the knitting as a result of easily distracted late night drunken knits on the London Underground and snipping off the trailing ends of casting off a little too close to the knot.

Anyhoo, it'll be on ebay soon.
