two parts lucious colored Koigu. One
part silky fur Apart. Combine,
shake with a little garter stitch and a couple of
episodes of Six Feet Under and you've got a slinky
(or not): strangers will pet you when you wear this
scarf, but f**k 'em; you're a rock star.

2 Skeins Koigu
[176 yds per skein]
1 Skein GGH
Apart [120 yds per skein]
note: Jillian says you can substitute Berocco
Zap (3 skeins) for the Apart, but it's not as
slinky and sexy.
Size: 6" x 66"
= 4" in garter stitch
CC, co 35 sts.
K in garter st for 6 rows [3 ridges].
Switch to MC and k in garter st for 18 rows [9 ridges].
Continue knitting, following pattern as established
until 1 yd of CC remains.
Cast off loosely.
Weave in ends.
Tip: If you drop a stitch while knitting with Apart,
it's easier to rip back and start that section of
yarn again than to try to find the dropped stitch!
Moreno started designing patterns for Acme Knitting
Company to stay sane while she stays home with her preschool
daughter in Austin, Texas.
