I am actually quite allergic to cantaloupe, but maybe it is the very lure of the “forbidden fruit” that drew me to this particular color of the luscious, smooshy cotton Sprout yarn. Just one skein and a couple of hours yields this soft, fun scarf
Cast on 14 stitches.
Row 1: k1, yo, k2tog, k2tog, yo, k4, yo, k2tog, k2tog, yo, k1. Row 2: k1, purl to last stitch, k1.
Repeat these two rows until you have a couple of yards left, ending with a wrong side row. Bind off loosely using knit stitch.
I steam-blocked this fairly aggressively, using my fingers to open up the lacework. The Sprout responds very well to a steam iron.
