or: I Am No Longer Afraid Of Nupps!
The short rows make a great shape for sitting on the shoulders.
The top, stocking stitch portion, curls like mad despite a good blocking. I thought it might do that and was going to do a knit/purl textured stitch to help it lie flat and, in retrospect, I wish I had.
Is is too clown-barf-ish? Is the contrast in colours too great to show off the lace and nupps? It may be, I’m not sure. But it’s lovely and soft and it turned out to be the perfect scarf size.
Having said all of that, overall I’m pleased with how this turned out.
Yarn: Dizzy Blonde Studio Mean Girls Yarn Club Aurora’s HOARealis (light fingering, 100% merino). Approx. 280 yds (half a skien) used.
Finished size(s): difficult to measure because it’s very flexible but wingspan approx. 47″ and top neck to point of lace 14″.
Mods/notes: Made the nupps over one row with the help of a crochet hook!
