I can agonise over putting the right yarn with the right pattern. It can take me hours, days or, in some cases, years on I still haven’t found The One.
Finding the perfect pattern for the Rico yarn I blogged about last week didn’t take that long.
I tried it with an entrelac scarf pattern first and while the technique lends itself to striping yarn, it didn’t work with this one (colour change was too long).
I then went looking for one of those multidirectional scarf patterns that were all the rage when I first started knitting. And I found one.
With the help of Working Girl (boy, that was some BIG hair!) and a little insomnia I started knitting on Friday evening:
and on Sunday evening, I finished!
Monday I added fringing:
Yarn and needles: Rico Creative Poems Aran (100% new wool) colour 003. Used all of 2 x 50g balls (approx. 200m total). 5 mm bamboo straights. Purchased from Black Sheep (no affiliation, just a very satisfied customer)
Size: 4″ wide by 50″ long without fringe and 58″ with fringe.
