Knitting: Pretty little scarf

A few weeks ago I couldn’t resist the temptation and ended up buying some fairly expensive, at least for my standards, wool from John Lewis. It was in a clearance bin after all!

The wool is spectacular and different from any wool I’ve ever knitted with. It’s layered and contains three very different repeating patterns and even Arthur likes it. Now before this sounds like a full advertisement I have to say it’s not the easiest wool to knit with as it’s slippery and the red/gold pattern is very thick compared to the others. It also splits easily.

It does however provide great results!

The scarf is in the same style as the one for @Anie67 though slightly modified to create more of a ribbing effect:

  • Cast on 24 stitches using Patons Morocco pink.
  • Row 1 – 7k, 2p, 2k, 2p, 2k, 2p, 7k.
  • Row 2 – 7p, 2k, 2p, 2k, 2p, 2k, 7p.
  • Repeat row 1-2 until scarf has desired length. I used almost three balls for mine.

Overall it was a nice and quick project taking me about eight hours from start to finish. I still have several balls of wool left and am debating on possibly knitting a hat with it and working a bit more with the colours.
