I’ve never been very good at keeping records of quick projects so I’m hoping that having this blog gets me into the habit.
Last weekend when chatting with some friends I offered to make one a scarf. I asked him what his favourite colour was and so I had an actual excuse to buy new yarn on my next visit to the Wool Haven – other than “It’s so pretty/fluffy!”
He’d asked for red. I wanted a strong colour but not pillarbox so selected King Cole Super Chunky Twist in Claret Twist. The flecks of other colours gives it a bit more interest without taking away the depth of red. The yarn is 100% acrylic but incredibly soft and really easy to work with.
I used 9 mm needles and worked knit 2, purl 2 over 22 stitches.
Not quite sure exactly how long it took to finish as I worked on it on and off for an evening, I would think around 2 hours.
Using 2 balls resulted in a generous scarf measuring about 18 cm/7 inches wide and 112 cm/44 inches long.
