Tricolour Scarf

Knitwits Yarns knitwitspenzance.co.uk

A few weeks ago, you may remember this:

en route to London. Well this, miraculously and as if by magic, has turned into this:

Close up it looks like this:

and the back is lined in luscious red crushed velvet:

I love it and am thrilled with it and it exceeds all my expectations.

Sometimes patterns are fine (or even brilliant) in your head but, in practice, they just don't make the grade. But this one does. It's knitted in Cornish Organic Chunky so the cables sit up beautifully, the colours are amazing and the red lining turns it into a very luxurious, warm, cosy item. I am really, really happy with it - as you can probably tell.

(It will also please tinebeest of the comments who eschews fancy acrylic scarves for proper wool from happy sheep!)

Tomorrow I have more new loveliness for you. Don't go away.

PS: You can buy the pattern and the wool to knit my loveliness - here.

  1. Hear hear! Proper job :-)

    Yes, it is lovely. Can one have too many scarves? Think I may have to buy some of your lovely wool and the pattern to go with it... (down in Cornwall again in Dec.-Jan. You've been warned)
