A couple of weeks ago we had a little sight seeing trip to London for the weekend.
Obviously I needed a bit of knitting to take with me for the journey, and I had nothing appropriate on any needles, so a new project was called for.
Having found a very charming skein of sock yarn in my stash (Ripples Crafts Hand Dyed Sock Yarn), I cast on for a scarf and was jolly happy with myself!!
There was plenty of knitting time on the train and a tiny amount of knitting time during our stay.
On returning home I decided that the scarf was not going to be long enough with just this one skein of yarn.
I was very happy to find some yellow West Yorkshire Spinners 4ply which went really well with the one I was using and merrily continued with my new scarf. Now it is finished and I am very pleased with it.
This is such an easy stitch to do, creating something which looks very impressive, especially when combined with a yarn such as this from Ripples Crafts. It would make a nice winter scarf if done on larger needles using something chunky!!
I’ve written out the pattern and you can download it for free here.
