Look! It's an outfit! For my headless beauty! And it wasn't even planned... She just looked a little cold the other day so I thought I'd warm her up with the scarf I had just cast off.
Too many customers had been inspiring me to give this scarf a go, and I see why it has become such a popular one to make! So much fun! So easy! I love it! (Alright, I'll cool it with the exclamations marks now).
And the sweater? It was one of Christine's creations. Made out of Alfa, from a Sandnesgarn book.
I hope to one day wear this sweater. I hope she's alright with that.
The scarf is of course the famous Brooklyn Tweed Scarf and although it's hard to tell, I did in fact use two different shades of Noro, one was just really rather subtle. That's right, I used the words "Noro" and "subtle" in the same sentence. I just wanted to see how this combination would work up, and there is really only one way to find out, isn't there? I think it looks a bit more like a barcode than the 'traditional' version, but that's ok. I like stripes of all sorts- even barcode stripes.
Pattern- Brooklyn Tweed's Noro Striped Scarf
Yarn- 4 balls of Noro Silk Garden (2 balls each of 2 shades)
Pattern- Sandnesgarn Mix Dame book
Needles- Uhhhmm... that's a good question, I didn't make it. Alfa is usually knit on a 6mm but this pattern could be a wee different...
And VOILA! A knitted outfit.
I had better go and cast on some knitted hot-pants or something to complete the look.
