Scarf of the Day: No. 22

Scarf of the Day: No. 22

Today’s scarf is a pseudo-cowl. It’s another Enterlac piece that I made.

My first blog post about Entrelac can be read here, my very first Scarf of the Day. This wasn’t really a pattern in the book but just the tutorials in the beginning included how to do Entrelac in a triangle.

I had bought three skins of Lion Brands Hometown USA, I knit something up but didn’t like it. So when it was all done I undid it and made something else.

I ended up not liking that either so I undid it and made this instead.

I love the way it ended up and how the colors helped enhance the pattern. Sometimes it takes a couple of tries to get something right.

Have you ever finished a project just to undo it and start over again?

Scarf of the Day: No. 1

Scarf of the Day: No. 1

For the month of November I will (hopefully) be posting a scarf a day. I have very many scarves, some I’ve made, others were gifts, knitted and fabric, and I love them all.

The first scarf I’ll be sharing is an Entrelac Scarf, that I made a couple of years ago with a matching hat.

Day 1

I found thisĀ book, Entrelac, The Essential Guide to Interlace Knitting by Rosemary Drysdale. It is fantastic and the instructions are well written and can be followed very well. It starts out with tutorials how to do base triangles, right-hand corner triangles, right-side rectangles, left-hand corner triangles, wrong-side rectangles, and end triangles. I used these to make my scarf and kept repeating and repeating until I finished my yarn.

Then I decided to do one of the projects in the book, the Tweed Beret. This hat is knit in the round from the top down but I must say that knitting Entrelac in the round is much easier.

Check back each day to see my collection of my scarves.
