Knitting Around In Circles

Not only is the pattern circles, I´m also knitting in the round for this scarf. Which is my preferred technique. Purling is not fun - and worse if there´s stranded pattern involved.

And in this way it get´s really nice and warm. I´m planning on making it about 2 meters long.

Anyway, I found the chart for the circles on Ravelry as a free pattern and it fitted my need for a mindless knitting perfect. It don´t get boring and I love stranded knitting. I cast on 120 stitches on a 30 mm circular needle on 2 mm.

The yarn is Zauberball from Shcoppel-Wolle. And it´s completely unpredictable.

The color changes in all directions and so does the thickness of the yarn. But for this project it´s perfect.

I´m always surprised by the colors that comes out of the skeins and how they match together.

So, this is a really enjoyable knit, full of surprises and you never know what you gonna get. Sounds like the qoute from the movie Forest Gump: 

Life was like a box of chocolates. You never know what you're gonna get.

  8. I join the rest in saying this is absolutely beautiful. With yarn there is always an element of surprise and knitting something can feel like opening a Christmas present.
    I was hoping you will show the back side once you've finished. I'm always interested in other people's techniques :-)

  9. Thank you coffeeaddict!! You can see some of the backside if you click on the photo. I knit with both threads over my left hand forefinger - always keeping the pattern thread in the same place. If you know what I mean... LOL!!
