Completely Orange With Rings

All together: Scarf in soft wool, polymer clay sea urchin and polymer clay bracelet.
It will not be my last baktus scarf. It is simply too much fun not to make loads of. Easy and straight forward. And the pattern is even free. What more could one want?

Well, a new excuse to buy more yarn. And I found the excuse - I really can not remember what it was... Oh, I think it must be that I wanted a little scarf to go with my orange polymer clay sea urchin and the new bracelet I made.

Orange is after all my newest color affection. I found the yarn in a shop on Etsy in my search for orange yarn. I loved the color scheme and Rebecca dyed two skeins for me.

I think it is magic to get two skeins of yarn just for me all hand painted. A really lovely and soft yarn. And no bleeding at all.

I got an idea of making my scarf special. So I came up with this rather simple design: To add three rings in each end of it.

The rings are knitted in the round.  You can se how I did this on my Ravelry project page. The rings are not sewn at all just knitted together like a paper chain.

I did a provincial cast on and as I started on the scarf itself I wrapped the end around the first ring and knitted the live stitches together with the ones at the end of the wrap. Also better (I hope) explained in my project page.

I love wearing it. It is so colorful and the yarn is wonderful. Let´s go orange - whatever that means!!!

  15. I just discovered your blog and find it beautiful! Is inspiring to see your knits! I'm from Argentina, to be more precise I live in Puerto Madryn, Patagonia. Here, in our fields, there are many sheeps. However unfortunately the shops do not have good quality wool.
    Best regards and congratulations for your work!!
