Rings, Stripes And Beads

Oh, just an urge to knit another little scarf from stash in bright colors. And once more with rings on the ends. So far so good. I was planing to knit only with two colors.

I do not seem to make that no matter what. To sparkle the scarf up I added some turquoise too. I think I like it.

These scarves are so easy to knit and to experiment with. I have made a three meter long Stash And Stripes inspired from that pattern.

It is so popular on Ravelry and there are nearly 8.000 projects made from it. It is so much fun to see all the colors.

I like the shape of them and they are so versatile. And so comfortable to wear. And the ends makes a finish that makes them hang better.

I have published the pattern for the rings and how to attach them on my project page on Ravelry. Feel free to knit rings and have a go on it.

Ok, but I did not stop when the scarf was finished. I picked out my polymer clay to make a matching bracelet.

When finished I discovered that I had used the wrong green color. So, back to the table again.

I made a new one in the right colors and I am very pleased with the set. The matching is really not the issue. I like to wear accessories that gives a sparkle in every day life. And that are not department store alike. It is really about having fun creating something that makes me smile.

I wish you a lovely day - and that you can create things that makes you smile and dance inside.

  3. hei - bare lurer på hvorfor skjerfet ditt blir så langt?
    de andre bildene som ligger på Ravelry - der er skjerfene kortere
    Øker du sjeldnere, eller hva??
    Håper du kan svare meg på bloggen min eller på mail

    1. Dette svar er sendt deg: Jeg følger oppskriften og øker på hver 4. omgang, men jeg strikker jo kanskje lengre enn de andre. Og jeg bruker tynt garn og tynne pinner. Når skjerfet blir tynt må det også bli lengre før det blir stort nok til å bruke som skjerf. Tror det er årsaken - i tillegg til at jeg strikker glattstrikk.

  4. enda et spørsmål; er det forskjell på Karius og Baktus skjerf? mener å ha hørt at det ene er riller og det andre i glattstrikk...??

    1. Har også lest at Baktus er rillestrikk og Karius er glattstrikk. Men det er samme oppskrift, så derfor legger jeg det alltid til denne på Ravelry.

  12. Egentligt bliver jeg altid lidt misundelig, når jeg ser alt det fine "tilbehør" du laver. Tænker tit at jeg gerne ville gå mere med tørklæder og armbånd og lignende, men når man så er iført kokkejakke og nul dingel på armene, når man arbejder, så bliver det ikke rigtigt til noget. Jeg glemmer det simpelthen altid. Så er det jo fint at kunne glædes over dine fine ting.
    Kan du have en dejlig weekend.
    Kh. Dorte
