Caught By Orange


This is one of those project that is light, warm and so lovely to wear. I love the combination of the thin mohair and this beast of a yarn that is uneven and unpredictable. But the colors are so fascinating.

I knitted another scarf from the same pattern. I was happy about that but that heavy end made it slide of easily.

So I altered the pattern a bit. I increased stitches only when knitting with the mohair.

I knitted until I had 95st on my needle.

I then knitted 10cm without increasing. And then, I decreased only when knitting with the mohair yarn.

Confused? Well, check out the pattern and you will find it understandable.

I think I could use another of those scarves.

So versatile and yet warm. And the contrast between the colors and the yarn makes it glow.

Just like when we dare to be our selves in a world demanding us to be something else...

  1. How I love the colours of this scarf. I've had a couple of orange balls in my stash for years, not knowing what to do with it, and your beautiful scarf is giving me inspiration to finally use them. At the moment my country is suffering from snow & ice and those long scarfs are a necessary accessoire when I cycle to my work. One can't have too many scarfs. Have a nice weekend, greetings from Belgium - Rozemie.

  4. Herlige farger og lekkert skjerf! Det må være den lange vinteren som gjør at sterke farger blir ekstra tiltalende nå. De fine fargene er til å bli i godt humør av. Lurer på om jeg ikke trenger noe i oransje? :)

  6. Nå angrer jeg skikkelig på at jeg lot de to hesplene med oransje Isagergarn bli liggende i restekurva. Jeg trodde jeg var flink, men jeg var bare dum.

    Digger sjalet ditt, Lone:-)
