Woolly In The Wind

Not easy photographing in this ice cold wind we are having. But as long as I can not find anything else to complain about I think I am fine.

Anyway, this is about the new scarf all knitted in the round from a mittens pattern and with Kauni effektgarn. The genius thing about this yarn is that there are no color changes other than the ones given by the yarn.


I knitted one end as the decreases for the mittens.

I should of course have done that with the other  - but I often start knitting and things are made as I go. Or knit...


The long color changes makes it perfect for stranded knitting. One skein used as background color and one for the pattern color.

They both change colors all the time - and thats what gives all the color changes. Color knitting for the lazy - or should I say the crazy?

After all knitted with 2mm needles and for as long as 2.4m - it is more crazy than lazy.

I like the outcome. But I am really not sure if it is colorful enough for my taste. Kauni is extremely photogenic and looks more bright and colorful in photos than in real life.

I am not happy about that the orange and green takes up so much of the scarf.

And especially in both ends and in front of my face. But it was a fun knit and a great example for the lecture I gave about knitting with colors.

  4. Deilig skjal du har strikket. Jeg mener fargene er herlig. Og storfin spiss er også og mønsteret naturlig. Fantastisk. Ha en deilig påske. Hilsen til deg.

  5. Nyyydelig!!! En fargefest! Mønsteret er også herlig.
    Men jeg skjønner hva du mener med fargene. Noen er "svake" og kan ødelegge helhetsinntrykket. Noe man kan gjøre, er å utelate en eller to farger, når de dukker opp, men da ødelegger det "Flowen" også, fargemessig.
    Jeg skulle gjerne ha surret skjerfet rundt ansiktet, for jeg kler ORANGE nemlig! ;)

    1. Tusen takk Sylvia. Jeg tenkte også på det, men som du sier vil flowen bli helt ødelagt.

  8. I like the way you wrapped the scarf around your neck--very stylish! I, too, first thought of an arrow with the shape. Very pretty!

  13. Fantastiskt vackert, som vanligt! Jag önskar att jag vore bättre på färgstickning, men tycker det är lite svårt att få till en bra trådspänning!
