Woolly In The Wind
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.
