Wacky Woolly Knitting


This project goes perfect with my wacky woolies from Ireland.
Some projects are impossible to get an image of before they are done. This is one of them. When I first saw it on Ravelry I did not get it. A shawl to walk into? A sleeping bag? A bolero without holes for the arms?

Well, when a knitting friend came along with it I got it. And got myself some yarn and started knitting Viajante, as it is called. The german designer Martina Behm manage to come up with something totally new and out of the box. You start by knitting a triangle, then join to knit in the round and simply knit until you drop (not your stitches).

I had a few problems with the increase method but my good knitting friend helped me and I got it going. Such a fun knit - and such a great garment for both summer (the norwegian one) and winter. I can use it as a shawl, as a scarf and finally as a thing I take over my head and wrap around me. Does it sound wacky?? Check out the link for the pattern and you will see how it looks when it is done.

The yarn and the color of it is such a surprise. I use the danish Holst yarn for Viajante. This is the first time I use the yarn and I will use it again. Totally in woolly love with it.

  1. Nej hvor sjov strik, den kunne godt findes på mine pinde. Holst garn er stor favorit hos mig, efter vask bliver det bare så lækkert.
