Super dupes cute scarf pattern from Twinkle:
pattern: Boysenberry scarf from Twinkle's weekend knits
yarn: Patons Classic Roving in "Natural" (I think...)
needles: US #17
mods: aditional garter stich rows were knit -- another 30 rows
For a while there I was koo-koo for all things Twinkle, but I quickly grew to realize that an uber chunky knit was maybe not the best for my body type (still I will probably be first in line again when she comes out with a new book!). I kept at it though...big needles and big yarn and cranking out an uber fast sweater is pretty freakin' satisfying. Better to stick with accesories here I think though then go out of my way to look like a linebacker every day if I can avoid it.
The yarn was a gift from super fabulous Miss Muffy last Christmas and it's first incarnation: the Mobius cowl was a bit of a fail, so I'm happy to have found a pattern it's really working with.
It's a smaller yarn than the Twinkle soft chunky so I knit about another 30 or so rows to the length, and left the width as is. In retrospect I could have easily knit an additional 60 rows---I'd probably like it to be a bit longer still and may even tear back to do so. The Patons roving has no doubt made for a lighter/airier version of this scarf, which is probably a good thing given it's overall size.
gotta love those "warts"!
Anyway I'm pretty happy with this on all points --it looks good, feels good, and even better was a super fast knit (a couple hours maybe?) the most time consuming was probably tying on the fringe at the end.
And it's neutral colour probably means it will see a lot of wear!
