Prismatic

After exactly 7 days, I was able to sew in the ends of Mark's birthday present. I have yet to wash and perhaps block the scarf a bit before wrapping it up, and I am a bit jealous now because I like it more than I thought I would. The design, as I said in a previous post, is rather simple and a mannlier one than my usual favourite patterns. Still, I do like the regularity and simplicity of it. What is more, I love how soft and warm the scarf feels even thought it seemed too hard while I was knitting.

Materials:
  • 100g Schachenmayr Nomotta Extra Merino (colourway 51)
  • 3mm straight needles
  • tapestry needle
  • row counter (till I got the hang of it)

Prismatic is a reversible scarf, though that does not mean you get the same pattern on both sides. They are very similar, however, so that I don't mind the slight difference. The only issues I had arose from the supposed i-cord selvedge that looks nothing like it ought to even though I knit everything according to the pattern. Instead, I have exactly the type of wavy edge it was meant to prevent. Luckily, it looks good nonetheless.

Mark's birthday is only in January! I wish I could show him the pictures already, but I will have to hold back till then. Luckily, he knows he can't come to look at my blog till after his birthday, so there is no chance of him finding out. Unless he is peeking.

  1. Gut, dass er Deinen Blog nicht liest ... ;) Hattest Du nicht geschrieben, es wäre die gleiche Wolle wie die für meinen Pullover (OnLine Champ)? Oder war das ein anderer Schal?
