This scarf was so much fun to knit. And since so many asked about the pattern I hurried up even more. The only thing I did NOT like was, knitting with my Rosewood needles, I much prefer addi turbo's. This is a stitch pattern, I'm definitely going to use again. But - Noro yarns make it easy to look good. ;o)
So here it is:
pattern: titling blocks pattern from the book "A second treasury of knitting patterns" by Barbara Walker (red book), page 263; I saw a wonderful version on Jane's blog; also on this Scarf Style KAL blog you'll find several beautiful ones to look at, it's called Midwest Moonlight Scarf, if you google it, you'll get plenty of hits.
I found this stitch pattern in another very old Burda magazine as well. I'm sure it's easy to get one version or the other.
yarn: Noro Silk Garden, color # 239, 3 balls
size after blocking: 8" x 72"
start-finish: July 22-28
I'm already working on my next scarf. This one is called "Geometric Scarf" and can be found in the little booklet "Vogue Knitting Scarves". The original used only 3 skeins of Koigu, and it's only 36" long. I have 4 balls of the softest merino wool, with more yards each ball than Koigu has, but I doubt that it will get much longer. Still it's a wide scarf, and I don't like them floppy anyways.
