The Geometric Scarf: originally made with three skeins (each skein is 176yds) of Koigu Premium Merino in pink (finished scarf 10" x 36", a little short for me), it had "decorative rose quartz beads" on each corner, and was blocked out, so the scarf was the same width throughout.
Mine, a tiny bit different: I liked the idea of the rose quartz beads, but when I thought about it, it seemed a bit dangerous to me. Imagine throwing one scarf end behind you, grazing everything within reach, and panging on your back. O.K. a little far fetched, but certainly possible. Besides, I don't have any suitable beads. So they are out. I don't even have enough yarn left for tassels. So for the time being I just leave it as is, but I will keep my eyes open for something I'd like to have tangling off the corners.
I also left ten stitches in the middle in stockinett stitch, just because.
I washed the scarf and kinda blocked it. This yarn is very pounce, it's like a rubber band, bounces back so easily, that I didn't even attempt to block them out.
And I have to say, I was quite wrong, in my assumption that one more ball of yarn (I used 4) would not make a difference in the overall length. Why did I think that?
Here are some more specifics about the geometric scarf:
pattern: from the book Vogue' Knitting Scarves, Vogue Knitting on the go! As seen here
pattern is on page 47
yarn: Corallina merino extra fine (made for Baby items, so soft and bouncy), one ball is 50g/187yds, color # 40, a beautiful grass green, machine washable 100% merino, I used 4 balls = 748yds
size after washing and lightly blocking: 6" x 74" (quite a bit longer than the original)
start-finish: July 28 - August 05
It was the most boring knit, but I like the beginning and the end of this scarf. It's probably the softest scarf I made so far, with zero itch factor. The only reason I finished it so quickly was, that I wanted to take pictures (very uninspired I might add), before my guys took my camera on vacation with them. So here it is, I even might knit another one someday, who knows?
