Ok, I didn’t really take me that long to knit this scarf, but maybe some of you remember that I started and frogged this many times before it looked the way I wanted it to. Funny enough, I finished this with the pattern I originally started with (don’t tell the bf that!).
I had all this Point 5 that I got for my bday, but I really didn’t know what else to do with it. I originally asked for it to make some hats, but I made one and hated it! So a scarf it is. This one only took less than one skein of both yarns, so know I have to think of something to make with the leftovers. I see myself making one of those freaking scrap wraps once I have enough of these leftovers. I’m not sure what I feel about that!
What about this scarf? I think it’s one only it’s knitter could love. I love it, I think it’s ugly enough to be cute. The bf thinks it’s weird, so maybe that makes me like it more muahaha. I like the difference between the thin mohair and the super thick and thin wool. I wanted the wool to thin out the mohair so it was skinny and fat and thick and thin. I also knit it so that it would curl in to help out my thinning out idea. If I decide to later, I might get a better pic of this since the ones the bf took were all weird and the ones I took cut off my head.
The pattern is super easy, I just randomly decided where I wanted the wool and the mohair. All you have to do is knit one row and then k1p1 in the next. This really helped the thick and thin style of Point 5 come out even more.
