This is a design based on M. C. Eschers work that you knit in one piece, theres no sewing involved at all! The intarsia technique makes this possible.
If you are familiar with working from a chart, have access to a colour printer - which is necessary to print the coloured charts -, consider yourself a fairly experienced knitter and are in the mood for a very detailed, delicate and somewhat different knit, you will like this pattern!
It comes in a scarf and in a cowl version. The scarf uses fingering, the cowl lace weight yarn.
558 yards of Fingering weight

My name is Jana Huck. I live in Luebeck, Germany. I started knitting when I searched for something that I still could do while being sick and it has become a passion. I almost started designing right from the beginning as I had no patience for following directions. I always need a challenge when I knit. I love to have an idea and to think: Yes, this would be nice but it is impossible to do. Then I find a way to do it. Whenever I see hand-knitted items, I try to figure out in my head how they were knit. Of course, there are many, many knitwear designers that I admire and to relax, I now love to work from their patterns.
I feel that it is very fulfilling to write down my ideas and share them with other knitters. Hooray for the internet which is making this so easy!
I have been knitting for a few years now. I am still in awe by the many possibilities. I definitely do not knit fast enough. ;)
