2 contrasting colours of fingering weight yarn. I used 1 skein Twisted Fibre Arts Arial evolution (long self-striping yarn) and 1 skein Arial solid colour.
What was your inspiration?
Hrungnir was one of the giants from Jotunheim. On one visit to Aasgard, Hrungnir drank all the ale from Thors cups and then while he was drunk
boasted that he was going to drink all the ale from the Aasas. Thor took insult and slayed him in a duel. Hrungnir had a heart of stone, sharp and three-sided, and even his head was of stone. But Thor defeated him with his hammer.
This scarf shows Hrungnirs triangular heart, and is knit using two contrasting skeins of fingering weight yarn. One of the skeins is an Evolution which means that the colour changes from one end to the other.
What are you most proud of?
I love the overall shape, and the way the colours work together with the long stripe colour evolution contrasted against the solid colour.
What advice would you give someone starting this project?
Double knitting is a lot easier than many people think it is. As long as you can knit and purl, you can do double-knitting. This pattern includes detailed descriptions of two different methods of double-knitting, so it's a great way to try out a new technique. And for those experienced in double-knitting - it's just a fun pattern to knit.
