Alex swatch

Project Description

What are you most proud of? I understand the concept, at least! What advice would you give someone starting this project? Make a one-color scarf first so you really grasp the stitch before tackling the two-color work. I'm cutting my losses on this swatch and starting over. I see what mistakes I made and I'm hoping fresh yarn will result in tidier stitches. I ripped this thing back so many times that the yarn is just not happy anymore. Thought about changing the colors, too, but I guess I'll stick with these. The yarn is expensive and I already wound the skeins.

What you will need

  • Classic Elite Fresco (60% wool
  • 30% baby alpaca
  • 10% angora) in Corn Silk and Fern
