Sky Scarf

Project Description

What are you most proud of? Even though it took me almost a year after the end date for the scarf, I finally finished it. What advice would you give someone starting this project? Because you're using 7 balls of yarn, the bind off is a bit difficult - use larger than usual needles, so that you can accommodate the stitches when you slip them over to bind off.

What you will need

  • The sky scarf (http://www.leafcutterdesigns.com/projects/sky-scarf.html) is a scarf that takes a year to knit... you knit one line every day for a year
  • based on the colour of the sky for that day. In fact
  • it takes more than a year
  • because
  • of course
  • life intervenes
  • and you miss days of knitting
  • so keeping a calendar is a good idea. Five colours
  • dark blue
  • light blue
  • white
  • light grey and dark grey are used
  • with 2 lines of each blue... so 7 lines are used in the knitting
  • with only 2 colours being knit each line
  • and the other 5 colours are carried up the side. You can use any lace-weight yarn in the appropriate colours; I used Bernat Baby yarn for the whites and blues
  • and Paton Kroy sock yarn for the greys.
  • US 4 / 3.5 mm
