nettiescarf1:: for swap victim Nettie,inspired by this, using this pattern and mirasol yarn

Sometimes swap projects are a bore, working to a deadline for someone I don’t know, wondering why I signed up in the first place, using colours I don’t like.  Not this one.  The colours and the stitch pattern were an enchanting pleasure, and I didn’t want it to end. I may just cast on another one, for me.

    Nettie’s a lucky victim! I really like how the yarn and pattern go together.

    This is the most beautiful scarf i’ve seen in ages, it really made me want to make one immediately.

    Would love to know more about the pattern and needle size you used. I saw the original inspiration pattern but i’d like to know more about the one you did and/or the one I saw posted on Michelle’s flickr page. Any other info much appreciated.

      I used 5mm needles and sport-weight yarn, and otherwise followed the pattern exactly (apart from the slit and a row of crochet round the edges).
