i finally finally finished my christmas knitting this year and am planning to mail the package out this week. this is for my mom.
she likes scarves that are wide, fit well around her neck and tuck into her coat to keep her extra warm, so i thought a seaman scarf would be perfect for her. i learned about them from this fabulous book.
i used the beauty of a yarn that is alpaca with a twist, baby twist. size 7 needles. the yarn is so soft and really a great deal. here’s a close-up of the lace pattern.
i made each side of this one from the bottom up and then did the scary thing that is grafting over ribbing. um. scary. so when i write up the pattern, it just may say good luck in that space :)
