FO – Forest Neck Warmer

FOREST NECK WARMER

FO - Forest Neck Scarf2

History
I was looking for a small project to keep myself occupied while i find my way around in Sydney. I looked at my small yarn stash that i bought along with me from India and at the “Scarf Style” book that i received as part of Knitters’s Holiday Swap. I had only 1 ball of yarn and when i finally finished it; it seemed more like a neck warmer than a scarf. I named it as the color reminded me of the forests..

Yarn: Rowan Felted Tweed – 1 ball (50 gm) (I got this as a gift from Rima)
Needles: 5mm straights
Others: Tapestry Needle
Gauge: I started out loose then i dont know when .. but my gauge tightened a bit.
Size: Its around 50cm X 5.5cm
Pattern: “Midwest Moonlight Scarf” from Scarf Style
Notes:
The pattern is simple, i didn’t even have to look up the pattern after sometime.
I started off a bit loose and a couple of pattern repeats less. As i knitted it i fell into the usual gauge for the needle, so the scarf is a bit wide at one end. Its long enough to wrap it around my neck; it keeps it warm also. I also used it as a head scarf to keep my ears warm.

If i make it again;
Use a yarn that is soft and drapes a bit and keep the gauge consistent

Learnt:
That i have to keep my gauge a bit consistent. Instead of knitting loose i could have gone a needle size up.

Time:
A week as i am a bit on and off it.

    Such a lovely green – reminds me of moss growing on big, old trees.
