Another marvel made by Lucy Neatby and drawing on the double-knitting technique!
This scarf is a real beauty and Lucy explains the hows and wheres and whys very thoroughly.
But just in case, I want to make sure you know that if you would feel more comfortable learning this technique from seeing rather than reading, email me and I'll order you one of Lucy's amazing DVDs that teaches double-knitting in a most comprehensive way. No problem, just a bit of time involved.
Here is how Lucy describes this beauty, perfect and in time for Valentine's Day:
"Take your Double Knitting a leap further. This lovely (OK, bad pun) scarf features Hugs (O) on one side and Kisses (X) on the other, all united with a column of gently padded, quilted, but not quite beating, hearts.
The pattern is charted as well as written in full.
Size: In sport-weight yarn, 100 g each of Light and Dark yarns, gives a scarf 6 inches x 44 inches (16cm x 110 cms).
Yarn: From Fingering to Worsted
Techniques: Tubular Cast-On and Bind-Off (described in detail), two-colour double layer knitting and stuffing technique.
Skill Level: Advanced or determined intermediate.
A wonderful way to stretch your knitting repertoire. And make a gorgeous scarf with the special warmth of double-knitting in the process.
