I know you’ve seen them, the colorful fair isle scarves on Ravelry and Pinterest.
Well, the bug bit me, and I had to make one for Chickadee. I had just finished Wren’s cowl, and I vaguely knew what I wanted to do. The only major difference is that I’ve chosen to go monochromatic! I cast on 70 stitches to work the stripes and then increased by 2 stitches to make for a motif-friendly stitch count of 72.
The first segment of this infinity scarf measures about 22″ long. I am hoping to make this 4.5′ to 5′ long so that it can wrap around her head twice. I think this means I’m about a third of the way done. (Although I had exceptional math skills, I was never good at arithmetic!)
Shown above are two of my cherished details thus far: owls, they are her favourite birds at the moment, and the Fana star because, well, that’s how her sister says her name.
Though it’s time to take a break and direct my attention to a few other projects, I can’t wait to come back with another update when the next third is completed!
