A trellis-like design that reverses to a graphic leaf has been my new winter knitted scarf for this year. I call the pattern Treillage Scarf and Wrap and it is available on www.Ravelry.com. Pictured above Treillage was knitted as a winter scarf in worsted weight yarn. I used the beautiful Ultra Alpaca from Berroco in the color Grapefruit Mix #62178. Ultra Alpaca is a beautiful 50% Alpaca, 50% Peruvian Wool blend. I love knitting with it and wearing it.
I liked the pattern so much, I wrote the pattern for several different yarn weights and different widths, it works great as a scarf or wrap in any weight yarn really.
I liked it so much that I made a a second. Its wider and in a fingering weight making a lovely wrap. I used Malabrigo Sock in the color Lettuce (pictured on blocking board).
Now I am a couple of days away from finishing Ibiza (formaly known as Lazy River). Applause applause!!!! That's me applauding and cheering and woot wooting since I started this pattern back in November or earlier and it got set aside for holiday knitting and Krista needed winter hats and scarves for herself knitting.
Ibiza is knitted lace that will be written as both a scarf and wrap. I am knitting the wrap and Fred (a fabulous test knitter) is knitting it as a scarf. While I am knitting it in a lace weight, Fred ventured into trying it in a fingering weight and then a second version in a bulky weight. Much to my surprise (and glee) it looks great in all. More soon on all the details.
Has anyone been tangle doodling or zentangling..... I'm nuts about it .....more later
