FO: Wino Scarf


(Otherwise known as sheep in the city’s My So Called Scarf)

I finished this sometime in January. Thereabouts. Maybe December? Well, fairly recently, at any rate.

Yarn: 2 skeins Manos Del Uruguay in Colorway #118, or Mulled Wine

Needles: Lantern Moon, size 11

Finished Dimensions: 77″ long, 4-5″ wide (the ends are wider – seems to be a common occurrence with this pattern)

My one modification came from the suggestion here at knit one chic too, which gives a tip for cleaner edges.

Need help with the pattern stitch? Great tutorial here at Serenity Garden.

I would definitely make this one again. It’s a fun pattern, and it’s not endless rows of knit stitch in a circle – and, it’s not burgundy and gold (yes, I am going to bitch about that damn scarf forever. *&$%&!! My blog, cry if I want to and all that.). I love the look of the herringbone stitch (close-up photo in this post), and the yarn is warm and soft. And wino colors – my favorite! Which explains my prosaic choice of wine bottles as props in the pictures. The cat butt – not my choice; apparently, he thinks he’s one hot piece of tail and deserving of a photo shoot. Whatever.

  1. OK, this is funny… I think I just bought the exact same yarn for the exact same project! And I’m glad I did, because yours sure looks pretty.
