What took me days to knit, was frogged in a couple of minutes....


Beautiful colours, don't you think? This was a skein of yarn called "Rubber grapes" which I got a few months ago in the Spunky Eclectic yarn club. I new this was not made to become a pair of socks, so I casted on for a necherchief. The pattern was easy to memorise and it was quite a fast knit. As my ball of yarn made it to the end I casted off only to find it to short in lenght to wrap around my neck... I guess I could tie a knot at the back of my neck, but I don't like that... So I frogged it instead. Now I need to look for a wider, slimmer shawl.

Dandy necherchief - which I've frogged..

Pattern: Dandy neckerchief by Ariane Caron-Lacoste.
Yarn: 100 g Super Nova from Spunky Eclectic #Rubber Grapes.
Needles: 4 mm.

  1. Have you looked up cowl patterns on ravelry? There are some great patterns that don't use a lot of yarn, but you can still showcase around you're neck!

    Hope this helps!

  3. Det blir helt sikkert til noe fint til slutt:) Ellers må jeg si det ble utrolig flott etter oppussingen av stue og kjøkken til deg. Enig med deg at det er utrolig hva maling kan gjøre av mirakler:)

  4. Så dumt da. :o(

    Hva med Little Shells Shawlette, det krever lite garn og er greit å surre rundt halsen. Holder på med mitt andre nå, veldig enkelt og pent mønster.

    Mimouna: Skal gå inn på Ravelry å sjekke det sjalet :)
