Flowers and Swirls


 

After a few days of blocking I can finally show you this new scarf. I made it for the mother of my host son. He has seen me knitting and crocheting all year, and he asked me to make this.

Because I exactly new how I was going to make it, I wrote down the pattern, before I started, so I could test it immediately. With a little help from my husband I also managed to make a good chart for the design.

The yarn I used was again Drops Delight in two different colourways, to obtain the contrast.

Of course the pattern is now available in my shop.

I hope you like it!

Groetjes, Dorien

En of I like it! Het is echt prachtig.

Het patroon van bloem en dambord heb je leuk gecombineerd.

Volgens mij heb je weer iemand heel blij gemaakt met deze sjaal.

Groetjes, Monique

Dorien,
This scarf is absolutely gorgeous. Purples are my favorite, and the yarn you chose really works well with the pattern...Lucky lady that gets to wear this around her neck.
Hugs,
Karen

I love your scarf. Is it double knitting or stranded fair isle style, I can't quite tell. Whatever it is, the flowers are beautiful.
