A new scarf.
Made with Moda Vera Bouvardia, an acrylic/wool blend.
But what struck me about it was the colours.
I used colourway 104-05
Which cycles through dark purple plums, with turquoise, green, pinks, and olive.
The base pattern was from knitting daily free lace patterns
I used the lace pattern (p1 yo k2tog) but not the recommended yarn. And i used 5.5m needles as recommended but the yarn.
It took me a while to figure out the pattern.
The language ‘one-row lace’ was/is confusing. I had to research it to make sure that it was just the same row repeated when you work back along the line, and there wasn’t some right side / wrong side inverse knit (k1 yo p2tog) that was necessary.
I still think i’ve done it wrong, and maybe I should have done something different on the wrong side. Mine looks a bit different from the pictures.
I also ignored the colour changes which made it a bit difficult to read the pattern (but easier to knit I would imagine).
But the end result is quite beautiful.
I started Thursday night and finished on Monday night, with another project (and some non-knitting time) in there aswell.
It was simple enough to knit, but the multi coloured yarn really makes it something special.
I love it.

So pretty! I love the colors, and how they perfectly blend into each other. I’ve been trying to find affordable fashion scarves, but I think I might just start knitting my own, so I can get just what I want!
It’s so nice to be creative. And you can design whatever you want. Knitting’s really not as difficult as I thought it would be.
Although I never thought it would be so addictive.

Wow! Those colours are amazing!
Wish I was clever enough to make things like that!
I used to like knitting, and it is really addictive, but my problem was that I never got the hang of following patterns. Maybe I should give it another try.
