The yellow one is what I was looking for when i asked about a neck warmer. I spent a day googling names to try and find what was in my mind. I finally found it when I googled bow tie scarf and that came up under katherine burgess
Mine used more than 50 grams which made me a little disgruntled but oh well. I am making a half dozen of these, the second on I am doing is in liliac, which should look nice color wise. I still need something on it somehow. The yarn is lambs pride and the color looked better on the skien so now it needs some umph and I would love to have the pattern Debby showed of her flower, hint hint Debby.
The blue one is not black but navy and other shades of blue varigated. I made a dozen dishcloths with this stitch and even Ingrid helped explain it to me when I asked for help when i was doing the washcloths. I decided i loved the way it shows off this varigation so when my friend said NO WOOL nothing scratchy i used the old red heart I had ( she is very acrylic kinda gal) i made this , it curled terrible and i wouldnt recommend acrylic at all, a B**** to block but I managed with tons and tons of blocking only it tends to start getting distorted out of shape. I worked longer on the damn blocking then the knitting.
I am odd, I never usually take a pattern and do exactly what it says or I take bits and pieces and I like to do my own thing. It was natural for me to take a washcloth and say this should be a scarf, the path least traveled on I guess.
I wanted to make him the chicken hat since I think everyone needs more to life than the run of the mill everyday blend in with the crowd look on life. Nothing wrong with a different perspective occasionally. My friend thought i was horrible, but i still like that plucked chicken. This is also the same friend who said I want to buy a boob neck pillow for my BIL or he is going to steal my husbands you made. She sees nothing wrong with a boob neck pillow but wont allow her hubby to wear a naked chicken on his head, whats up with that?
