stripes and bobbles

My version of the Stripes and Bobbles scarf from Scarfstyle is finally complete. The stripes waited a very long time for the bobbles. I used Encore to make the two stripes in charcoal gray and one black. My CO, with a US9, was 8 for the gray stripes and 6 for the black. The bobbles were made with Rowan All Season Cotton in royal blue.

The directions for the knot, or bobble, are to wrap the yarn around a knitting needle or pencil six times on each side of the stripe. After several unattractive bobbles, I finally found a good method. Using one double pointed needle I did the six wraps on one side, left the dpn in place while using a second dpn to do the wraps on the other side. Once complete with yarn tied off, I pulled out both dpns. The result is what you see in the pictures. It hangs pretty and is warm - can't wait to wear my scarf!

    Nice colors: I love brown and blue together. And when I made mine I improvised the bobbles too.

    I LOVE it!! I think that I'll never ever have to buy another scarf for the rest of my life. I want this one too. How hard was it?

    The stripes were very easy as they were thin and made an easy travel project. Once I got the hang of the bobbles, they were okay.
