Bright Stripes Finished!


This was a fun one to knit! I used Brown Sheep Lamb's Pride Worsted instead of the recommended yarn because I had some on hand. This seemed to knit up quickly because the stripes are so long!

    I am currently working on this scarf. I am using cotton classic in blues, greens and purples.
    Mostly as a way to use up all this cotton classic I have in my stash.
    It is going pretty fast.
    I love how yours turned out. It looks really nice and would be perfect with a black coat or sweater.
    I haven't made pom poms before so that should be interesting.

    it looks great! how many yards of the Brown Sheep do you think you used?

    Great job with wonderful colors. You've inspired me.

    Yes, what was your yardage?

    Hmmm, yardage, I'm not sure. I used nearly 2 full skeins of the black. I would guess I used around half a skein of each of the other colors, except for the pink (the one that stripes 3 times, instead of twice), which probably needed 3/4 of a skein. Hope that helps!

    That looks great! I hadn't really noticed that design in the book until I saw your version. It looks brilliant.

    That is a fun looking scarf. Nice and long too. I love the pompoms. Yours look perfect.
