Glad to join


Hi, my name is Margaret. I am glad to join this KAL and I plan to make at least 2 projects from "Scarf Style".
My first is the Zig Zag scarf - a Christmas gift for my teenage niece, done in her favourite colours. This scarf knits up very fast, so I already finished it, but it needs to be washed and photographed. Today, I attach work-in progress photos.
Sorry, the colours did not come out that great. In real life they are much more deep/rich and saturated, eg. Admiral (navy) is more blue than in the picture, and Raisin has more plummy-red in it.

Yarn used: Bernat Satin - makes for a nice, somewhat weighty scarf, which won't come easily undone in the wind if you just wrap it loosely around your neck.
I also made a matching hat. Photos to follow in the next few days.

Next project: Balloon scarf.

    I love yours colors! Very pretty. Is the bottom of the chevron scarf pattern naturally zig-zagged? I like that much more than the book's suggested pompoms.

    Yes, it is naturally zig-zagged at the ends. The only thing is, one end will have different number of peaks than the other (difference of 1) - naturally. Unless you choose to work 2 halves separately and then 'kitchener-stitch' them together.

    Thanks for explaining why one end comes out with more peaks than the other.

    And I agree that the natural zig-zag bottom looks much better than the pompoms (I think I'll remove mine!).

    Beautiful, beautiful piece. Congrats!
