Pattern: Hourglass Eyelet Scarf, by Chrissy Gardiner, from Holiday 2008 Interweave Knits
Yarn: Elsebeth Lavold Hempathy in Aquamarine
Time Elapsed: Four weeks
Notes: The scarf measures 70" long by about 6" wide. Knit with a thin yarn, it has a lacy texture that maintains its shape well. The pattern calls for size 7 needles, but I used size 4 needles to achieve the lace pattern. Once I figured out how the eyelet cables are created, it wasn't difficult to knit them and I enjoyed the repetitive pattern.
The pattern is so pretty, now I know why it's called the "Hourglass Eyelet Scarf".
My reaction when realizing it took four weeks to knit this relatively uncomplicated scarf.
You can bet that I have already started planning my next project. It is a bit daring, it will take a heck of a lot longer that four weeks, and I can't wait to get started on it. I'll reveal more soon ...
