FO 2005-19: Multidirectional Scarf OSS*
Yarn: 50gm each, Lana Grossa Meilenweit Multiringel #5040 & Regia 4fädig #1056
Needles: Addi Turbo Circulars #4
Pattern: Iris Schreier's MD Scarf pattern from the Multidirectional Knitting Yahoo!Group
Dimensions: 5-1/2" x 57" blocked
The pattern calls for a heavier weight yarn, but after buying the self-striping sock yarn from Jeni, I thought I'd give this pattern a go by alternating the sock yarn with some mostly-black Regia from my stash.
I swatched few times to figure out how to change colors and carry the yarn so the edges and the transitions looked neat. After that it was a quick knit--garter st all the way.
The good news is I still have enough Lana Grossa and black yarn to make 5 more. I'm not sure I'll make 5 more, but it's worth noting. They'd make nice Christmas presents, don't you think?
*OSS: Ilona saw my MD knitting at SnB a couple of weeks ago and said, "What's that, a multidirectional scarf of some sort?" Exactly. Since then, this project was the "Multidirectional Scarf Of Some Sort".
