Aslaug Scarf

Monday, July 20th, 2015

I finished this scarf a few weeks ago but had to keep it a secret as it was a present. It’s handpun, by me!, from Finnish humbug.

Being so pleased with how it turned out I knew I definitely wanted to make something with it. The pattern is a free pattern from Ravelry, the Aslaug Scarf by Camille Coizy. My yarn turned out more like arran than double knit so the finished scarf is a heavier version which I knitted on 5mm needles. If I’d remembered I would have measured it but I forgot 🙁  Here it is being blocked.

Knitting not being my best skill I did struggle a little until I’d got a couple of pattern repeats under my belt and I understood it a little better.

It looks lovely with my sheep shawl pin from Harry.

And it looks equally at home worn as a scarf rather than a wrap.

The best bit? my friend really loves it 🙂 and I feel inspired to do more knitting.
