I’m so in love with this yarn that I wrestle to cease myself from winding off one more skein with a view to start a brand new undertaking. I’ve simply started work on the Happenstance scarf by Romi Hill having seen my buddy Miranda sporting her personal actually lovely model on the Unravel present in Farnham lately and have chosen 3 of the Gofannon shades to make this hanging scarf – pictured beneath. The undertaking is from the Kate Davies Book of Haps which options patterns for 13 shawls and a captivating perception into the historical past of Shetland Haps together with attractive images and brilliantly written sample directions. there are a minimum of 5 tasks I wish to make from this e-book!

It took me greater than 2 years to make my final knitted scarf (Leftie by Martina Behm) so hopefully this one might be faster!
Anyway – the rationale for this put up is de facto to share with you a free sample I’ve written for a stripy crochet cowl I accomplished simply earlier than we whisked off to Edinburgh Yarn Festival. To make the cowl you have to 2 shades of 4ply (roughly 400m of every yarn) though in fact you could possibly use as many shades as you want. I used Gofannon 4ply in fact!
I’d like to see some pics if anybody chooses to make the undertaking. You can ship them to [email protected]
