Scarf in Late Spring!!!!

What am I doing???????
Just a little something I whipped up.
It's been on my "one-day" list for a while
I wanted to see how this yarn knit up - not much better to knit up than to crochet cause of its splittiness.  But it is lovely soft and silky - darn
And this is a very quick project - only took me an afternoon

Pattern link here for the Bow Knot Scarf
Made with Patons Smoothie DK and 4.5mm needles
Centre bit is 46cm/18in
Used 46g/92m
So wonderful one ball project
As I wanted something loose around the neck - I really HATE anything firm around my neck.
So I am able to just lightly stretch this over my head and it sits a bit below the neck, just a little

I have a lot of trouble wearing scarves
Love the way people are able to wear them as accessories etc - just not me
But this is something I could wear
No fiddling or adjusting

But as I really don't like the colour, its not for me
But this will be great for my charity knitting

P.S. - there is a big project I am working on at the moment, but I want to see it completed before I share with you all.

And I'm off to Brisbane next week
Hubby's adding another notch to his Bucket List - Watching Cricket Test Match in every capital city in Australia


  1. This will be perfect to wear while filling that Bucket List next week. Have a great time. Take some pics to share. I have admired this pattern for a long time. Still trying to figure out how to crochet it. Glad to see you back around and popping in every so often.


  2. The scarf looks great. I knew what it was knit from as soon as I saw it as I have a bit in my stash too.

  3. Hi Maria, Lovely scarf. I am one of those persons who is always wearing a scarf but this one is not already in my collection. Looks like a great pattern to give it a try. The yarn you used gives it a nice twist.
    groetjes, Dorien

  4. I'm with you Maria I just can't wear scarves. Perhaps I could if it was cold enough but up here that just doesn't happen - for me anyway. I need to see how it sits so how about a demo? It might be just the thing for me too.
    Hope the weather is good for you next week. We have had a warm day today - around 27 - and it is quite cool tonight with a lovely breeze but the weather has been quite cloudy and rainy so far this Spring/ Summer so you never know what is coming next.
    Anyway enjoy the cricket and don't get sunburnt.

  5. Maria, did you get your mandala? It should have been there a couple of weeks ago...

  6. Hello there Maria! That's a very pretty little scarf. Hope you enjoy the cricket and thanks for adding me as a Rav friend :-)Ros

  7. Maria, this is lovely. The colours are so very spring and just right to keep the chill from the neck. Love it.
