My ‘knit something for charity each month’ campaign is going well. This month I have used up the pink wool in my stash [there wasn’t much!] to make three scarves. Fat Dormouse suggested I might like to join Vicki’s campaign to make pink scarves for women fighting the battle with breast cancer. [details here]
July is a busy month – so just three scarves, but all different patterns. The first one was from my brilliant Debbie Bliss Book [blogged about here]
The second was simply a moss stitch with a fringe, the yarn was dyed in shades of pink, deep pink, peach and violet. The third was a crochet ‘ruffle’ design – in deep pink with a pale pink edging. It came out very similar to the ‘sea-lettuce’ scarves I knitted a few years back.
Here are my three scarves, on a folding chair in the garden, styled as per Debbie Bliss!
I loved doing the DB pattern – it is a sort of ‘fan-and-feather’ design. She uses two colours to emphasis the rippling stripes, but I think it works well in one colour too.
