As soon as I saw Nymphalidea on Knitty I wanted to make one. I found 2 skeins of sock wool, one a semisolid plum, the other a variegated deep plum. I used the variegated for the wedges and the semisolid for the welts. (This photo came out a lot more blue than the actual scarf.
I loved the result. It is a lovely scarf to wear and was fun to make.
After I finished I decided to make my ‘Louisa Scarf’, to go with Doc Martins using the same pattern with some modifications.
- I used the same size needles but Aran weight silk/cotton
- I made the wedges stocking stitch and used an increase that doesn’t leave a hole.
- I replaced the increases with decreases and decreases with increases in the second half.
- I swapped the side that the wedges were on by making the middle welt one row wider.
The result is a good casual scarf to go with my boots.
