Fisherman’s rib takes a bit longer to knit, but it is worth it.

Yarn: 150 gram 2-ply Sirri C16 and 100 gram Kitten Mohair from Sandnes Garn nr 5836.

Needle size: 8 mm

CO 25 sts using both yarns. Knit the first two and the last two sts of every row.
Work in firsherman’s rib for 180 cm. This tutorial shows how I prefere to knit the fisherman’s rib.

Blue Scarf

 

Holiday and a Blue Scarf

For the next two weeks I am on holiday. Any orders sent to Faroe Knitting during this period will be processed the second week of September

I have started a new project, a blue scarf in Sirri 2-ply and Kitten Mohair. If anyone wants to knit along, I have 25 sts on 8 mm needles. Every row begins and ends with K2, and the rest of the row is fisherman’s rib, so it is very easy, and the mohair gives it a nice look and softness.

I had two balls of Kitten Mohair from Sandnes in my stash (colour 5836) which I have mixed with the colour closest to it in Sirri (C16) I hope this will be enough for a good long scarf.

Almost finished the knitting part

The pattern for this sweater is from the book Knitting with Icelandic Wool. It is called Æði.

Instead of the yarn in the pattern, I use Sirri  3-ply Blue C16, White and Light Gray.
I am knitting size XS on needles 8 mm, since it has 109 stitches, and I know this should fit me (Size M) in Sirri yarn. And then size L for the length of sleeves and body.
