Mix Sirri with Kitten Mohair in this soft blue scarf.
Fisherman’s rib takes a bit longer to knit, but it is worth it.
The finished scarf measures 24X180 cm.
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.
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.
Try out this easy pattern.
You need 200 g Sirri 2-ply C16 and 40 cm circular needles size 3 mm and 6 mm.
The pattern is written in both an English and a Danish version.
Fríða Gylfadóttir in Iceland has started a project of knitting a 17 km long scarf. It is supposed to be a warm tie between two communities, when it reaches through a new tunnel, that will open in the fall.
Everybody can contribute to the scarf, which is 20 cm wide and – so far – 7,4 km long.
