Okay, so this year I’m going to Finland for Christmas. I’ve been really looking forward to it since I didn’t get to go last year (had to work Christmas Eve and that’s when we celebrate Christmas so yeah…). Anyway, I’m really excited about going and it occurred to me that I didn’t have a scarf that was appropriate for the weather. It rarely gets cold enough to need a thick scarf over here, so all the ones that I have are made from fingering weight.
I had the yarn in my stash and whenever I looked at it, I thought of Christmas because of the color. That’s the color of the decorations my mom uses on our tree (it’s just not Christmas without those exact decorations).
And so I came up with this pattern. It’s fun to knit and it goes really quickly because it’s made from thick yarn and big needles (5,5mm needles are very big for me, I usually use 2,5mm!).
It’s available for sale on Ravelry. You don’t need to be a member to buy it. How cool is that? But really, if you’re a knitter or crocheter, you probably already are!
And finally, I want to say a huge thank you to my testers. You guys are awesome.
