Sheep in Wolf’s Clothing

Neck Warmer, originally uploaded by kpwerker.

Not really a sheep or a wolf; I have no idea where that came from. But this is the first time I’ve knit something that made me realize how flexible knitted fabric can be. By which I mean there are a lot of different fabrics you can produce out of just those two stitches, knit and purl. It’s more straightforward to mess with fabric in crochet, but it’s really fun to do it in knitting, too.

Anyhoo. This is knitted herringbone stitch, in the form of a neck warmer for my friend.

Oh, but there’s another way this post is about something behaving against its nature: I took these photos with my iPhone because my real camera’s battery was dead. Not too bad for an unsophisticated phonecam.

Started: 24 Sept. 08
Finished: 11 Oct. 08
Project on Ravelry
Pattern: Herringbone Neck Warmer by Craig Rosenfeld
Yarn: Rio de la Plata Multi, 1 skein
Needles: 8mm circ
Mods: Made the buttonholes in crochet. Crocheted a slip stitch border around the whole thing to neaten up the edges.

I’m so tired I nearly fell asleep while writing this. Enough of that, I say.

Oh – love it! I love herringbone stitch. I've been bugging my sister (the knitter) to make me a scarf using this stitch… she's not yet yielded, but she will. ; )

I think it's perfectly suited to a scarflette — it's dense, this stitch!
You'll love it when your sister yields.
