My completed Braided Mischief, by Teva Durham, from “Scarf Style.” Started on or about June 29, completed on July 28.
I can’t begin to tell you how much I loved this pattern — it was easy enough that it flew by and didn’t require much attention and counting, but the cable repeat offered just enough challenge that I didn’t get bored. And the yarn, Debbie Bliss Cashmerino Aran, is just lovely to work with (even in the heat).
I modified the pattern, changing the yarn and making it much, much smaller. It’s a very small (5″ x 27″) tuck-in scarf which will hopefully wind up being just right for ther person it’s going to, who is petite. I used two balls of yarn, and have one left that I think I won’t do anything with until my friend gets this in the fall.
I can’t tell you how soft this is – what a lovely texture to go around your neck!
As for this pattern, I might have to make one for myself – a nice big chunky one, more along the lines of following the pattern exactly, to wear with lighter-weight coats. Hmm. . .
