A very good friend asked me to do a commission for him. An old friend of his has been wanting this scarf for about three decades, and I’m the craftiest person he knows. I agreed to do it, partly because he’s a good friend, partly because I love a challenge, and also because I’ve been meaning to give knitting another go anyway.
I used Cascade 220 Superwash in colorways doeskin heather, gray, golden, garnet, plum purple, olive heather, and walnut heather. If I were to do it again, I might go with Wool of the Andes Superwash as it has 100 colors and I could have matched the original a bit better. But, Cascade yarns are really lovely. And, the instructions I followed are from Doctor Who Scarf.
It took about 7 weeks from start to finish. Knitting feels very comfortable now, purling…not so much, yet. The scarf will be gifted this weekend, so I’ll probably post more pictures afterwards.
