32  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / Attempting Woolly Bully's Hooded Scarf on: October 23, 2007 09:40:53 PM
A couple months back my LYS was going out of business so i bought a couple skeins of "Luxury Collection : Baby Alpaca Sport" .. it is a med blue and a light blue twisted together.. and the a couple weeks later i was at another LYS and found a free pattern by Woolly Bully yarns for a hooded scarf.  The pattern requires 4 - 200g  skeins of yarn and 10mm(15US) needles...

i have neither of those! lol..

what i DO have.. is 9US (which currently have a blanket in progress on them) or 6mm(?US)  and 5 - 100g skeins. 

The point of this long winded story is.. is it still possible to make the hooded scarf.. and have it look some what similar? 

(i've only attempted regular scarves.. and i did not follow a pattern)

any advice would be greatly appreciated.. i could even post the instructions if that would help.. oh.. and the scarf also has cables.. if that makes a difference.. i know i'm tackling a big project for my skill level.. but this yarn is SOOO soft.. and would be perfect for this pattern..

thanks Cheesy

i finished this (there will eventually be a set of four) about 2 weeks ago.  It turned out quite nice.. but now i just have to get back into the swing of things and "whip" up the other 3.. Cheesy




sorry this one is a little blurry, i don't have the greatest camera, but at least you can see the satin stitch i used for the leaves

I got the pattern for the bamboo from Sublime Stitching by Jenny Hart (she's great!)

This is my very first post of a finished object.   Cheesy

I made this tote from Lotta Jansdotter's "Simple Sewing".  The pattern was fairly easy to follow (if i would have read all the the instructions carefully). 

Enjoy.

oOO.. ahhh

little red hearts for detail

the pictures are a little "grainy" but you get the idea  Wink
