Ok, so my dad is from Iran, and next summer (god and the political climate willing) almost the whole family will be visiting over there for the first time ever. I've got 5 aunts, 2 uncles and immumerable cousins of various type and size to meet
The only aunt I've met so far is my aunt Soghra, who tried, despite language barriers and different handed-ness, to teach me to knit almost ten years ago. I recently (about half a year ago) actually went out and learned
, and have a hat, a sock, a scarf and a blanket under my belt now, but I'd really like to make something for Soghra and my other aunts for when I go. I was thinking some kind of a lighter scarf or cowl that they could use to cover their hair, I saw this and got the idea: LINK, YO!
but I'd like to get some more variation in my gifts. That one, I know, would look awesome on Soghra and be just her style
but from what I hear, my family is pretty progressive (to the point of occasional jail time
) so I'd like something more modern for the cousins who are in their mid-twenties like me
Any ideas, or patterns I can ab/use?
