It means "little strawberry" in Italian ;o).

This scarf was so inspiring to knit! I used the Danica pattern found on Knitty, but based the scarf ends on the fringed Lady Eleanor. The keyhole was an addition that I thought of going into the second half of the scarf- a desperate (but functional!) attempt to be able to wear a scarf this thick in North Florida weather. I didn't want doubled fabric over my neck, so wrapping or looping the scarf was out of the question.

As for the specs, I used 3 balls of Patons SWS in the colorway "natural geranium" on size 8 needles. I started and finished this scarf in three days- and it's the easiest possible knit for the amount of satisfaction and the WOW factor that I've gotten!


So what do you gals think?

I was shocked at how quickly it went by also- but once you get through a couple of repeats, it's so repetitive and soothing (what knitting should be all about!) that the knitting is over before you know it. And it helps that the color changes come on so unexpectedly that it keeps one guessing.

Ah, I was planning on putting the Lady Eleanor fringe on my Danica scarf, as well. Now I know it'll look fabulous and I'm definitely going ahead with it.

Looks wonderful!

Most definitely a WOW scarf!!  Shocked  Love the colors and how they fit into the pattern!  How does a yarn know how to do that??!!  I will have to try that SWS yarn sometime.

Crocheting is like prostitution.  First you do it for love, and then for a few close friends, and then for money.  Maybe that is why they call us Hookers?

I don't think I've seen any Lady Eleanors with fringe, but I love how delicate it is. And I have got to get myself some SWS. Good job!
