2-skein knit triangle scarf, free pattern from Lion.  In some random color of Homespun I grabbed on impulse.  

The original photo was pretty dull (brown shawl + brown sofa = invisible Tongue) so I messed with the lighting on that last picture.  Here's a closeup of the pattern that hopefully shows the color more accurately.

This was my first major knitterly undertaking and I'm pretty pleased with it.  And it's so nice to wear at work when the air conditioning is blasting and it's the middle of winter....

very nice - would you mind sharing the link for the pattern?

I like it!

Can you fill us in on some details? What kind of needles and what size? How big is it?

I too would be interested in the pattern!

I've made the exact same shawl about 2 years ago - and it's still one of my favorite knits. Mine lives at work to ward off the AC in the summer and help out when the heating doesn't seem to want to work in the winter. And while I'm not normally a fan of lionbrands homespun, this pattern is just perfect for it, I think. So nice and cuddly and soft and stripes beautifully!

Here's the linky to mine Smiley


I can't really tell - did we use the same colour? I bought mine as mill ends so I have no idea what the name of the colour is or anything like that.

Okay, found the link! 


You might have to sign up for their e-mails to access the patterns.  Oh well, if it's spam, it might as well be yarn-related, right?  Cheesy

Artsygal, I can't tell if ours is the same color or not - my yarn came from the clearance bin and I tossed the labels so I don't know what it's called  Embarrassed  Yours is beautiful and much less wonky around the edges than mine!

Homespun isn't my fave either.  It looks nice and it's very soft and warm, but it's a pain to work with - there's a thin thread wrapped around the rest of the fuzzy strand and my needles kept wanting to get tangled between them.  But it does look pretty.

Onecraftybitch, it was done with size 13 (9mm) needles and a random crochet hook for the edge - pattern calls for K (7mm), I think I might have used an H because it was all I had - and it's about as long on the top edge as I am tall, so about 5 feet 4 inches or around 163 cm.  When I wear it the point of the triangle covers my butt.

Thank you everyone for all the positive feedback!  I feel all warm and fuzzy!   Kiss

Thanks for the link and the details. I just picked up some more homespun ( it was on sale) so I may have to start this.
