I skein of each does me for TWO hats. With extra rust red left over, since it's only used for the earflaps.

Be sure to post complete pictures!  Cheesy

I used Alafoss Lopi, for that ultimate fresh-from-the-slums yarn look. I thought it'd be super-scratchy but it's nice and warm. I found a good orange for it, so I guess it depends on where you go. Smiley

Well, I needed a hat for wintertime approaching way up North here in Canadia, and I couldn't dare to resist knitting this.

Knitting + watching too much Naruto = "I AM A NINJA" morse code.

Dude, I hear you. I've knit a hat, one of two Hurry Up Spring Armwarmers, and am now knitting a scarf. Wool and alpaca are my current Fibres Of Choice.  Cheesy
37  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / I do require... a SCARF on: October 09, 2005 12:52:20 PM
Hey everyone!

So, the deal is - I have some beautiful yarn sent to me by a friend, and I absolutely must knit a scarf with it. The problem is - I tried knitting Mom's Sophisticated Scarf from SnB Nation with it, but the gauge is just odd, the stitches are too wide and thus would not be a warm scarf. I tried altering gauges and such to make it work, but bah.

SO - I've come to you witty and awesome crafters with a challenge - can you guys help me scour the web for a good scarf pattern?

Rules - I'd like something along the same lines as the Mom's Sophisticated - that is, a relatively wide and long scarf, with SOME sort of a pattern to it - whether it be an interesting rib, some sort of basketweave pattern, whatever - nothing too difficult but will make it a little more interesting then, say, a 2x2 rib or garter stitch.

I mean, if there's something you think I might like, post it anyway - I'd love to see as many possible patterns as possible!

Here's the yarn specs:

Rowan felted tweed
50% merino wool / 25% alpaca / 25% viscose/rayon
gauge: 22 sts and 30 rows = 4 in in st st (size 5 US/3.5mm/9 UK needles)
Link to the Rowan site with the yarn itself.

Thank you all in advance! <3

I am -so- looking forward to wearing mine when winter comes. I knit it in August, for heaven's sake. It's just to WARM yet to wear it outdoors for a long period of time! ;____;

Ohmy goodness, MY Serenity premiere...

I'd like to note that I went with 4 of my hat recipients, so there were 5 of us in a row in the theatre with matching hats. When we walked in, we got a lot of comments. "Whoa, the Jayne hat crew!" "Dude... CUNNING hats!" and my favorite, "Jayne! The man they call Jayne!"

My friend Joel made a quick annoucement before the movie that I would make the hats for a price. And YES, Joel and I both noticed the very quick hat scene, and Joel being the outspoken fellow he is. shouts "IT'S THE HAT" and the audience(being downtown and opening night, all geeky and fan-crazy) lauighed and cheered.

It was one of the most epic and awesome movie premieres I have ever attended.  Grin
