I knitted this scarf about a year ago and I finally managed to write down the pattern and put it online. Well, that is actually not true, I made a lovely chunky diagonally knitted cowl on my trip to Oxford but I decided to use the picture of the old one to illustrate the pattern. The colours are more cheerful, the fact that it is knitted on the bias comes out better because of the stripes and, lets be honest, it might take another year to get a decent picture taken, the weather needs to be right, there should already be some daylight, no football game scheduled (we live in England, there is always a football match going on somewhere)…
When I linked the pattern on ravelry with my already existing project, I realised that I hadn’t actually knitted a full rectangle as I pretended in the written pattern. Ups. Never mind, the fact that the pattern is for a rectangle it makes it more adjustable for other projects, not just for cowls. And the Oxford cowl at least was really knitted as I had written it down.
And I am pleased as punch to say that I had already over 100 downloads in 30 hours. I know that is not actually that much compared to other patterns on ravelry. But it is still cool to see that my patterns look interesting enough to be downloaded by someone.
Love it! The colors are so beautiful!
Thank you. I find them particularly nice on those gray winter days.
It’s lovely – I’m not surprised it’s being downloaded so much. 🙂
Thank you. I guess, considering the number of people on ravelry it is nothing but you can definitely reach more people than through a knitting class 🙂
