Parallelogram Scarf


#1

Hi everyone. I recently discovered the awesomeness that is this website and forum. Has anyone else started the parallelogram scarf from Field Guide #5? I’m an idiot and bought Freia Lace instead of fingerling. Guess my scarf will be both lighter and longer.

Oh, that should be lovely! Do post a photo when you can.

:slight_smile:️. Thank you. I like brighter colors than the ones offered by MDK so I went these:

Not yet – I ordered the yarn from the MDK shop this afternoon. None of the original kit color combos interested me much, but the recent stock of singles spoke to me.

I am mulling the idea of using two of the same skeins and starting one from the inside and the other from the outside. Any thoughts? There are only five skeins left in the Shop, so I have to act quickly.

There may be a meeting of the same color in the center of each?
Another solution would be to reel off the first layer of color from one ball, break the yarn, and start both from the outside. When the adjusted ball begins to run out, join in the reeling end with a splice. That would make the fabric fade-y.

A I think that would work. Pretty too.


#8

Interesting idea. I will look at the yarn again. Thanks.

Thank you both for the input. I just placed the order for two balls of nautilus. It will be a great project for the New Year.

My yarn arrived today…in record time I might add. Thank you MDK elves.
Can’t wait to get started.

I did buy the fingering, but my scarf, while quite gorgeous, is going to be way longer than 70”. I’m wondering if the yarn in the shop is actually Sport weight, not fingering. Is anyone else having the same experience?
