One completed Brick

63 pattern repeats, 378 rows and 13,608 stitches later, and Brick is completed. Whew! I think the recipient will like it very much - he's been hinting for a hand knit scarf for years, so this should suit very well. And I'm well pleased because my yarn stash is now officially 5 balls lighter!
I'll try and get some pics of the birthday boy wearing his scarf in the next couple of weeks. I dare say he'll look rather fetching!

Project specs

Garment Type: Scarf
Yarn: Jo Sharp DK Pure Wool in Brick, using 5 balls
Needles: 4.5mm
Pattern: One of my own devising, using a stitch pattern found in 400 Knitting Stitches, published by Murdoch Books

Its just beautiful. Love both the pattern and the colour. (But now feeling most inadequate with a measley 20 rows of first knitting project sitting on needles!)

Lovely scarf! I have that 400 stitches book and it is most excellent.
The lucky owner is bound to be very pleased.

Lovely scarf!!

just in case you need more wool for your stash; did you know they've opened a knitting store at 234 Collins st. It's HUGE and they have a massive sale on at the moment ;)
