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

  1. 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!)

    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 ;)
