It took me almost two months to make, but my slightly large (1.90cm) and wide scarf (50cm), is ready to wear. I am incredibly pleased with the result. The colours combine beautifully and I love the ripple pattern. The girls think it looks a bit like a Missoni scarf, which off course is music to my ears :-). The big advantage being that my wrap is much more affordable!
I used dark blue, black, denim, cobalt and grey wool from the acrylic 'soft' line by Zeeman, a light blue acrylic/wool mix 3.5 by Phildar and an incredibly soft grey wool with a silver thread by Phildar, called Strass Light (argent). I wish you could see the silver thread on the photo's, but I can assure you it's the touches of silver that make the scarf special!
If you are interested in making a scarf or wrap with this pattern, you can find several tutorials on the internet. I prefer the tutorial by Lucy from Attic 24. Simply because you can't go wrong.
The photo's below were taken on my roof terrace. On a clear day the view is amazing, but today the city centre of Rotterdam, with it's tall buildings, disappeared into the mist.
I felt a bit like Mary Poppins, being on top of the roof, waiting for the chimney sweepers to arrive and do their rooftop dance :-)
Wishing you a wonderful weekend!
