February challenge – Going to Skye scarf

Based on Cherry Heart’s Going to Wales scarf, this one has been rather more locally made…

I am not very proficient at reading written patterns so it was lucky for me that some kind soul had drawn out a chart for it on Ravelry. There is a slight error on the chart which shows the loop between trebles on row three as three chains whereas the written pattern says five, but it was a godsend. Oh and I did miss out the edging row as to be honest the edges seem fine as they are. Made in Louisa Harding Amitola (80% wool, 20% silk) on a 4mm hook. The colour is number 136 which seems to be called ‘Hook’ for no obvious reason. I thought that the yarn was 4-ply and although it is described as DK on-line I was not short on yardage at all.

As this post is my February challenge I should explain what was new for me – I have never made a ‘lacy’ or open-work pattern before, I had to match the colour sequence over two 50g balls of yarn, and I did have to read a written pattern even though I had help from the chart. That’ll do for now!
