Rainbow ripple scarves

These are made from some rather lovely (and expensive!) lambswool.

Made in Kinross 4-ply superfine lambswool in Navy (18) and a set of Rainbow mini-skeins.

Each scarf took 10g each of the seven rainbow colours plus 30g of Navy. They are made on a 4mm hook and are 3 ripples wide, and 6 rainbow-repeats long. They measure 124cm x 19cm, and weigh 100g.

Pip Colourwork scarf

I have waited ages for a sunny day to take a photo of this and used a brief window of opportunity this morning…

Made in Baa Ram Ewe’s Pip Colourwork in Bishopthorpe (020), North Sea (026) and Brass Band (021) on a 4mm hook. The wave pattern is Attic 24’s neat ripple pattern and the scarf is 3 ripples wide (using a starting chain of 45) and 45 wide stripes long. It weighs 107g and took about 35g of each of the three colours of yarn.

I believe this yarn is now discontinued, which seems a shame as it was available in a lovely range of colours, and is one of the few genuinely British yarns – spun and dyed in Yorkshire.

Bee scarf

You may remember the lovely balls of Jamiesons Shetland wool that I was given for Christmas, and if so the colourway of this scarf will come as no surprise:

Made in Jamiesons Shetland spindrift Mogit (107), Moorit (118) and Scotch Broom (1160)on a 4mm hook. The wave pattern is Attic 24’s neat ripple pattern and the scarf is 3 ripples wide (starting chain of 45) and 45 wide ripples long. It took most of 6 x 25g balls of yarn although obviously I could have made it longer and used it all.

I think there is a definite bee vibe going on there!
