I made this scarf/shawl from one yarn cake of King Cole Curiosity DK that I bought on the market with a 4mm hook (I think). The shade is Merlin. I found the pattern online here. scarf pattern and it was really easy but interesting because of the colour changes. I might give it to Helen for her birthday but will probably make more as ongoing projects as they’re undemanding when life is busy, and useful as gifts.
Update December 15 – I’ve decided to give this to Julie as I ended up making Helen a necklace. I think (hope) Julie will like the colours.
18.12.18 I gave this to Julie as I thought the colours were more hers. She loved it, and Helen got a necklace.
