DNA Scarf for Cynthia, started September 28th, 2006, finished November 20th, 2006, blocked December 23rd, 2006, gifted December 27th, 2006
Pattern: Dr. Montville’s Double Helix Seaman Scarf
Yarn: Red shetland wool ripped from a sweater
Needles: 4mm circulars
Pattern Notes: I got bored near the end and couldn’t bring myself to knit 4 more repeats, so I settled for a keyhole pattern and only 1 1/2 repeats. I think it looks pretty snazzy. I put the keyhole in diagonally and then crocheted around the hole to make it a bit flatter. It didn’t come out exactly as I liked, but it’s not bad.
Would I knit it again? Now that I have the hang of the pattern, I might. It was pretty hairy for a while, though. Maybe I’d knit it into a shirt or something. No more scarves! I need to go on a scarf diet.
