Need Pattern Suggestions

To Be Ripped - My So Called Scarf I posted this photo to Flickr right before I left on vacation and forgot to write about here as well. Here’s the story. My SP10 Pal gifted me two beautiful skeins of Manos del Uruguay. I immediately thought of knitting My So-Called Scarf because, after all, it calls for this particular yarn. Every time I’ve seen a photo of one of these scarves I’ve thought it was so pretty. However, when I cast on for this, immediately I had second thoughts. I gave it a few inches and just wasn’t feeling the love. I asked Drew what he thought and he didn’t like it, either. So with that confirmation, I plan to rip it. But now I am not sure what to do with it. I have some felting patterns that this could work with, but I don’t know how I feel about felting variagated yarn. The yarn feels so wonderful and I really want to make something with it, but I am just drawing a blank. Any suggestions?

  1. It’d make toasty mittens, or a great hat. That is beautiful yarn. I have some, and I was going to make that scarf, but I made a baby hat instead!

  2. Hmmm…. I like Margie’s suggestions. I think Manos is too special to felt… and I haven’t really been that fond of the felted versions that I’ve seen. It’s too soft and the texture is too lovely to get lost in the felting process.
