A sample of Loreley

I’d been chatting with Ivete Tecedor, the owner of http://www.chiagu.com and she needed to get another sample made of her Loreley Scarf. I offered to make the sample by knitting during my subway commute.

Loreley is available as a kit that includes 8 colors of Koigu KPPPM yarn and the pattern (size 6 needles not included). This sample is brighter & more colorful than the original sample which I believe resides at Knitty City. That scarf is made up of dark colors and has been wildly popular with the customers.

The scarf is a quick and easy knit if you know the following techniques: knit 2 together, yarn over and alternating 2 colors. Koigu is fantastic to work with – colors that seem to be thrown together on the skein look totally fabulous once knitted up. Ivete puts together great color combinations – it’s her favorite yarn and she has a long history with it.

So now that’s done I’m back to the drawing board. I’m in the middle of revising my own design for Baah yarns 🙂
