Edgar the Edgy Scarf
This is my attempt at an arty-farty picture of Edgar. Isn’t he cool? Edgar is made from the special yarn from my SP. It took longer than I expected to make it, but it was well worth it.
The pattern calls for size 8′s, but I ended up having to use size 10′s b/c it was too tight. If I make this again, I’ll probably even go up to 10 1/2′s so it will be softer and drape better. I did twelve repeats as specified for a medium Edgar b/c I wasn’t confident I had enough yarn for 17 repeats, plus 12 seemed long enough. I have a little bit of yarn left that I can use as an accent in a felted bag or something.
Thanks AGAIN, SP for the great yarn!
An interesting side-effect of making Edgar is that I’m going to be teaching another mom from Thing Two’s craft class how to make a simple triangle shawl. She was fascinated by what I was doing and started asking me questions. She just knows the knit stitch and wants to make something other than a rectangular scarf, so she asked if it was hard to make a shawl, so I told her to bring her needles & some yarn next Tuesday, and I’d show her how to do a really simple triangle.
