After I saw Annie's and Margaret's gorgeous scarves, I decided to make one too. This pattern is so beautiful. Upon a quick glance, it looks somewhat similar to the Tiger Eye Scarf, but it is much easier to knit in my opinion. I did not try to memorize the pattern, but after a few repeats, I could pretty much figure out what to do next based on the previous row. It also knit up faster than Tiger Eye.

看到Annie瑪格她們織的美美的圍巾, 心動手癢也來織一條. 這條圍巾看起來跟虎眼好像有點像, 織起來可比虎眼簡單多了. 雖然沒有刻意去背花樣, 織到後來看了上一段也可以猜出再下來要怎麼織. 織起來比虎眼快呢!

Column of Leaves Scarf 2

I wanted the two ends of the scarf to be symmetrical, so I worked the scarf from two ends and then joined them together. Each half has 19 pattern repeats. I had planned to graft the two halves using the Kitchener stitch. Well, I was only about 1/3 of the way through when I spotted a big hole. I could not figure out what went wrong. The lace border also presented some difficulties for grafting. I ripped back the join, almost dropped a stitch in the process. After all that, I decided to just do the safe and easy three needle bind-off. Although it is not as seamless as Kitchener stitch, I know I can do it without dropping any stitches... :D

為了圍起來時兩端花樣能對稱, 我也是各織兩片, 然後中間縫合. 每一半織了19個花樣重複. 不過這次偷吃步, 中間不是真的縫合的啦! 這次是用 three needle bind-off, 很明顯的有一條線, 不像縫合的可以幾乎看不出來. 其實本來是有用縫的喔! 縫不到三分之一就發現跑出一個大洞來, 研究了半天研究不出個所以然來, 只好乖乖地拆回去. 拆的過程中還漏針, 差點救不回來. 想想算了, 反正中間的地方通常是圍在脖子後面, 看不到... (也是懶啦... :D) 用 three needle bind-off 雖然沒有那麼好看, 可是不出錯就好啦!

It is pretty. Lace scarf is easy and fast to knit. The joint is good.

好看耶,用這個顏色織,花樣很清楚,而且很適合冬天搭配衣服.
我今早打電話給Tess,感覺她好像是個人工作室,染的線沒有大量生產,她還說,可以幫我指定染色,這有點難倒我了,實在沒概念,要請她幫我染什麼顏色,不過看了你的kiri shawl,她染得真的很好看,我想會試試看,請她先幫我染一些吧.

這條圍巾看起來好有立體感
那葉子好像一片一片貼上去的, 真美~
這條圖樣用素色的跟段染的打起來都很好看!

Maybe you could've knit from the center with provisional cast on! I think the joint would be less conspicuous than now. Well, who am I to talk? I always take the easy way out.

漂亮耶!找一天把妳織好的圍巾拿出來排排照吧!一定很壯觀!!

终于忍不住冒泡-实在是看的太久了,有好几个月了吧
每一条围巾,每一条披肩都那么美
我也忍不住开始学棒针了
呵呵,我是celia的粉丝

顺便说,那件菠萝开衫钩针衣我用了3团多点(一团50g)

To Handknit168, Jen da Purse Ho, PlumStitches:
Thank you for your compliments!! :) I love this pattern, and I am satisfied with how it turned out.

Annie,
本來有點擔心這個綠色會使膚色顯黃, 現在看看好像還不錯哩! :D
我也沒有請人指定染色過, 不過最近有在想來玩染色耶…

瑪格,
這組線帶點絲的光澤, 所以看起來會有立體感. 想說是葉子嘛, 就挑綠色的來打囉!

Shumei,
Welcome! I thought about using provisional cast-on, but decided to start from the ends because I wanted the leaves to go up toward the center, not downward. Well, if I want a particular result, I’ve got to work for it, right?! And believe me, if there’s an easier way out, I will be taking it with you! :D

Tcknit,
嘻嘻… 再加上以前織的那一堆Fun Fur圍巾, 是很壯觀喔!
現在想說, 有事沒事就來給它織一條圍巾, instant gratification, 沒有用的到母親節啦, 聖誕節啦, 生日啦, 這種需要送禮的時候就很好用… :D :D

Mauve,
粉絲哦? 不好意思啦! 希望和編織同好一起來交流, 互相學習才是真的.
其實棒針沒有那麼難, 希望看到你的作品喔!
