Exchequered

Pattern: Exchequered by Alice Bell
Made for: Caroline
Yarn: Filatura Di Crosa 501

I started it in the fall and vowed to finish it as part of finish-or-frog. I did finish on February 1, as promised, but it has taken until now to set up a suitable photo shoot with my sister. I guess we’re both really busy.

I’m really pleased with how it turned out. I didn’t use the chart in the pattern because I didn’t feel like printing it, and I like that the two halves don’t match.

It ended up being about 6.5 feet long, long enough for her to wrap around her face as many times as she wants.

I think she likes it too!

  1. That’s awesome. I tried double knitting a month or two ago and didn’t enjoy it at all, so I give you a lot of credit for sticking with this project all the way to the end. The FO was worth the effort!

  2. Awesome awesome scarf!!!! I love the colors and the shapes. I will make this someday.

    Your sisters glasses are fun! I just started wearing glasses last year so I am obsessed with all the fun, funky cool ones!
