I wanted to try out the stitch pattern for the Kiri shawl (which can be found on the sidebar of All Tangled Up ) and have something usable at the same time. So, voila, another head scarf for the collection, this time with extra sun-reflecting properties.
I used Rowan 4ply cotton and really enjoyed the pattern. Thanks very much Polly.
My only reservation is the edging. When I embark on the full scale version in Orkney Angora I will have plenty of time to work out what I want to do about that. I would like to find an alternative to starting the edging on a half-open leaf. I have a few ideas swimming around so I'll see if I can adapt or come up with something.
This should be a nice clear picture of the stitch detail.
This is the heid bunnet in action. Yes, I look like
a First Communicant
a woman with pants on her head
a Puritan maiden
a schoolgirl from yesteryear
a peasant dancer
a knitting fanatic
but guess what - I LIKE IT!
Real Kiri will probably start tomorrow, all being well. x K
