a scarf idea for blogjune day 16
I’ve been working on my sky scarf since New Year’s day and I’m going to keep going until the end of the year, adding a row each day to record the colours of the Melbourne sky. Here’s another neat idea, the social knitwork scarf! It’s the second in a series of conceptual knitting projects by Lea Redmond.
“Most knitting patterns call for yarn, needles, and familiarity with abbreviations such as CO, K2tog, and St st. Typical patterns might even ask you to keep track of alternating colors on a grid. The Conceptual Knitting patterns you’ll find here are creatures of an entirely different sort.” ~ Lea Redmond
In the social knitwork scarf you use your network of friends from Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest or your blog and ask them to pick a colour and tell you why. Then you knit those colours into your scarf in the order you get tweets or comments. Lea suggests using four colours, but it’s really up to you. Think of the fun you can have!
