Crafting for the weather: Jitterbug Angel Scarf

I gravitated toward this yarn from across the aisle at the recent Sydney Craft and Quilting Fair. It's so vibrant!
Keeping in mind Kate's scarf from a while back, I was on the look out for nice, light weight yarn. Then when I got home to check her Ravelry details, I realised that I'd bought the exact same yarn as her. I'm totally ripping her style! I guess imitation is the greatest form of flattery.
The yarn is Colinette Jitterbug in Wasabi Squeeze. Now, while this is a lovely finished scarf and the yarn was nice to work with, I really didn't enjoy making it. The whole scarf is made with double trebles and it took about one third of the scarf to form nice rhythm, yarn over, two, three, pull through, hook one, two, three, four, repeat.

I'm currently hooking a lovely shawl also made with Jitterbug in Salted Caper and thoroughly enjoying how well it's coming together. Maybe more weather appropriate creating will follow?

Details Ravelled here.


  1. Love it! So fitting for the windy, wet weather we are enduring. Gorgeous pattern and colour.

  2. I love it and I am admiring your skill. I am knitting a scarf at the moment, but i hardly know how to knit, so mine is all knit stitch. I'm envious of your pretty knitting.

  3. I love the colour and the stitch - all so pretty and dainty. It will be a great addition to your wardrobe. I must give knitting a go some time.

  4. This is completely fabulous!!! Gorgeous colour, and the lacey stitch is so delicately lovely...
    I also looove your cape/jacket in the previous post, an extremely fab and stylish stashbusting effort there. Thank you so much for your comment on my blog too
