I was planning to knit the Black Pearls next, but I knitted the Hourglass instead.
The book said Koigu Kersti, but I used 3 hanks of Koigu KPM (grayish purple) for MC and 1 hank of Koigu KPPPM (yellow mix) for CC.
It was my first knitting with Koigu yarn, and I liked their delicate colors.
I made a modification from the book, which is repeat the pattern all the way to the end instead of work K2, P2 rib for 15” in the middle part. Many hourglasses!
I didn’t notice using 2 strands of yarns held together until start reading the pattern… which I don’t like doing it! But I like the finished scarf, it made all the effort of untangling two strands of yarn worthwhile.
Seems like winter is already over in L.A., but I want to wear the scarves I knitted from this book until I get sweaty!
