Aaron makes a lot of beer. And I drink it. More to the point, my friends drink it – a lot of it. So how to pay him back? Cash seems quite beside the point. But my counterpart to his brewing is obviously knitting, so….
The DNA Scarf with Matching Tychus Hat
Patterns: Rosalind, from Magknits and Tychus from Knitty
Yarn: Elann Sierra Aran, mulberry (possibly?) and walnut (80% wool, 20% alpaca)
Mods: Made the scarf wider. Used only a single thickness of yarn for the hat.
Time to complete: 4-6 weeks. While doing other projects, of course.
Why is it a DNA scarf? Take a look from another angle….
The Tychus hat is fun and easy – all short rows. This is my second.
This project was actually 98% finished before I left Seattle. Finished the last few rows in early Jan, but then it had to be blocked. The scarf curled, of course, and the hat had this pointy elf-thing going on (blocking it around a styrofoam ball did the trick). Getting around to blocking it took longer than any other part of the process, but finally did it last week and took this pictures last Sunday.
Here’s another peek at that DNA:
