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

Specs:
Patterns: Rosalind, from Magknits and Tychus from Knitty
Yarn: Elann Sierra Aran, mulberry (possibly?) and walnut (80% wool, 20% alpaca)
Needles: yes
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:

Thanks! It was pretty fun to knit. Hopefully fun to wear, too.

The DNA scarf pattern appears to be lost to the ether. You wouldn’t happen to have another copy of it?

I also was looking for the DNA scarf pattern. Any chance you have the copy of it still?

Thanks!

I have the chunky pattern but I’m looking for a copy of the DK chart if anyone has it!

I should have replied here earlier. The pattern was originally published by Magknits, an online knitting magazine that has since gone poof. The pattern is now available as a free download on ravelry (but you need to sign up). The designer’s blog is http://slippedstitch.blogspot.com/, but the pattern link there just sends you back to ravelry.

I still recommend the pattern!
