I finished this Neckerchief/shawl/scarf for my little miss and in time for her birthday
It was a great piece to work, I really love the little 'spikes' and the asymmetric shape. The shape makes it lets it wrap beautifully around the shoulders and the soft acrylic I used works really well with this pattern
When the neckerchief is laid out flat on the floor it really does look like Dorothy the Dinosaurs tail, the way the asymmetric shape curls at the end (as you can see in the photo below) is a lovely design feature of this pattern also.
You can find the pattern by May Cheang Here on Ravelry there is a small cost for the pattern but it is well worth the purchase price as it is really well written.
I used 2.8 balls of Lincraft Surprise yarn and a 4.5mm hook
I have not blocked the finished piece, as I like the little spikes to curl.
Unblocked it measures 125cm x 116cm x 56cm
it weighs approx 270gms
this is a good size for my daughter who is 11yrs old and should be a useful size for many years.
I first blogged about this piece here
and my Ravelry page on this piece can be found here
I hope you are all having a creative week
