The “Aya” Scarf, a design project of my own, has taken me far longer than I would have hoped. I thoroughly enjoyed working with this yarn, Noro’s “Aya”, although it does tend to break fairly easily so watch your strength when pulling out knots, etc. The color progression was fun to behold, and I did not have to work too hard to execute the pattern and come up with a satisfying result. Hopefully you will agree. The pattern:

I want to introduce you (if you already don’t know about it) to a book I have been using for all of my design projects: Knit Notes by Nadine Curtis, the founder of Be Sweet, a yarn manufacturer and distributor of knitting patterns.

DSCF7396 DSCF7399It is a great book with ideas for inspiration, how to use the book, project pages where you can document your work with a swatch, materials, quantity of yarn needed, needles used, embellishments, other tools, gauge, body measurements, finished measurements, and pages for pattern notes with a spot for posting a picture of the finished project.
