Through time, I’ve been more and more fond of knitting lace project : it’s transparent, light, and great to wear. No surprise then that I felt in love with that Tiger eye scarf (yes, ze eyes of ze tiger! ):) (you’ll find the pattern here).
It’s easy to knit, but requires a lot of focus though.
I didn’t really understand why it’s named this way : tiger eye scarf, because I saw more of a fox face than tiger eye, but well, does it really matter ? 🙂
I repeated to pattern 25 times in total, and trust blocking your work to make it look pretty. Before blocking it looks a bit weird.
I choosed a skein of “Mapple” hand -dyed yarn, (available here), in 75% superwash merinos, 20% nylon and 5 % stellia
Needles size 3,5mm, and a bit of patience later, controled by my mini inspector, here is how my tiger eye scarf looks :
It’s very light, thin, and quite long after being blocked. I doubled it around my neck to keep me warm and it was perfet.
I really like that tiger eye scarf !
