Love is all you need

YIP 5.365 All You Need Is Love

Now that the above pictured wedding shawl and man scarf have arrived at their final destination, I feel safe in telling you about the scarf. The shawl was already blogged about here.

When I found out that Stonecutter SJ was getting married, I decided to knit her a shawl (with her knowledge, of course) and thought that it would be cute to knit her husband-to-be a scarf in their wedding colors, which were luckily pretty manly – navy blue and turquoise. I also thought that entrelac in mostly navy with just a shot of the turquoise here and there would probably be better for a guy than something that had the colors more evenly distributed.

Thus – a modification of Danica was born. I wanted to do smaller squares and have more of them on each tier, so I cast on 32 stitches (for four base triangles 8 stitches each). The scarf wound up easily 8″ wide and about 60″ long.
