Knit, knit, knit …..

That all you hear in my house at the moment! I used this pattern to knit a scarf for a friend a few years back and I always wanted to use this pattern to knit a knee rug. Well I did.

Lucky for me, after scratching in my stash, I found 14 x 50g balls, colour 101, of “Joy” from African Expression from the same dye lot. The yarn is made from the perfect combination of delicate Wool, luxurious Mohair and bright Acrylic (15% mohair, 40% wool and 45% acrylic).

I found the pattern on Ravelry, “Reversible Chevron Scarf” by Debbie Seton . I cast on 184 stitches using a 5mm (US 8 / UK 6) needle casting off on row 16. I knitted an I-cord edge to finish the knee rug off. If you want to know how to knit an I cord edge have a look at this YouTub video. The finished size is 52” x 52” or 132cm x 132cm.

Now to knit or to crochet? maybe both?

Love
