Herbivore

knitThe year was 2010, I walked into Fibrespace [the old space] to meet my knitting bud, Kate, and saw the owner, Danielle Romanetti, was wearing a shawlette bandana style and she looked like she just flipped that shawl on effortlessly and moved through her day.  She made a shawlette look cool and I just had to make one.

I said, “Kate, what shawl is Danielle wearing?”

Herbivore Stephen West“, she replied.

How does she do that?  How does she just know what the name of a random shawlette someone is wearing?  Maybe someday I will know these things too.

I found the pattern online and purchased the yarn that day.  Stephen’s pattern showed the scarf in a variegated green color, so I chose a variegated green and blue Malabrigo Sock yarn in the color Solis as well.  No chance I was  messing this up.

The pattern at the time was a bit challenging for me as there was a center spine with yarn overs on each side and I could swear I had the wrong stitch count, because the stitch marker kept moving over the yarn over, but I keep going and eventually finished it.

I still flip the ends around my neck like Danielle did that day.  I can’t wait for it to cool off, so I can wear it on a chilly day.

  1. What pretty colors and cool pattern! I just went and found in on Ravelry so that maybe some day I can make one too. I have too many things on my to-do list right now to do it anytime soon. Thanks for introducing me to a new pattern!
