Ankh Earwarmer

Posted by Picasa
For some reason this weekend I decided to make something. It's not like I don't already have at least four unfinished projects lying around.

And I've already got about six handspun earwarmers.

Ankh Earwarmer
(c)Severina/A Murphy 2008

This is a handspinning project that wound up taking about six hours total to design, card the fiber, spin the yarn, and knit. My finished measurements wound up being 22" around and 4" wide, but will stretch to fit.

2 1/2 oz. black Alpaca
2 oz. grey wool
Small amount of Icicle Nylon or some other shiny synthetic fiber
1/2 oz. purple wool
US size 2 dp needles or size to fit yarn gauge

Card together the grey wool and icicle nylon. This makes the shiny silver yarn. Card together the purple wool and black Alpaca, about half & half to make dark purple. Take a handful of silver-grey and card in some purple to make the light shiny purple--you'll only need about 5 yards of this color.

Once you spin the yarn, then check your gauge and divide that into your head measurement. Chart is 13 stitches wide so make sure you cast on a multiple of 13. I cast on 169 stitches.

Chart colors are odd. Main color is black Alpaca, ankhs are silver-grey except for stripe down the center which is the light silver-purple, and large stripe is dark purple.

K1, P1 rib for 1/2 inch, work chart, then K1, P1 rib for 1/2 inch. Bind off in rib. Darn in any ends and block finished piece.

Supercute! I like the idea of carding and spinning just enough for a small project. ... Now I'll go back to picking at this mountain of raw fleece with a dog comb.
