You can find Momijigari on Ravelry here. It is a paid pattern but I think it is completely worth it. I can easily see myself using this for many birthday and/or Christmas presents now and for a long time.
It flew off my needles! I had it knitted and pinned out within 15 hours. I used my sons old cot matress to pin it out on, I would have preffered something slightly larger, but until I can afford some foam mats, it will do. But the size is still great for a scarf (which is the reason I made it).
This was so many firsts!
- First lacey thing
- First blocking attempt ever
- First shawlette/shawl/scarf
- First item knitted start to finish without stopping for other projects in the middle.
I love this pattern and I am so glad I eventually bought it. I used a 4ply yarn from Flagstaff Alpacas here in Dunedin. It was a 60% alpaca, 20% merino, 20% nylon blend and its lovely and soft. A few of the loose hairs itch my neck occassionally, but I have a sensitive neck so I am not surprised. It's not enough of an itch to make me consider leaving it at home. Please excuse the 1st bad photo.
