Chameleon

Finished Objects, Hats, Scarves

Chameleon - hat Chameleon - scarf Chameleon - balaclava Chameleon - head band Chameleon - Sahariane

Is it a… hat? scarf? balaclava? headband? sahariane? It’s all of em 🙂

  • Pattern: Chameleon – mine
  • Yarn: 100g pure linen, 18 wpi, charcoal.
  • Needles: 1 x 3.25mm and 1 x 4mm 80cm circulars (magic/lazy loop).
  • Circumference=20″/51cm and length= 20″/51cm

This turned out well considering it’s a first attempt at ‘proper’ lace knitting, and I made the design up. I’ve tried it on and it fits! Being rather camera-shy though, I’ve let ‘Sev’ do the modelling. Of all the permutations, my favourites are the hat and scarf.

There is one niggle – I couldn’t figure out how to hide the start of each round in the net section, so the holes look slightly mis-shaped at that point. This also means there’s a noticeable join when the scarf is laid out flat, but this gets lost when it’s being worn so that’s ok. I’d like to figure out knitting ‘seamless’ net for a future lace idea.

Yes, there will be a next time for lace! I enjoyed making this. I’ll freely admit that the k2tog every other st in the net was a little hard on the fingertips, but the end result justified it. I think at some point I’d like to make an ‘openwork’ shrug or cardi; first, I need to practice techniques a bit !

Many thanks to my SP for the yarn and encouragement 🙂

  2. That is a VERY nice design. I’m still trying to figure out how you did it. I saw this on ravelry and had to tell you how nice I think this is.
