Making of: Blue heart scarf

Last year I was looking through some random patterns on Internet in hope I will find some inspiration. And I did – there was an awesome pattern for a rose-themed scarf.  It was made using reversible double knitting technique. I had no idea what it meant, but this is one of the best things about handmade: there is always something new and exciting to learn! Especially when you have an Internet and YouTube. Any existing crochet or knitting technique is only few clicks away!

So with reversible double knitting technique you use two colours of yarn to create a double-sided piece. What it means? Well, use this scarf as an example: one side is dark sea-blue with grey hearts the other side is grey with dark-sea blue hearts. The pattern on both sides is the same, but dominant colour is different!

As you can see on the first photo, I created my own pattern with hearts. I figured it should be easy to make but still looks neat! Some hearts are bigger and some are smaller, changing sides. How do you like it? What do you think of this pattern?

Because of this technique it is quite thick, (it has two layers instead of one) but wool and alpaca wool blend make this scarf pretty soft and nice to touch. And insanely warm! This is the scarf for the “Game of Thrones Winter is coming” weather!

If you get cold easily, you can buy this scarf (and others made with the same technique) in my Etsy shop. Is there any other two-coloured pattern that you would like me to use? I can make more scarves like this, share your ideas with me. :)
