This, is Kelp Grove. The next pattern I hope to get out there in the wide world of knitting. In fact, I already have this pattern written up, it just never left my little world when I originally made it for my Mom for my first Mothers Day living outside of Alaska.
The stitch itself came from an old 1920's knitting publication that a friend had found in an antique shop. I played with it and created the above blue scarf for my Mom from Malabrigo Silky Wool. It was a wonderful piece and I wrote it down by hand and put it in my binder for later use. Well, after this past weekends trip and Alena's mom not only letting us crash at their house but feeding us wonderful food and watching Jenny's little boy, I thought I owed a thank you gift. So I pulled it back out, and realized as I put the finishing touches on the Braided Kappe pattern and figured out how to post it to Ravelry, that I should publish this one too. So it will come. It just may take awhile. Just trying to be honest. But since I won't await pictures of the wearer I think this one will be a bit faster. Fingers crossed anyway.
As for the Braided Kappe, I'm going to attach the pattern again. It has pictures and had a minute amount of finishing work. Please, let me know if you decided to give it a go and if you find any mistakes so I can fix the pattern. The finished pictures were a rush job. I had no idea meeting up with the recipient would be so difficult and she would be so recalcitrant regarding pictures. I edited out face shots and her butt per her requests.
hope you all have a wonderful day!
