Mr. Manly models the entrelac scarf

On one vacation, my SO and I checked out a local "bargain barn" which is where I found this mannequin. I bought him as a prop for My Daughter the Photographer. She finally tired of him, so he has returned to me.

Pattern: Entrelac scarf by Freckles and Purls
Yarn: Noro Kureyon, colorway 184
Needles: US7
Modifications: none

This is a good pattern for learning entrelac, and the yarn does the color-changing for you. My knitting didn't seem to match the pattern on the "Final Tier Triangles" section, but otherwise I had no difficulties except those self-inflicted.

The pattern calls for Silk Garden, and the Kureyon is a bit stiff and bulky, but with a little use, I think it will be okay. Said daughter has already claimed the scarf. I guess that's a good trade for Mr. Manly.

I think he looks good in the scarf. Makes up for the lack of arms, really.
