Knit Night

I promised the airplane knitting that I changed halfway through, and here it is.

Elfe Tee

This was definitely worth re-doing. I like the more subtle striping better with this one, and the thick to thin design works well with those stripes too.

 

Elfe Tee

I used the same gradated yarn (Wolle’s Color Changing Cotton) as in the shawls in the previous Knit Night post. This Elfe tee used two skeins: the first is the Mystique color way, which gradates from navy to grey to chocolate brown. The second skein is called Tardis and goes from the same grey, to medium blue, to navy. the stripes get a little funky in the middle where the greys switch places, but that’s part of what I like about this.

 

Elfe Tee detail

I was very curious to see how two graduated yarns would work together, so this was lots of fun. Next up is a shawl that will use the black to brown to grey that I jettisoned from this project, paired with a grey/purple that should be subtle but nice. Slightly more technical Elfe details are on my Ravelry post here.
