FO: Langsjal Jóhönnu and yet another scarf

This is another Moebious scarf. The yarn is a cotton Merino blend. I did not like the hand of the yarn after washed but it softened up after moving it around a bit. Needles US 5 in 47 inch length. The stitch pattern is from one of the Finish stitch dictionaries. As always, cast one multiple of the stitch pattern repeat, translate the chart for circular knitting and knit away until desired width or you run out of yarn...whatever happens first. This one was knit for my sis who took it back to Colombia...along with just about everything I had laying around that looked like a scarf or a shawl.



This is Langsjal Jóhönnu from Three Cornered and Long Shawls. I love the book and have knit several patterns from it. The yarn is Fiber Optica Lace. Needles US 3. The yarn was a bit felted in the skein but it came apart nicely when wound into a ball.
The pattern is knitted lace, stitch patterns on both sides. It knits up very quickly, maybe a couple of weeks at most. I love the shawl but I don't have it any more. My sister took it with her back to Colombia arguing I can knit more. Since I have never knit the same pattern twice, I might never get one done for me....or might, who knows.

The moebius is very intriguing. I knit Jóhönnu a couple of years ago and love wearing it. Nice work!!

They're both lovely. It wouldn't have occurred to me to do a Moebious scarf with a stitch pattern like that. How interesting!

You mentioned a Finnish knitting stitch dictionary, can you tell what it is, ISBN, how to get it? The stitches look interesting and make a very nice product!
thank you,
