It's been 2 years since I released this design, and my how things have changed. I've come a long way in how I take photos for one. While I was updating all my old Wolf & Faun patterns, I felt it time the full story of this one be shared.  At the time of its release, I was too shy to really tell the whole story about Fog and how it came to be... but now it seems rather comfortable so here we go.

I was spending a lot of time with this rather amazing man who'd become a dear friend to me. We went on a lot of walks in the Fall and Winter months. Usually at night. On the island, it's damp all the time but especially at night and heavy fog was often part of the landscape. Being that it was cold and damp and Winter he also always had a scarf (or two or three) on. Later I would come to learn that he always has a scarf on no matter the weather but you get my point. 

Mid-January I was involved in a car accident. Or rather a car accident got involved with me and I sustained rather nasty head, neck and back injuries including a concussion. This marvelous friend of mine visited me daily for weeks. He ran errands for me, he brought me treats, he took me to the beach when I had cabin fever and needed to get out. He sometimes just sat with me for hours because that's all I could do. With all the extra time on my hands doing nothing (doctors orders) I wanted to at least work on some sort of Thank You to him for all that he was doing for me. That's where the pattern comes in. It was slow going (head injuries are brutal for a knitter's concentration!) but by mid March it was ready. I was too chicken to give it to him so I walked to his house, and left it in a box under his car, ran home and texted him that it was there.

Our son is turning 1 years old next month! (Does that sum up the rest of the story for you?). Life is marvelous and so is my man. I still have more scarves planned for him in the not to distant future but this one will always have a special place in my memory bank (plus he still wears it daily two years later). 

I'll end now with the original description published with the pattern. Please check out it's Ravelry page for many great versions people have made themselves.

Wolf & Faun Knits 

 

Fog 

 

Knit with 100% Alpaca, Fog has a subtle presence that envelopes you without the weight. Inspired by a dear friend -now partner- who always seems to be wearing a scarf no matter the occasion, this contemporary piece is knit with a variety of stitches to create reversible texture and depth while also having clean lines. Fog is very versatile. Knit it in a wool for chillier weather or in a cotton or silk for those who seem to wear a scarf no matter the season. Length can easily be modified by reducing or adding the number of rows knit before binding off.

This is a triangle scarf knit from the top centre outwards. A good intermediate beginner scar, you must know how to knit, purl, yarn over, M1R and M1L

 

Details:

  • 3 Skeins of 50 g / 120 yards Sandnes Garn Alpakka (360 yards/ 310 meters total of dk weight yarn).
    * I used the complete 3 skeins to complete this project, if in doubt I would recommend purchasing one more skein to allow for variance.
  • 3.5 mm / US size 4 32” curricular needles or longer.
  • Stitch Markers
  • Tapestry needle for weaving in ends.
  • Gauge: 6 sts / inch in stockinette stitch
    *Exact gauge is not necessary
  • Finished Length: Approximately 17 inches from top of centre to bottom.
    *Size can be modified by increasing or decreasing the number of rows knit.

  • What a gorgeous back story to Fog. I love it so much. What a wonderful man you have there! Sadly my husband overheats constantly so can’t wear anything I knit – unless we move to the North Pole – which is gutting as I’d love to make something special for him. It is so lovely to hear that yours wears Fog still. That’s true love, that is! x
