Assorted Doll Scarves: Extreme Vintage Knitting
with DMC Thread
By Danielle Hughes
Copyright 2013 Danielle Hughes
DMC Cotton Embroidery Thread – see the list below for exact specifications
DMC #5 weight thread – see the list below and for each scarf for exact specifications
Size 2 (or smaller) needles - [I am still experimenting with gauge and what will work best for each scarf.]
The test swatches are in assorted fine weight threads and are to test my interpretation of the patterns. I will keep adding them as I go. I plan to knit at least a test sample for each in the actual thread with a specified order and rough length for the variable colors.
Here is a list of all the colors used. I have included photos of some of the colors as they are in my working notebooks for each scarf. I will try to get photos with more accurate color soon. As there is some duplication between scarves not all sections have all the colors shown.
Note: I use two sources in creating these designs. I used the Encyclopedia of Needlework by Th. De Dillmont and Self Instructor in Silk Knitting Crocheting and Embroidery Published by Belding Brothers and Co. as I was interested in period patterns, especially those that utilized DMC products.
