Bạn có tin người đan ông trong ảnh đã tự tay đan chiếc khăn đó? Dù bạn tin hay không thì sự thật đúng là như thế 😛 Trang bán hàng của ông ấy đây. Thật thú vị khi nhìn đàn ông đan 😛 Mình chưa bao giờ hình dung chồng mình cầm kim đan thế nào, dù lão í có kể: “Ngày xưa anh cũng giúp bá Hiền đan đấy, cứ vòng dây rồi nhấc một phát là xong một mũi đan, nhưng chỉ đan một tí thôi, tò mò ấy mà!” Hi hi… đàn ông còn đan được cái khăn như thế, chả nhẽ bạn (phụ nữ đảm đang) lại không, nhỉ 😛 (Nói thầm: tớ rất thích cái khăn này nhưng tớ không đan đâu, ngại lắm :P)
Công thức đan:
When I first learned to knit in the ’70s, stranded knitting was referred to as Fair Isle. I’ve always found this to be a very evocative term.
This design came about when I was trying different ways of shifting yarn overs in a lace sample. I was playing around with increasing and decreasing stitches and wondered how the technique would transfer to stranded knitting. The result was this wavy stripe pattern which reminded me of deltas, rapids and New Zealand’s braided rivers.
I chose the Debbie Bliss colors to emphasise the water reference. The Rialto yarns are a pleasure to work with and the scarf is wonderfully soft and warm.
Making Fair Isle Rapids was a learning process for me: the quality of the knitting improved as the project progressed, and I’d now like to make a more technically assured version in finer yarns.

|Length: 45 inches
Width: 10.5 inches
|Debbie Bliss Rialto [100% Merino wool; 115 yd/105m per 50g skein]

[CC] #23006 Beige; 2 skeins
Recommended needle size:
|24 sts/23 rows = 4 inches in pattern
Note: Gauge given is approximate. It is not critical to achieve given gauge for this project.
|[Knitty’s list of standard abbreviations and techniques can be found here]|
|As you work the charted pattern, the fabric will pucker and bulge as it is shaped by the increases and decreases. Don’t worry, this is normal; it will be corrected when blocking.
Information about blocking can be found here and here.
M1L: Insert left needle from front to back under the horizontal strand which lies between the st just worked, and the next st. Knit into the back of this loop.
M1R: Insert left needle from back to front under the horizontal strand which lies between the st just worked, and the next st. Knit into the front of this loop.
SKP: Sl 1 knitwise, k1, pass slipped st over.
1×1 Rib (Worked over an odd number of sts):
|Using MC, CO 65 sts.
Work 5 rows in 1×1 Rib.
Next Row [WS]: P all sts.
Work Rows 1-20 of chart 12 times, or until scarf is desired length. Note that the stitch count will remain constant throughout, EXCEPT Rows 9-12 will have only 63 sts.
When all repeats of chart are complete, break CC.
Next Row [RS]: K all sts.
|Weave in ends.
Block as desired.
