FO Friday: Volcano Trail

FO Friday time! My Volcano Trail is done, blocked and ready for fall temperatures.

Pattern: Volcano Trail by Maxim Cyr (Ravelry link)

Yarn: Mrs Crosby Hat Box in Pansy (purple), green variagated mystery sock yarn, Spunky Eclectic Spunky Sock in Wild Child (pink) and Shibui Knits Staccato in Raspberry

Needles: US 6

Mods: None

This was a really good stash buster. I didn’t use up any of the yarns completely but I did crank out a project that used 873 yards of yarn or roughly the equivalent of two skeins of sock yarn. Can’t beat that! And I have enough of each color to add at least one square on my mitered square memory blanket.

I couldn’t be happier with the color fade. These random skeins look almost like they were designed for each other! These photos are all from the front. I did not photo graph my duplicate stitch on the back. I’m not happy with it….I may rip it out and redo it. Just not today.

Bonus….this will be incredibly warm and very snuggly. I can wear it down and tucked inside my jacket. Or it pulls up nicely to cover my face on a super cold day. I would make this pattern again…but maybe for a gift? I’m not sure I need more than one of these in my wardrobe based on how long it stays cold here.

Happy Knitting!!

  1. It looks like it’d very effective at keeping away neck chills on winter walks. I like the colours you’ve chosen for it.

  2. This is stunning!! I’ve been looking at the pattern but would prefer knitting in the round all the way; do you think it would be possible in reverse stockinette?
