  1. very nice designed blog...great pictures...and thank you for the patterns of your really baeutyful designs...greetings from germany colette

  2. Thanks Colette, glad you like it!

  3. Why is this pattern called "Ingram"?

    1. Hi Zena, thanks for your question! I knitted this scarf for my Dad and he was living on Ingram St in Glasgow at the time. Not a very meaningful reason, but I just liked the name.

  4. what does with yearn held double mean

    1. Hi Nelia,
      Thanks for your question! It means you use two strands of wool at the same time from two different balls.

    2. Now, I definitely have to make it, I know where Ingram St. is in Glasgow, I stayed on Pentland rd, when I was there.

    3. That's just down the road from where I live in Shawlands! What a coincidence...

  5. I just finished making this scarf with Deb Bliss Riva yarn. I love it. It's quite long in a bulky yarn, but is so cozy and warm. Thank you for sharing the pattern.

  6. Thank you so much for the pattern. I love it. My grandfather's middle name was Ingram. I was thrilled when I saw the title. :-)

  7. I would dearly love to hear your Scottish accent! I'm not sure you would like to hear my New York one :). I have just the right yarn for this. Thanks so much for the patter.
