It is about time I show you the photos Michael took of me wearing Tau, the scarf I designed especially for the Vienna Wool & Design Festival. You have already seen it photographed on a handsome young man by the team behind the festival magazine “Wool 2 go”, but I thought you should see it worn by me too. Tau was photographed in our old garden, a day before it was sent off to Vienna back in the beginning of March. Above you see the wrong side out.
Here is my introduction to the pattern. I was instantly captivated by this teal coloured luscious Yak yarn by Lang Yarns, especially chosen and designed for the Vienna Wool & Design Fesitval. A rope like cable worked over rib stitches gives it a sculptural feel. Naturally, I named it Tau meaning rope in Norwegian, and human being in an Eskimo language.
The pattern is only available in the printed magazine in both English and in German. The magazine also contains 11 other designs by 9 designers who all participated in Vienna Wool & Design Festival. You can order the magazine from this webpage: viennawooldesignfestival.com.
