Another Lintilla
Lintilla by Martina Behm
Needles & yarn
US 2½ - 3.0 mm
Ruby Red
556.0 yards (508.4 meters), 139 grams

I love this pattern! I blended and spun the yarn for this pattern, using odds and ends of fibre. There is a lot of angora in the blend and it is blooming nicely - the feel is incredible, so enjoyable to knit.
Knit the body until I had 41g left.
26cmx188cm (10”x74”) after blocking.

The only modification I made was to change the tip, because I found that my first Lintilla the end did not match the beginning (I was much wider).

For the end I knit a 4 row repeat instead of a 2 row one -

For Tip at the “Go on as follows:” section
Row 1:purl 1, knit to last 2 stitches, k2tog.
Row 2: purl 1, knit to end.
Row 3: kfb, knit to last 2 stitches, k2tog.
Row 4: purl 1, knit to end.

Repeat until 8 sts remain and then repeat Row 1&2 only until 4 sts remain, bo.

The photo with the blue Lintilla I made shows how the end tip is different from the beginning one, and why I made the modification.
