you asked for it—you got it, just in time for weekend knitting. we didn’t even rush it; the cabled keyhole scarf is so quick to knit that we had several test copies finished in no time. i can assure you though, that the results belie the effort involved—it looks suitably impressive, polished, and richly textured enough for any occasion, any recipient. a great stash-busting project for small amounts of DK yarn or that little luxury skein you’ve been trying to match with a project.
shown here, size small in briar rose fibers cashmere special, a pure cashmere 4-ply sport/DK, in colorway 103 blue/green. chris is offering a special discount to knitspot readers through january 8, 2011 for all yarn purchases from her online shop; use the keycode knitspot.
this scarf also coordinates very well with our fine cabled mitts; it requires a different yarn weight, but sometimes we have both in the same color, right?
if you don’t have a luxury yarn on hand, sturdy, workaday yarns work equally well—a couple of my samples are knit in machine wash DK purchased at a discount store, but can you guess which ones?
i wanted to complete a couple more samples for the pattern release, but then thought that maybe you’d just want the pattern more quickly—we can all knit our next one together. haha, i’m sure a KAL for this scarf will spring up in our knitspot ravelry group before i’m done writing this post!
and happy weekend knitting—you deserve it. try to relax and take things as they come; getting ready for christmas should be fun.
