what could be more refreshing for a new year knit than a light, lacy scarf that lands around your neck and shoulders as if the wind wrapped you in foam from the sea?
this wide, long scarf piles up in light folds to trap warmth where you need it in the cold days ahead, but will double as a narrow stole once spring steals into the air.
this pattern is perfect for a silky yarn blend with a bit of sheen, that will highlight the changing direction of the stitches in the damask surface.
to accent the quiet repeating pattern of the main panel, there is knockout edging that is sure to grab attention and second glances at every turn.
the lush palm frond edging with beautiful nautilus points further confirms the illusion of foam-edged waves eddying about the shoulders.
as dramatic as it is in this beautiful beach glass colorway, just imagine how that effect would be amped up in a dark color against bare skin . . .
oooh, la la.
shown here in woolen rabbit kashmir, a soft merino/cashmere/nylon 2 ply yarn that is not quite laceweight, not quite fingering weight. the colorway is water study and was featured in the june installment of kim’s yarn club.
many thanks to my friend kim at the woolen rabbit for inviting me to contribute a pattern to her club lineup and for making such a gorgeous colorway that is both quintessential 1920s and exactly what i had envisioned in my head when we talked about the colorway. thank you kim!
