everyone appreciates a reversible scarf and many knitters write to ask which styles are attractive on both sides. it’s not an easy desire to fulfill, actually, but i try to design as many as possible.
imagine then, how lucky i felt to stumble across this adorable reversible pattern—not reversible in the sense that it looks the same on both sides, but that it reverses to an equally pretty pattern. i worked with it in simple accessory constructions for a recent club installment, but eventually developed and idea to knit something slightly more complex—a reversible shawl.
not that this is difficult to knit; it’s not. but designing being a process as it is, i came to the conclusion i should do the shawl with too little time to spare before my deadline. so i saved the idea for a general release instead.
it took a little while to fit the project into my schedule but finally during a recent trip, i managed to snag some time to enjoy the indulgence of knitting this pattern with our soft, luxurious better breakfast fingering yarn.
i can’t even begin to describe the softness and drape—i’ll let the pictures tell the story!
(just look at it glow in the morning light. sigh)
earlier in the year i put it to a vote as to which shape i’d work with first—crescent or triangle (my personal preference). well, you can see what happened—crescent was the runaway favorite.
and it’s easy to see why; it’s an incredibly versatile shape which may be work in such a wide variety of ways, from a keyhole pull to a twice wrapped cocoon.
and with the reversible option there’s no limit.
two, two, TWO scarves in one.
and did i mention it has three sizes?
david has created a kit with pattern and your choice of any shade in this yarn. these skeins just go on and on—the yarn is so light and airy that we can pack plenty of it in each skein, enough to make generously sized pieces.

as for that triangle shawlette? no worries—i am casting on in the next couple of days and will have a pattern as soon as i can manage it.
i’m using this delicious shade of mocha for mine . . .
