Hi Spud & Chloë Friends,
Even though I get excited about new toy, hat, sweater and blanket designs, nothing excites me more than a really great scarf. The Reversible Rib and Lace Scarf is easily my new favorite. I used 2 hanks of the new colorway, Skydiver #7520 (available this June!), to make this light and airy scarf. It is such a winning combination of color and stitch pattern and size. I am thrilled with the final result.
Here is some information you might like to know:
Finished measurements: 6 inches by 72 inches
Yarn: Spud & Chloë Sweater (55% superwash wool, 45% organic cotton; 100 grams/160 yards), 2 hanks in Skydiver #7520
Needles: US size 9 or size to obtain gauge
Gauge: 4 stitches per inch in stockinette stitch
Note: The stitch pattern used in this scarf is an adapted stitch pattern from Reversible Knitting – 50 Brand-New, Groundbreaking Stitch Patterns by Lynne Barr.
After blocking this scarf took on such fantastic stitch definition. You can see the front and back of the scarf in the photo above. By combining the lace pattern with the rib pattern you get a completely reversible and interesting design which is always appreciated for a scarf.
I like a long scarf that can be wrapped about your neck two or three times or worn a multitude of ways. I really can’t emphasize how light and airy the scarf feels. It will be perfect for cool summer nights or spring or fall or winter nights at that. This is a year-round project.
The stitch pattern is 6 rows and is easily memorized after a few times through.
The new Skydiver colorway is dreamy but any color in Sweater will make a gorgeous scarf.
I wish I could keep this one but it will be sent off to your favorite Spud & Chloë local yarn shops in trunk shows. I will have to make one for myself to keep. I’m adding it to my list right now.
