Bybee has crisp lines and an appealing simplicity that makes it easy to pair with almost any outfit. The body of the scarf is worked using a 14-row repeat that creates the textured blocks. The ribbing at the ends is a slip stitch rib. The stitch patterns are easy--just knits, purls, and slipped stitches. The finished measurements are 8" x 62.75". Bybee can be hand washed and dried flat. Brooklyn Tweed has assigned this Gudrun Johnston design a skill level rating of 2 out of 5 (adventurous beginner).
Brooklyn Tweed created Peerie for designs that benefit from good drape and sharp stitch definition. It is a worsted-spun 4-ply yarn so it is smooth and strong, with a subtle sheen that helps emphasize the raised grid in this design. It is a fingering weight and is knit here at 7.25 stitches per inch in the pattern stitch (after blocking). Peerie is made from US-sourced Merino wool and is spun and dyed in the US.
The kit includes the pattern and yarn. For this project you will also need:
- 24" circular needle in US size 4 (OR SIZE NEEDED TO OBTAIN GAUGE)
- T-pins for blocking
- blocking wires (optional)
- tapestry needle
