Beautiful wintry colors, elegant knit-purl texturing, and colorwork that is reminiscent of traditional Nordic designs without mimicking them exactly. What's not to love? The scarf is knit flat, using the Fair Isle technique and five colors. The scarf begins and ends with ribbing. Once complete, it is folded and seamed to hide the reverse of the fabric. That also means two layers of warmth! Finished dimensions are approximately 8.5" x 75". It can be hand washed and dried flat. Rowan rates this Lisa Richardson design as requiring an experienced level of tecnhique.
Rowan's Alpaca Classic is a warm, fluffy yarn. At its center is a fine cotton mesh tube that has been stuffed with alpaca fiber. The cotton is almost invisible, leaving the alpaca to create a haze of color. It is a sport to DK weight yarn and is knit here at 6.5 stitches per inch in stockinette.
The kit includes the pattern and the yarn. For this project you will also need:
- single point needles in US size 5 OR SIZE NEEDED TO OBTAIN GAUGE
- single point needles in US size 3
- tapestry needle
