A Breath of Fresh Air
Two design announcements in a week. Crazy!
The Loopy Ewe runs a club every year. In the past, it has been a sock club. Last year, Sheri started shipping 2 patterns with every kit, so one pattern was an accessory. This year, the club has morphed into more of a small project club — lots of socks, but lots of other little things, too. So, that means I am actually going to show you an accessory pattern, not a sock pattern!
It is A Breath of Fresh Air! The name for this scarf comes from the fact that the colors are so wonderfully spring and summer-like. On a cloudy, cold day, the cheerful scarf is as refreshing as a breath of fresh air.
Super fun to knit! The scarf is shown in The Alpaca Yarn Company Paca Peds — large skein of variegated, small skein of semi-solid contrast. The main portion of the scarf is knit in the variegated, then a lace edging is knit on using the solid. I could see knitting several of these up in all sorts of color combos. Hmmm… Maybe I should cast on another.
Currently this pattern is only available in the February club kit. However, I do know Sheri makes the patterns available at The Loopy Ewe about 6 months after the original kit ships. Watch for it there!
