What a GREAT free pattern! I had no idea how I could use up just 1 skein of bulky, and this turned out perfect. Mine is Malabrigo Mecha in Piedras. Love the many colors in this colorway, but how it’s not overwhelming. The buttons were found at Joann’s and what a deal at $3.00. Come on cold weather! Fat chance in Florida.
I’ve been making this scarf for a little while and I’m really enjoying it, so it’s now an available pattern. So far, my favorite yarns to make this in are Berocco Folio and Tosh merino light. Both very different yarns – the Folio is an elegant and luxurious feel and a great drape, while the tosh has a color depth that’s rustic and rich. GREAT choices!
Here are some I’ve made with Berocco Folio….
And here’s one in the Tosh merino light…
It’s rally hard to let these go – but they’re part of my Etsy offering for the fall and will be available soon at my new Etsy shop for finished items:
This pattern is the Holey Cocoa! by Silvia da Silva which is my go-to for having an ‘around the town’ project in my purse. I added a little bit of width to it, because I love it as a wrap or scarf. The yarn is Gina that I found while traveling.
This Windowpane Scarf was so easy to make and the yarn creates all the “WOW”. I had this yarn sitting around for a while and lately, I’ve been on a mission to use up my older stash when possible. I can’t say I’m on a “yarn diet” because, as with ANY diet, I am not very good at it.
I was able to use up some older stash in this shawl that kept asking, “What’s my purpose? Why do you buy so much sock yarn and never use it?” Ugh.
I really need to shop less and create more – possibly even destash a bit. I just love all the sock yarn colorways people come up with so I tend to collect them. I have so many, unwound skeins and I love looking at them. Maybe that IS INDEED their only purpose in my life. To be admired.
This shawl was made with Bugga! by The Sanguine Gryphon in the colorway Cuban Cockroach. Creepy name, but FABULOUS color!
