Promenade Scarf

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….

Folio in Violet
Folio in Pacific
Folio, with a mohair edging.

And here’s one in the Tosh merino light…

Love it!

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:

Windowpane Scarf

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.

Leather and Lace

I just can’t gift this one, I have too many things that will go with it. The yarn was a gift for a friend and it’s called ‘A Good Yarn Canada Sexy Sock’ in the colorway ‘Leather & Lace, Stevie Nicks’.

An easy to memorize pattern and what a SUPER yarn! Very calming and easy to do while watching TV or as an on-the-go project.

I made 2 halves and grafted them together within the garter stitch section to hide the seam. Being careful not to do this grafting too tightly, since the shape would be a bit wonky, I wanted to be sure it would block flat.
