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:
Yes, another Venetian Carnival Cowl. When I published this pattern, I know I mentioned that I don’t publish a pattern unless I enjoyed it immensely. So, yes, I did make another one.
I just love the Madelinetosh Merino Light, in any color! I don’t think they have a bad colorway, TBH. These buttons are actually plastic and I try to grab them whenever I see them at a store. They add no weight to the piece and are washable.
It may seem silly that I make my own pattern often, but this is why I published them – because I really do enjoy making them that much. This is the Shell Script Shawl, but in the pattern instructions are given for the scarf version. This yarn is a dk weight whipped up quickly during lunch breaks at work.
Wow, these 2 days a week on the train are really turning out to be a great thing. The only downside can be the delays. Sometimes as long as an hour, but I’ve never met a knittor or crocheter who minds a wait as long as they have a project bag with them. I’m no exception. My kids are grown, so no one misses me if I’m a little late but so far, and I haven’t really experienced a huge delay – or 90+ degree heat yet – but for now, I’m a happy train commuter tapping my feet and moving my crochet hook in time to some tunes. Life is good.
