Pattie has been especially inspired by this project, Grace is her third pink scarf! This is one of those versatile scarves, knit in Summer Set, that we think would work well for men or women with its understated textured pattern. Keep the fringe for some pizazz or leave it off for your favorite guy! Either way, its a sophisticated simple knit (please note that clicking the pictures will begin the download.)
Our next scarf, the Catskills scarf, was designed by Heather.
I chose Magnolia for my project because I LOVE this yarn. I had knit the Royal Empress Shawl as soon as the yarn and the pattern where available and just loved how the yarn worked up and the feel of it passing through my hands. I jumped at the opportunity to knit with it again! I knew I wanted to make a scarf cast on lengthwise as they always seem to work up faster for me, in my mind anyways. I started flipping through stitchionaries, toyed around with a few swatches and settled on one that I could tweak a bit. My intent in decreasing stitches as I progressed was to have a crescent shape scarf. However what I ended up with were peaks opposite the soft scallop of the cast-on edge. I love the end result and how knitting with the best laid plans can sometimes pleasantly surprise us.
Thank you for downloading and knitting these projects; we hope you enjoyed them as much as we did. And whether you knit them in pink or black, purple or brown; for yourself or as a thoughtful holiday gift, we hope you keep our original sentiment in mind. We have two survivors in our midst, so commemorating Breast Cancer Awareness Month was especially resonant for us, but cancer is an indiscriminate disease that affects us all, and the only way to fight it is through research and early detection. So, in these final days of October, we hope you contribute to the fight and remember your favorite charity. Stay tuned for an e-book compilation of all our pink scarf patterns soon!
Cheers to our health and our knitting!
