The Jeanie Scarf by Jo Allport Designs is knit using a lace fan motif creating an open lightweight garment. The key-hole style scarf is knit in one piece. The pass through portion is created with a seam after blocking making finishing simple and fast!! The pattern uses two hanks of Mana, an absolutely gorgeous hand painted pure mulberry silk yarn from Araucania Yarns. Mana is the Mapuche word for “sustenance from heaven” which describes the yarn perfectly.
The pattern is easy to follow with the lace pattern written in text and with a chart. Once you get started on this project you won’t want to stop!! To take a look at the pattern just click here.
The Staggered Shawl pattern by Amy Gunderson is such a whimsical fun knit. This is a great intro to intarsia pattern and only takes 3 balls of Universal Yarns Bamboo Pop. Bamboo Pop is light and breezy the perfect yarn for summer projects.
It is a machine washable 50/50 cotton/bamboo blend with amazing drape and softness. The pattern is fun and definitely holds your interest by staggering the colors every few rows. The pattern begins in the top center and increases as you work on both sides and the center.
There are lots of awesome color combinations to choose from but we fell in love with the green, purple, and black the second we saw it! You can check out the pattern by clicking here.
The Knit Infinity Cowl by L & B Yarn Co. was inspired by the Crochet Infinity Cowl by Queensland Collection. Like the crochet, this knit version uses two different colors of Queensland Cairns, a bright 60% cotton and 40% acrylic blend, that when mixed together create a beautiful mosaic fabric! The cowl can be worn long or wrapped twice for a shorter look.
The alternating linen stitch pattern is simple enough for a seasoned beginner and easy to memorize. If you are a veteran knitter you will enjoy how the colors blend together to make a true work of art. Click here to take a look at the pattern from L & B Yarn Co.
