Getting excited about fall weather and wrapping up in some of my favorite scarves!! The Pradera Wrap by Jocelyn Tunney is one of those favorites. It’s really wide and long so it can be wrapped a couple of times around my neck or I also like to tie it up in a key hole. The width makes the fluffy fiber bunch up around my face keeping me nice and toasty warm.
Clara by Manos Del Uruguay is an amazingly soft 100% superwash merino. It is a light and lofty sport-weight yarn with a hefty 385 yards per skein. I have washed this scarf multiple times and it still looks just as lovely as the first time!
The pattern is a great step up from a beginner scarf but because of the change in colors, creating a gradient effect, it is fun for knitters at any level. L & B Yarn Co. just received our fall shipment and we have 16 colors to choose from to make an amazing custom gradient scarf for you or a friend.
Here are a couple other color suggestions for this beautiful wrap!
With 16 colors available the color combinations are endless.

This is one of my all time favorite projects knit out of the beautiful Fino by Manos Del Uruguay a member of the World Fair Trade Organization. L & B just received a brand new shipment of Fino today! This yarn is an ultra soft 70% extrafine merino, 30% silk; with a hefty 490 yards per hank. The Circle Scarf by Jocelyn J. Tunney is a soothing knit created in stockinette stitch. The piece is knit flat and seamed together at the end with a simple seam with just 2 hanks of yarn. The effortless stitch pattern shows off the beauty of the kettle dyed yarn giving the finished project so much color depth.
Fino is hand dyed in large kettles to create a marbleized, subtly striated effect that forms a rich palette of glorious colors. Manos Del Uruguay is a non profit organization which assembles women in cooperatives scattered throughout the countryside of Uruguay. The aim of the organization is to bring economic and social opportunities to rural women.

The Pleat and Eyelet Scarf by Lisa Craig puts a jaunty spin on this long-line summer scarf. The pleated panels are worked simply from a pattern of garter stitch rib with alternating knit and purl stitch columns. A row of bobbles adds texture and embellishes the pattern. The scarf is knit in Taiyo a worsted weight cotton blend and is worked in two pieces then joined at the center using the Kitchener stitch. The banded stockinette and garter stitch pattern is punctuated with eyelet rows in between.
The Pleat and Eyelet Scarf is another beautiful piece L & B has on display from the Noro Trunk show! The pattern can be found in Noro Magazine Issue 10. This show includes 16 models knit or crocheted in Taiyo Sock, Taiyo, and Marai so come by the shop to check out them all out.
The Stripe Magic Scarf by Universal Yarn is a super quick project! You only need one ball of Uptown Bulky and one ball of Uptown Bulky Amplify. The Amplify has huge yardage (197 yards) so if you have two balls of Uptown Bulky you can make two whole 6′ long scarfs.
The yarn is 100% acrylic so these scarfs are great for washing. The Amplify is a self striping patterned yarn and the regular Uptown Bulky is a solid. You switch between the Amplify and Uptown Bulky every two rows giving the scarf a multi-colored stripe effect. If you have never tried Uptown Bulky before you won’t believe what a soft hand it has, I promise you will love it!! Click here to take a look at the pattern.
