I love to wear scarves and with the arrival of spring weather, I wanted something lighter with drape to wear during the coming months. Since humidity is a large part of spring and summer in South-Western Ontario, I need a stitch pattern that would still look great, even if the scarf rolled or lost its blocking. Once I discovered this strong graphical stitch in Charted Knitting Design: A Third Treasury of Knitting Patterns by Barbara Walker, I knew I had a winner.
– 20 sts and 28 rows to 4 inches in stockinette stitch
– 18 sts and 30 rows to 4 inches in mesh pattern
Schulana Sojabama (50g/120 yd. skein), 3 skeins. Shown in colour 010 (red)
4.5 mm or US #7 (or size required to obtain gauge)
8″ x 54″ blocked
Any yarn with drape can be substituted for Schulana Sojabama, especially silk and silk blends.
