Another delightful new pattern for you. This scarf is in the same vein as my Yuh-Chi Scarf. And, as the latest knit-a-long for my Twisted Love Mitts is over, I’m announcing a new KAL for this scarf! Just finish by the 4th of July and post photos to Ravelry in the Knitter Bunny forum thread. And use code “shannonkal” in your Ravelry cart to receive this pattern for 1/2 price through May 15, 2015!
The Shannon Scarf is named for my yarn dyeing friend who painted the lovely merino, yak, and silk skein I chose for this pattern. The long loop allows you to wear it as a cowl, scarf, or wimple. An edging of seed stitch leads its way into easy stockinette, garter, and simple lace bands. The edging ends with delightful points that frame your face.
This pattern is meant for adventurous novice knitters to experienced knitters and all those in-between.
