knitscene Summer 2018: Stacking Scarf
The Stacking Scarf is an adventure of stitch patterns and striping. If you are a knitter who tends to get restless doing the same thing throughout an entire project, this is the project for you. You won’t get bored with the five blocks of different colors and varying patterns, from lace with a zigzag edge to textural stitch patterns. This scarf is worked back and forth in rows.
Also good news for knitters who may be allergic to animal fibers—as is the designer of this scarf—is that the yarn used is 100% organic cotton. KCP Gossyp DK is available in over forty colors, so you can create a color palette that is perfect for you.
We want to hear about which colors you choose. Imagine this in neutrals, with a touch of sky blue. Knitscene Summer 2018 is about possibility and striking style.
