The Cowl pattern is designed in three lengths, a shorter loop, a long and an extra long version. It’s worked in the round using circular needles or dpns for the short loop. The simple but eye catching slipped stitch pattern is sure to bring compliments every time you wear it. Make it in a classic neutral to go with everything or choose a bold pop of colour like a pillar box red for maximum impact.
Mathilde is a delicate, light but warm scarf, designed slip nicely under a smart coat for an extra layer of warmth, you could add more buttons and buttonholes so it fastens two ways. Or, you could use a thicker yarn for a larger scarf and warmer accessory. It’s up to you!
This Robin Hood’s Bay Scarf was designed following a visit to my LYS (local yarn shop). As soon as I walked into the shop the skein of yarn caught my eye. Try as I might, I just couldn’t walk away from it! The colour, the softness of the yarn just called to me.
This is the same as how I feel about Robin Hood’s Bay, which is why I named the set after this beautiful part of Yorkshire. I am drawn to the place, again and again. The pattern reflects the pull of the sea in the dramatic colour, the plains of the North York Moors in the sections of stocking stitch as well as the dramatic cliff edges in the lace.
The lightweight wool means it has an interesting drape. It is loose, light and airy which is perfect for the transition the weather of spring brings. There is a matching hat in a beret/tam style for a little boho chic.
The skein was West Yorkshire Spinners Exquisite (80% Falkland wool, 20% mulberry silk) in colourway Savoy 371. Both the hat and the scarf can be made from one skein. Why did I called it rivieting? I suppose the alliteration appeals to me but also because it was one of those projects where I just had to knit one more row …..
I used a skein of West Yorkshire Spinners (WYS) Exquisite (80% Falkland wool, 20% mulberry silk) in colourway Savoy 371. You could easily knit the beret and the scarf from the same skein of yarn. The yarn itself has a beautiful but gentle sheen, from the silk content and is buttery soft.
