Eye popping color! This project was so fun to make and is so beautiful to behold. I just love it. It is the Malabrigo Linen Stitch Scarf designed by Scott Rohr — purchased as a kit from The Yarnery ($29.50). It comes in two colorways now: classic and springier (light blues and yellows). The kits are not identical — the colors do vary.
Malabrigo Linen Stitch Scarf – Classic Colorway
Isn’t the fringe cute??
This project is running rampant through my knitting group (which we may rename “The Lemming Knitters” because we tend to run off the same knitting cliff in a herd!!).
Beth finished hers and wore it to Elsebeth Lavold, and I spent the whole of my snow day feverishly working on mine to wear the next day. Linen stitch is known for being a slow go, but this scarf is knit on size 11 needles so it is a relatively quick knit — unlike the Koigu Linen Stitch Scarf that is so popular. The finished fabric feels like cashmere. It is butter soft! Believe it or not, I have never knit with Malabrigo worsted before – just their sock yarn. I L-O-V-E it and may have to try it again.
I have also been making progress on my Snowbird and will have an update to share soon. So far it looks like it will fit. Yay!
