I’m pleased to announce that the Rockrose Scarf is now available!
After making the Rockrose Wrap I wanted to see if I could make a smaller version with just one precious (100g/400m) skein of 4ply yarn, you know the sort of thing, it called to you in the shop and though you couldn’t quite resist it, you only bought one skein (two would be an extravagance). Now you want to make something with it, but what? Well, I made this!
On my birthday this year I decided to treat myself to a single skein of Posh Yarn Audrey Sock (made with mulberry silk and cashmere), being such an indulgent yarn, I thought I’d just stick at one skein, but I wanted to make something elegant with it and use up as much of my precious (try not to say that in a Gollum-like voice) skein as possible.
I’d been pretty pleased with the wrap version of this pattern, so I thought I could do with making a smaller version for those with less time, patience, or an aversion to lace weight yarns (I have to be in the right mood to knit with lace weight). It also gave me chance to make sure my hastily scribbled charts made sense now that I’d redrawn them neatly on the computer!
I was pretty pleased with the result, this yarn is really beautiful and makes the scarf incredibly soft with a really lovely drape. Sadly Audrey Sock has been discontinued, but Posh Yarn Natasha Sock (baby camel and mulberry silk) would give a similar effect. So scarf knitted, it went off to my lovely tech editor and testers and now finally it’s ready to share with you!
The Rockrose Scarf is the latest pattern in Wildflower: The Lace Collection eBook, available here. There are at least five more patterns to go! If you buy the collection the patterns will be automatically added to your Ravelry library as they are released.
Also, if you’ve already bought the Rockrose Wrap (or if you add both patterns to your cart together), you can get the scarf version free (and vice versa, if you buy the scarf pattern you will get the wrap pattern free), just add it to your cart and the price of the scarf pattern will be deducted automatically.
♥ Until midnight GMT Sunday 2nd November 2014, the price of the Rockrose Scarf and Wrap patterns has been reduced from £3.75 to £2.75! No need for a code, the price has been altered on the pattern page and will return to the higher price at midnight on Sunday. ♥
Hope you like it,
