|Shoreline Scarf by Emma Vining|
and Feather Sweater by Jacinta Bowie,
both from Knitting Issue 195
The theme of this issue is portable projects for travelling and my Shoreline Scarf fits the brief perfectly! Shoreline is knitted with two skeins of Uist Wool Canach Cottongrass 4ply. This lovely undyed Scottish merino fleece yarn knits up beautifully for a lightweight summer scarf. Shoreline is knitted on the bias, which creates the diagonal gradient stripes. I have used the contrasting shades of Osna/ Sigh and Breac/ Speckle for my alternating striped pattern.
You can see Shoreline, Feather and more beautiful patterns by amazing designers such as Jo Allport, Bronagh Miskelly, Helen Metcalf and Christine Boggis along with Jeanette Sloan's excellent A-Z of Knitting Techniques in this month's issue on sale now.
