A lovely package and a pattern release!

My Mum has rediscovered her knitting mojo and has been creating beautiful gifts for family and friends. I am over the moon that she has been enjoying knitting one of my patterns. My Shoreline Scarf was first published in Knitting Magazine Issue 195. The original design is knitted in gorgeous Uist Wool Cannach 4ply yarn. I love how the Cannach yarn textures and shades work so well together in bias-knitted stripes.

Mum wanted to knit a slightly larger version of the scarf so she chose a DK yarn, Rowan Yarns Alpaca Soft. Working the pattern in a heavier weight of yarn means that Mum's scarf is a little bit wider than the original. Now that all the presents have been received by the lucky friends and family, I can share a few photos of Mum’s knitting. This is also a great opportunity to release the pattern as a download from Payhip and Ravelry

So, what was in the lovely package? Well, Mum has knitted a scarf for me! This version is knitted in two shades of UK Alpaca Super Fine Alpaca DK and I love it! 

Mum is now working on a short version of the scarf, so that she can sew the ends together and create a cowl version! Such a clever way to use up the remaining yarn. 

Happy knitting and I hope you enjoy this pattern!
