Hello! I've kept this scarf pattern under wraps for a while but now's the time to release it! Yay!You may have spotted me wearing the scarf in the Mavis Mitts photos? Niall and I took the photos on the same location shoot and because the two went so well together I kept it on in the background.
The pattern is called Printer Ink Scarf, named after the set of 12 mini skeins which inspired the design called Printer Ink. I thought it described the colours so well that I also mimiced the printer bleed effect in the way I changed colours. Do you like the name?
- the design calls for a set of 12x 10g mini skeins. I used Printer Ink Shades from The Knitting Goddess but it would work well in scrap yarn or perhaps an Advent calendar mix if you have one of those?
- this yarn is fingering/ 4ply weight (480m/ 120g, 40% British Blue Faced Leicester/ 20% British Wensleydale/ 20% British Alpaca/ 20% nylon)
- it's an intermediate level pattern, written in UK & US terms.
- when you reach the border the colours are worked until they run out, making the most of your pretty yarn.
- the finished scarf is 15cm x 200cm
- the pattern includes a few ideas for taking the design further by adding your own twist.
- 4mm hook required.
- there's a chart for the main scarf pattern.
- I'm here to help if you ever have any questions, no matter how big or small.
