my new favourite scarf pattern



Wingspan.



(some of the pictures on the Ravelry page are just stunning. I may never stop knitting this with different wools...)

of course, using spectacular yarn (Cadenza, an 80% merino, 20% tussah silk) in fingering weight helps. These tonal greens are so beautiful. The pattern calls for 8 of the triangles, but one ball of the Cadenza will either JUST get me there, or leave me JUST short, so I've got two balls, and I'm going to make this much longer, so it will wrap and wrap around my neck. (Or my Mom's neck - this matches her alpaca coat perfectly...)

Next up, I'm thinking of using some Noro Silk Garden I have hanging around, then maybe some Kauni, or some Fleece Artist...

I completely understand this compulsion. It is on the list for summer knitting. I've got some Socks That Rock, some Zauber ball, and some Colinette. The Colinette will be short for sure, but I don't care. I will sort if out later. Obsessions do not have to make sense.

I'm not a scarf person, but agreed that is a lovely design.

That is really great. I am going to knit some for next winter too.

Beautiful!
I'm in the process of knitting the same pattern. When I turn back, I get a hole, so I've been wrapping that last stitch. How did you deal with it? Yours looks so smooth!
