January in Red Scarf


Hover over any photo to Pin

This scarf was a joy to knit!  I found a wonderful yarn in Nashville, Tennessee while on vacation this spring.  A lovely yarn shop called Bliss Yarns carries this huge 560 yards (512 m) skein of squishy, yarny goodness in gorgeous reds/blacks by Miss Babs.

Yowza-Whatta Skein in Awesome!  Superwash and hand painted without a knot in sight!

As I have not yet blocked this beauty, it's a bit difficult to see the little eyelet detail on the points.  The drape is perfect and I think it looks divine on my petite daughter.  If you are rather plump, like me, you will look awesome too!
You can see from the back, the points are just on the one side.  I very much like these types of patterns. No edging needed, great for the shoulders or just around the neck.  Something like this in cotton would be great for the summer months and air conditioned spots.
It's all garter stitch, but interesting enough with the eyelet points.  You can just see them on the left.  If you are a beginner knitter, you will enjoy this very much.  Easy to read pattern and very well written.  The name of the pattern is January Scarf and Annie Lee, the designer is available, too, for questions.  Always a plus!   She has a web site and is also on Ravelry, so you can save her pattern in your library.

Annie is also the designer for my Freesia in Gold I had posted about recently.  Another easy, well written pattern that was fun!  You can find it in her Ravelry shop as well.  Freesia is the name of that pattern.

The sun is finally shining here in the Midwest and we look for temps in the mid '80's all week!  Yea!

Have a great week,

  10. This is so pretty! I just started crocheting, saw the thumbnail on the Redfly Creations link party and was crossing my fingers it was a crochet pattern. Oh well, it's still beautiful and the beauty added some brightness to my Sunday morning! :)

    Best Wishes,

    Crystal
