Let the Christmas knitting begin!
This doesn’t quite capture the richness of the color, but it’s close! It’s Knit Picks Andean Silk in the “Hollyberry” colorway. The two stitch patterns are from Barbara G. Walker’s “Treasury of Knitting Patterns”, they’re called Staghorn Cable and Triple Gull Stitch (also a cable). That’s seed stitch around the edges. I love seed stitch, don’t know why, I just do! The scarf will probably be about 8 inches wide after blocking. So, now that I’ve settled on the pattern, it’s time to fret about whether there’s enough yarn to make between 60 and 72 inches’ worth! I was sure I ordered enough … when I was using #8 (5mm) needles. After one ball is finished, I’ll have a good feel for what to expect from the #6 (4mm) needles.
