Bella Lino

Ms. Canada Post brought in a box from Lynda this morning.
Pattern: ZickZack (free on Ravelry)
Yarn: Mille Colori Baby

We used 2 balls of 56 and 2 balls of 51. The pattern asks for 96 stitches but we did 72 to make it longer.
An impressive yet easy to knit scarf in the style of a great Italian designer.
The chevrons are worked with single increases and decreases – no knots in your fingers trying to knit complicated double decreases and no double increases where the stitches get tight and hard to work with…
Every colorway of Bella Lino is dyed on a natural linen base, so any two colors used together in this double stranded project will blend organically, resulting in unique and subtle stripes. Customize the size, from a simple scarf to an oversized wrap, to create a piece that best works your wardrobe.
The Drop Stitch Wrap pattern is free in Classic Elite's Web-Letter.
58% Linen, 26% Viscose, 16% Cotton
5-5½ sts/inch on US 4-5 (3.5-3.75 mm) needle
150m (164 yards)/50 gram ball
hand wash cool, dry flat
17 striping shades
Beth's scarf is finished and it is way too cute.

Lynda also finished this really adorable baby sweater.

Pattern: Baby Tea Leaves (pattern purchased on Ravelry)
Yarn: 3 balls of Debbie Bliss Baby Cashmerino Tonals
Size: 12-18 months
Now it's time to put the TV on. March Madness has started.

does that mean you reduced the width (from 92 to 72 stitches) in order to have more yarn for length???

Yes, by reducing the stitches we were able to get a much longer scarf.
