Easy Eyelet Scarf

Churchmouse Yarns has adapted their Easy Eyelet Poncho and Wrap pattern and the scarf is amazing! Lynda is going to need a new project and I think that this will be it.

You can download the addendum on Churchmouse’s website. You need the original pattern in addition to the addendum.

In possibly the simplest lace pattern that exists (it’s a one-row repeat!), we’ve reinterpreted this wrap in so many yarns over the years. With the option to seam it into an easy poncho for a breezy, multi-season layer, it’s quick to knit—it’s got more holes than yarn!

We’ve knit this Easy Eyelet Wrap in a combination of Shibui Silk Cloud and Madelinetosh Tosh Merino Light. Perfectly paired with the mohair fuzz of lace-weight Silk CloudTosh Merino Light’s tonal washes of complementary, hand-dyed color gain a glowing halo. Together, these yarns have the soft, lightweight warmth we love season after season!

We’ve resized our Easy Eyelet Wrap with a free adaptation to make sure we took full advantage of both Tosh Merino Light and Silk Cloud’s yardage. We kept the scarf narrow to gain a lavish length! And with the extra yardage of Tosh Merino Light, we added an abundance of fringe.

Churchmouse used 2 skeins of tosh merino light and 2 skeins of Shibui Silk Cloud for their sample. The colour is Lovegrass. 

While I was unpacking Dyed in the Wool I put together five kits for Cinnabar by Andrea Mowry. You can purchase the pattern on her website.
Garter and brioche will always be my go-to ingredients for creating my favorite shawls to knit and wear! This shawl plays with two-color Garter and Brioche with the increases offset to create an asymmetrical shawl that wants to be wrapped right around you! This shawl turns up the volume on texture by using DK weight yarn in one color and Sport weight yarn in the other color!

I spent time in the store today but there weren’t a lot of pick ups. I haven’t talked about snow days. If there is a Weather Advisory, please call the store before heading out. I live in the country and our roads aren’t a priority to be cleaned.
