Changing Light by Jennifer Weissman of ShadyStroll Knits is a fully reversible scarf or wrap featuring stripes, lace and elegant pointed tips. Two sides of the diamond are worked flat to form one half of the piece; then the other two sides of the diamond are worked in the same way. Once the diamond-shaped center is complete, the remainer is knitted in the round from the center out. Each knitter will be entertained with sections of stripes, lace mesh and garter stitch that are further enhanced with colors drifting into one another. A photo-tutorial for an easy and beautiful cast-on is included. Available in 2 sizes.
Kit includes pattern and selected yarn. For yarn winding services, click here.
DESIGNER RECOMMENDED YARN: Tosh Sock by Madelinetosh (100% Merino Wool; 395yds): 3 Skeins, 1 of each color
DESIGNER RECOMMENDED YARN: Tosh Merino Light by Madelinetosh (100% Merino Wool; 420yds): 3 Skeins, 1 of each color
ALTERNATE YARN: Sock by Malabrigo (100% Superwash Merino Wool; 100g/420yds): 3 Skeins, 1 of each color. Sock is almost an exact match for Tosh sock yarn in term of color play and varigation within the yarn. The yarn is spun similarly and has the same hand. The kettle washed dyes provide brilliant colors with depth and interest.
ALTERNATE YARN: O-Wash Fingering by O-Wool (100% Machine Washable Organic Merino Wool; 100g/428 yds): 3 Skeins, 1 of each color. O-Wash Fingering will have slight varigation but not as much as Malabrigo. ARRIVING SECOND WEEK OF JUNE! This GOTS certified yarn is specially processed to retain its woolen qualities (the hand) while being environmentally sensitive. The dyes are naturally derived and friendly to the environment, and the wool is not treated harshly, such as burning off the scales or coating in plastics to keep the wool from felting in traditional superwash techniques.
