Monument Avenue Scarf - New Release
Monument Avenue Scarf pattern released today. Just $3 US
Another design resulting from combining slip stitch mosaics and the brioche stitch. While the scarf appears to be worked using a 2-color stranded method, only 1 color is used at a time. The result creates a reversible, luxuriously squishy scarf that has two distinct yet equally attractive sides. One side looks more like a traditional stockinette mosaic, but the fabric lays flat and does not roll as traditional stockinette must. The other side reveals a surprising textured effect, as shown in the photo below. This unisex scarf is very warm, yet lightweight and comfortable to wear. The pattern works well when combining a neutral color with a variegated with long color changes, or using 2 contrasting solids.
Such a fun knit - I think my next version might be in black and white; or maybe grey and camel. I'd love to see your color combinations.
And as always, if you have any questions or need any help with the pattern, I'm available to help. Just let me know.
