Shifting Sands Scarf

I love Malabrigo.

Pattern: Shifting Sands by Grumperina

Yarn: Malabrigo Merino Worsted, in “Velvet Grapes”, gift from Lauren. Only used about 86 grams of the skein.

Needles: US 9 (5.5 mm)

Size: I cast on 27 stitches (5 repeats). Finished size: Unblocked size was 4.5” x 45.5”. I didn’t measure it right after blocking, but after wearing it for a bit, it stretched out to 4″ x 50″. Just long enough to wear doubled and tucked into a jacket.

Notes: It was curling a lot before blocking. After blocking it laid quite flat, but after wearing it for a day, it was trying to curl a little big again – not so much as to be a problem, though.  If I made it again, I’d probably do another one or two pattern repeats (cast on 32 or 37), but this works fine, and allowed me to make three projects from 2 skeins of yarn. The stitch pattern is lovely and fairly simple if you can cable without a cable needle – for mine, there were 685 cable crossings. Oh, did I tell you I love Malabrigo?
