BoHo

I recently started a new project out of our lovely Margene‘s beautiful handspun.

Bohemian scarf

The pattern is called “A Little Bit Bohemian“, and it’s a simple garter stitch scarf that’s totally reversible. With the sideways construction, it’s great for just using whatever amount of yarn you have – start decreasing when you’ve used just under half your yarn.

The project knits up very quickly – I’m already about 30% done. Unfortunately, you can’t see the lace too well in the bright morning sun, but I think it will be very nice when it’s blocked out.

The fiber is merino and nylon, in the “Sunset” colorway, from Fiber Optic Yarns. It made a very soft and squishy yarn.

  1. While I love knitting intricate lace, there is something nice about being able to effortlessly knit a soft, squishy garter stitch shawl(lette). With a nice yarn, they can’t be beat! 🙂

    Oh yes, that’s right! Fiber Optic dyes gradient fiber beautifully. I’m glad the yarn is knittable.
