Issue 219 Diamonds Are Forever Infinity Scarf
Have you worked with Soft Linen yet? It's a touch-it-to-believe-it blend of linen, wool and baby alpaca that is best described by Clara Parkes as "a perfect example of a smart fiber blend." This is the perfect yarn when you don't want to choose which season to knit for. The blend of summery linen helps the fabric breathe and the wintry wool and baby alpaca keeps the fabric cozy.
This week, Robyn M. Schrager has shared a pattern with us that is perfect for sampling Soft Linen, and ideal for beginning lace knitters. Follow either the written or charted pattern instructions (maybe choose the method you're least comfortable with for practice!) The scarf only requires two balls of Soft Linen, but trust me you'll definitely want a few extras in your stash.
