FO: Shawl Linus


What’s that you say? I left my shawl in the bushes? No, no, no . . . it’s not my shawl!

It’s Spencer’s new scarf! I must say, this Into the Whirled colorway has been transformed by Annett Cordes’ simple and elegant Linus pattern. I love the result and it seemed only right that this one found its forever home around Spencer’s shoulders. The colors are perfect for him, and I hope it keeps him warm during all of this winter’s outdoor chores. (I am secretly hoping he doesn’t wear it while working *under* the prison bus . . . but we can keep that just between us bloggers, right?) Here are some FO shots of what is now known as the “Woodcutters” scarf in action! Technical details are below.


Technical Details:

  • Knit on size US 4 needles (2.5mm)
  • Yarn: Into the Whirled Bukavu Sock (100g / 460 yds)
  • Colorway: Mukhina
  • Leftovers? ZERO!
  • Overview: Simple, elegant, garter stitch, bias pattern that really highlights the lovely changes and color pooling in a single skein of variegated yarn . . . I really want to cast on about 10 more of these. It was a quick, calming knit perfect for traveling. Way better than socks (did I just say that???)

    I have made 2 of these with leftovers from sock yarn! Finally, something that works great even for small amounts. And, you knit until you run out of yarn, knit while you watch TV, perfect simple project for on the road.
