I needed a cream scarf last weekend...and didn't have a cream scarf!
Had to change my outfit at the last minute to keep my neck warm. Darn.
Anyway, this week I knit a cream scarf. This yarn jumped on me at Seattle Yarn Shop! It's Ella Rae "Latte". Softer than Malabrigo, and according to the LYS shopkeeper, it doesn't pill like Malabrigo!
The pattern is in the One Skein
The designer is Leigh Radford. "Double Cable Scarf"
I used 3 balls of yarn to create a 3 5/8" x 65" scarf. I likes 'em long. Two balls would have been sufficient to turn out an acceptable length. Basically, I used one ball for End#1, next ball for middle ribbing, last ball for End#2.
I didn't buy the book. I eyeballed the model scarf (knit up in Rowan LIMA) at my LYS, and the shop girl told me the design is in One Skein. I went home and wrote down the concept for the scarf. It's a very easy design. But on the Rav pattern database, I found the pattern, and that's how I came to be able to refer to it.
I like the ribbing for fringe, and ribbing around the neck, with double cables for the showy parts.
Ella Rae Latte, color 07-cream. Sinfully soft. I almost fainted. S-O-F-T.
