I love this yarn and I love this pattern! This is my Starry Night Scarf made using Stitchnerd’s pattern called Cable Bias Scarf. It is so easy as it’s quite repetitive.
Most of the pattern is just straight garter stitch which makes it a perfect portable project if you’re visiting friends or in my case, attending my Knit and Knatter group twice a month. I can easily talk while knitting the scarf as I have memorised the pattern.
The cable is quite easy too and once you’ve completed a few repeats of the pattern, you’ll soon have it embedded in your mind!
Although this photo does not show the lovely colours of the scarf, it gives you an idea of the shape which is asymmetrical. Stitchnerd provides lots of easy to read instructions so don’t be put off by the four pages of the pattern. She goes to a lot of trouble to explain everything, step-by-step.
Here’s a few close up photos of the beautiful colours in the yarn.
I love the look of the cable border.
The yarn I used was the third offering in Zen Yarn Garden’s new ART WALK Series that featured a painting by Vincent van Gogh entitled “Starry Night” which inspired this colourway. I used two skeins for this scarf.
Serenity Worsted is a 10ply 75% merino / 15% cashmere / 10% nylon yarn and it is incredibly beautiful to work with. It is so soft and squishy and does not split. I’m really enjoying using worsted weight yarns as a change from fingering.
Yarn Glorious Yarn in Brisbane is the Australian supplier of the ART WALK Series so if you’re interested in purchasing any of the new series (once they sell out they are never repeated) just contact Sue. There are still skeins of Series 5 available.
I’ve purchased two skeins from each series. If you want to see them, simply type ART WALK in the search button at the top right hand corner of my blog and hit enter.
One more look.
I have already started my second scarf using this pattern and it’s looking spectacular. Yesterday, I also visited Stitchnerd’s Ravelry page and bought three more scarf patterns…..the Zen Bias Knits. Can’t wait to start knitting them. I have some yarn picked out for the first one….Leafy Bias. It’s the Sullivans Aztec alpaca / acrylic / polyamide yarn I featured in yesterday’s blog.
BTW, Stitchnerd also designed the pattern for the two Samothrace Wings Scarfs I recently blogged about.
Gotta fly….can’t spend all day sitting here talking to you 🙂 Hope you’re having a fantastic weekend.
