Here is the last new design I will show you for awhile. Biondo – Italian for blond – scarf is reversible with a twisted stitch as a divider between each of the three cables. The stitch also work as a folding line, hence emphasises the more relaxed alternate side. The scarf is knitted in a divine silk and alpaca mixture for that lovely feel and sheen. Du Store Alpakka Baby Silk is the yarn and the shade is Pale yellow 352. The Norwegian pattern will be published in the magazine Familien the date will be confirmed later, while the English pattern will be test knitted in February in my Ravelry group before its release.
The scarf measures 29.5 cm/11.5″ wide and 140 cm/55″ long. It is knitted using a 3.5 mm/US 4 needle with a gauge of 24 stitches and 32 rows in stocking stitch measuring 10 cm/4″ square. The luxurious fibres in Du Store Alpakka Baby Silk; 80% alpaca and 20% mulberry silk make it both warm and soft around your neck. The yarn has been kindly sponsored by House of Yarn.
My husband photographed me wearing the scarf in our garden late in November. The photo above shows the wrong side out giving a softer appearance of the reversible cables. Next I will begin to show you the wonderful professional photos Eivind Røhne took of gorgeous model Silje Andresen.
