I have been thinking of knitting the Chevron Scarf from Last Minute Knitted Gifts, designed by Joelle Hoverson for ages but I haven't had the right combination of yarns. I just purchased (Plucky Knitter) Sarah's lovely Wuthering Heights sportweight superwash merino. I love this purple... what to do? There are 275 yards in this skein. Juliia at The Mind of Winter posted about how she used a chunkier superwash merino in lieu of Koigu and modified the pattern. That would work for me. She also noted that she used 3 skiens Artyarns Supermerino (100% Superwash Merino) 105 yards each and used only one color of verigated yarn. Hummmmmmm? Please send your creative thoughts and yarn color suggestions my way. Should I bother using a second color?
On the needles pictured above is my favorite little swing coat No. 3 Here are the others No. 1 and No. 2. The Girlfriend's Swing Coat Sweater by Wendy Bernard. I am making this little number for one of my favorite little girlfriends in size 8. I love the color "Grass" it makes me very happy to knit!
