The Modern Scarf

Tie One On This Spring!

Forget warm and woolly–the perfect springtime scarf wows with clean lines and a light, comfortable hand. Our featured project this week is the beautifully minimal Tier scarf knit with two skeins of Shibui Twig. Easy to knit in simple stockinette with elongated stitches, the tweedy blend of flax, silk and wool makes for a crisp and colorful accessory you can drape over anything. Save 10% off Twig through Wednesday, May 25–the Tier pattern is free with your Shibui purchase!

There’s a good chance you’ll fall in love with Twig–so what’s next? Try Slope by Shellie Anderson, or High Trestle Tee by M.E. Greene, then join Clementine on Monday mornings in June for a Shibui Knit-a-long to get your project finished in the company of other Shibui aficionados.



Next Week’s Catch: Artyarns Silk Pearl

My search for a one-skein pattern for Silk Pearl is over! I love the unusual look of +SSS by Reiko Kuwamura–part kerchief, part cowl–and its luxurious drape that still has body, thanks to the addition of Habu Silk Stainless Steel (that’s the SSS in the pattern name.) The simple style lets the beauty of a special yarn take center stage. From May 26 – June 1, save 10% on Artyarns Silk Pearl; the pattern is free on Ravelry.
Look for a new fast and fabulous project, plus an accompanying sale yarn, every week starting on Thursdays. Please remember that the Los Altos Farmers Market rolls onto State Street on Thursday afternoons–park carefully and enjoy the fresh produce!
