I am thrilled with this design as it comes together using this Basis yarn.

This is the Provence Petal scarf by Jen Giezen. Here is what Jen writes about the design:
Primarily I have designed the Twin Petal pattern, based on a similar knitting method. I have now created the bigger petal pattern combined with drop sts technique.
The finished texture looks amazing, The project can be knit in any type of yarn besides of cotton.
The PDF including a chart, video reference, and written descriptions row by row.
HonestlyI am dinding it to be a very easy knit with only one row that needs some attention -- but no worries as the designer has a very clear video how-to that makes it simple. Don't get scared by the "knit 22 together" --- Jen has made a video that shows you an amazingly simple way to do this!
Yarn and Colorways
I am knitting mine in this, a summery yarn called Basis from Trendsetter. This is not the yarn that Jen used for her original; hers was a cotton yarn. You can see ours on the righthand section of the top photo and again below that.
Basis is a delicious mix of fibers, being made up of 75% Cotton + 16% Alpaca + 9% Cashmere. Each 50 gram ball has +/- 210 yards.
One ball will give you enough yardage to make the relatively short scarf that Jen made (35" length). A second ball will, of course, allow you to make it longer.
The yarn is dyed in quite an interesting way. You will notice that we show with each colorway a photo of its swatch. The color changes are quite subtle and enhance the depth of the whole.
We offer three colorways via this web page:
1. Shades of Grey: A pale rendering of very very light grey (almost cream) and slightly deeper hues.
2. Sky-Moss is a song of the forest and the sky. The colors here are a soft blue and a sage green.
3. Raspberry-Orange is a lovely combination of flowery hues. The yarn is dyed with a combination of raspberry and orange. This is a lovely flower garden of a colorway. This is the colorway I chose for mine.
