It is rather rare but sometimes the colors and yarns of the original piece is so very striking that I just have to duplicate it exactly.
Such is the case in the latest version of S Curve by Becca Anderson
You might remember that we had some kits for this great design a few months ago, in 11 mini-skeins of Twizzlefoot from Mountain Colors.
(T)he pattern design represents a stretch of US131 as well as the curvy, winding back roads that make up West Michigan…our home.
And this is another version of the same basic design:
This is the two color version of the original S Curve scarf.
You will need 1-100g skein of the solid Herriot Fine and 2-100g skeins of the Huasco Sock Hand Painted. Almost any fingering weight yarn will work, as long as the gauge is correct. If you would like to make the scarf longer, simply add extra rows of the solid stripes in multiples of 2 rows.
We brought in the exact yarns and for our kit A, the exact colors that Becca used.
When we contacted Becca to ask for permission to use her photos she wrote:
That Huasco is so dreamy, isn’t it? And we used the Herriot Fine for the solid. The combination is just so soft and buttery feeling. I would recommend an alpaca for the solid so you get a little bit of a halo. It just adds so much loveliness. Photos don’t do it justice.
And we took her advice very much to heart. :-)
Kit A: includes one skein of Herriot Fine in Aquamarina (75% baby alpaca/ 25% nylon with 461 yards/ 100g), a rich deep turquoise. Plus there will be two skeins of Huasco Sock Handpainted in the Gaucamayo colorway (75% superwash wool/ 25% nylon with 433 yards/ 100g), mostly turquoise with dots and dashes of cream and wine and gold.
Kit B: The Herriot Fine is again Aquamarina (one skein). The Huasco Sock Handpainted is Inca Dorado, a mostly golden look, with again dots and splashes of other colors including turuqoise, godlenrod and some brown (two skeins).
Kit C: The Herriot Fine is Villa Blanca, a pure white. The Huasco Sock Handpainted is Miraflores, with an overall look of pink and rose with some sky blue and godlen brown.
(BTW, the last photo on this page shows one of Becca's original multi-colored S Curve pieces, as it shows the design itself so nicely.)
