What a marvelous song to Springtime and its flowers!
This Flowery Infinity Scarf is by Sandra Nesbitt. Please get the pattern from her directly via her Ravelry page here. What we offer is some gorgeous yarn for knitting it and possibly beads to further enhance it.
Here is what Sandra writes:
Wonderful rings of flowers in a stunning array of summer colours adorn this lace cowl.
Its a massive 6’ long so can be wrapped round not just twice but 3 times if needed. 8” wide with a lovely sculptured wavy edging. Its near enough reversible too. On the underside there is a slight difference in the flower detail which isn’t obvious when worn
The Yarn and Colorways
Sandra knit her original piece using Noro's Aya, a worsted weight yarn of cotton/silk/wool blend. Unfortunately that yarn has been discontinued.
We found a great substitute: Uchiwa is made up of 50% cotton + 30% Viscose + 20% silk
Noro has done it again with Uchiwa, a new yarn for Spring/Summer '22. Uchiwa is the Japanese word for "unfolding fan" however the naming of the new yarn is based less on the appearance of the fans and more on their cooling effect. The luxurious blend of cotton, viscose and silk ensure a cooling effect upon the skin, as does a fanned breeze from the leaf fan of the same name.
And with a super-generous 547 yards per 200g, you will have well-more than you need in one pre-wound mega-ball of yarn.
You can see our yarns in the inset photos on the top picture on this page and again below that.
We offer two colorways:
1. #6 Marugame. I see soft roses, teal, cream, turquoise, lime and pink in the main, the delicate hues of sprintime flowers. (Sorry, sold out)
2. #07 Asahikawa primaritly plays with varying tones of the purple family with some cream and pink and a small smattering of other colors.
No, Sandra didn't use beads but don't these marvelous flowers almost cry out for some embellishments?
We have added an option (via the drop-down menu labeled "Kits") to either get the yarn alone or yarn plus 20g of size 6/0 beads (that gives you roughly 240 beads) to place wherever it appeals to you.
If you have a preference on bead color, tell me. Otherwise I will chose for you.
