The Design

The creations of  Svetlana Gordon are quite unique and her patterns very well explained.  I find myself drawn to them again and again.

This one she calls Scarf Lavender, and it is a wonderful knitting adventure. 

*****

Please get the pattern directly from the designer on her Ravelry page here

We are offering somewhat smaller kits in the colorways described below.  These are similar to what she used but in sets of two skeins instead of four total -- read below for details. 

*****

Svetlana used for her original Malabrigo Sock.  This is a plied superwash merino with 440 yards/ 100g. 

For Yarn A, for her original wrap, she used roughly half a skein each of two different greens (45g each) of Ivy and Lettuce.   These are both tonal blends of green, Lettuce being bright greens ranging from lime to chartreuse to grass green and Ivy being darker tones including pine, olive, and grass. 

These yarn colorways are back in stock ready for you to choose from. 

For Yarn B, she used 130g (just a bit over one skein's worth of yarn) of Indonesia, a variegated blend of greens, blues, and purples. 

****

So if you are going for the look that closely duplicates Svetlana's design in color and in size (as you see it in these photos) you would want the two different green skeins one each of Ivy and Lettuce and two skeins of Indonesia (four skeins total).  This would give you a finished size of about 30cm x 190cm (that's about 11" x 75")

This would mean getting one each of both kits as we offer them here. 

*****

She mentions that the size is easily customizable. 

So honestly, as I looked at this I saw that you could likely make a great scarf with just two skeins (one of the greens and one of the variegated).  It would lack somewhat in depth of color and also, of course, in size.  It would for sure also look great though, in my oh-so-humble opinion and I have found that pocketbooks also matter....

And so we offer these kits in two-skein packages.

*****

So, to summarize:

  • We have set up our kits with only two skeins.  You can choose one Indonesia with one Lettuce or one Ivy plus one Indonesia. 
  • If you decide you really want the original look, go for two kits, as I describe above, one of each. 

In other words, what would be needed to re-create the original scarf would be a total of four skeins -- one of each green and two of the variegated.  This can be achieved by ordering one of each of our kits ((two kits total: you would end up with two Indonesia skeins + one Ivy + one Lettuce).

And alternatively, if you decide that you don't need quite as large a scarf nor quite as many colors, one of our kits will serve you very well.
