This week while working (if you call surrounded by gorgeous yarn, patterns and buttons work), one of my students stopped by Very Knit Shop in Los Gatos, CA to model her completed scarf from class. The focus of the class is to combine 20-30 different yarns, gauges and textures in order to create random blocks of pattern and color.
The gallery downstairs was having an artist’s reception and my student was attending, proudly wearing her scarf.
I’m always surprised when combining different yarns and ribbons with Loopy and Luscious by Natalie Wilson, another option for embellishment adding just the right amount of style and design. For the pattern, checkout http://www.knitty.com/ISSUEwinter02/PATTloopy.html
