Our Knitscene Fall 2014 issue includes a lovely collection of scarves, Mountainside Scarves to be exact. Late summer into early fall is a great time of year to both make and wear knit accessories; summer heat is abating, but it might still be a bit warm to spend long hours under a heaping pile of yarn (or inside a cozy sweater). Here's a brief look at the scarves in this story, please click the photos to be taken to the individual pattern pages!
Maria Leigh's Vista Scarf features an all-over cube pattern, made from clever combinations of stockinette, reverse stockinette, and seed stitches.
The Lory Shawl, by Bristol Ivy, is a graceful crescent with staggered welts. Bristol's technique article in this issue teaches you all about adding folds to your projects.
Felecia O'Connell's Stout Scarf is made from an easy slip-stitch pattern, great on a guy, but fun for a lady to wear as well.
The Larimer Scarf, from Holly Priestley is a fantastic statement piece, showcasing big cables and columns of eyelet.
Hey, I made this one! The Roslyn Farm Scarf is a great first intarsia project, and is named after the Christmas tree farm of my childhood.
Dani Berg's Soldier Canyon Scarf uses chevrons to create engaging patterning, perfect for showing off a variegated yarn.
We hope that you're gearing up for fall and colder weather with some scarf/accessory knitting! That cold weather will be here before we know it, and then we can wear our scarves while knitting our sweaters...it's all connected!
