This kit contains the yarn and pattern to make the Wraparound Scarf, designed exclusively for River City Yarns by Stephanie Pearl McPhee. The magic of this scarf is that it uses different patterns in garter stitch to create interesting patterns with a handpainted yarn. You just knit! The scarf is designed with River City Yarns Hat Trick in mind. This jumbo skein makes a good size scarf and the always changing patterning makes the project interesting for the knitter.
- 1 skein of River City Yarns Hat Trick ( 150 g / 5.29 oz, 510 m / 550 yds, 80% superwash merino, 20% nylon); and
- 1 print copy of the Wraparound Scarf by Stephanie Pearl McPhee
Supplies needed (purchased separately):
- Knitting needles that allow you to get gauge (28 sts & 30 garter ridges = 4"/10cm in garter stitch). For Stephanie, that was 3.0mm (US 2.5),
- a set of needles in a smaller size for picking up stitches,
- Stitch holder or spare needle (if you're going to graft the pieces together)
- Darning Needle
About the Wraparound Scarf:
A true hockey fan isn’t afraid to brave the elements to cheer on the home team. Stay snug while you wear your colours proudly with the WrapAround Scarf. Stephanie’s scarf (shown in photo) is knit in RCY Hat Trick in Toronto’s crisp blue and white. Barb and Cynthia have hand picked some of their favourite colours to tempt you with!
This scarf is knit in two pieces, then grafted or sewn together, depending on your preference. Stephanie provides you with six sections, all knit in garter stitch but using techniques such as short rows and mitering as well as knitting horizontally and vertically to create shifting patterns in the variegated colourways as well as making a scarf that is reversible. Like in hockey, each section of the scarf is independent but pull together as a team. Swap out pieces (just like players) to create perfect chemistry. The WrapAround Scarf is designed to use up every last meter of your skein!
