Bias 'Before & After' Scarf - Shibui Linen Version

Bias 'Before & After' Scarf - Shibui Linen Version

"Airy and crisp, with softness and drape."

We’ve reyarned our wildly popular Bias 'Before & After' Scarf in summer-friendly Shibui Linen. So often we mix and blend our Shibui yarns, but for this project we wanted to show off this glorious linen all on its own. A panel of stockinette creates a sheer, breezy fabric. (See Kit's comments in the Knitter's Notes tab.) It's easy to stripe, and such fun to color block.

Grab the pattern below (if you don’t already own it) along with your favorite yarn color--you'll need two skeins. If you’d like to learn more about the yarn, just head over to the Shibui Linen page.

FINISHED SIZE
Approx. 8"/20cm x 94"/239cm.

YARN
2 skeins Shibui Linen (246 yds/225m each). Shown in Brick.

NEEDLES & NOTIONS
US 7 (4.5mm) needles, or size needed to obtain gauge.
One needle several sizes larger for binding off [we used US 11 (8mm)].
3-4 yards/3m smooth waste yarn, crochet hook [size G (4mm) or larger], and locking marker, for provisional cast-on.
3 short blocking wires.

GAUGE
Approx. 19-20 sts = 4"/10cm in bias stockinette stitch, after blocking.

Some projects need sharp-tipped needles, but this one may work best with less pointy needles. The yarn's unique chainette construction lends itself to knitting needles with blunter tips.

We thought we'd share Kit's impressions from knitting the sample: Working with this linen, with its chainette construction giving an "airiness" to the fiber, allows the knitter to feel the crispness of linen, but with softness and drape. The color of the sample - a faded burnt red, looks great with other colors. It feels like summer in your hands to have the linen on the needles!
