Bias 'Before & After' Scarf - Shibui Rain Version

Bias 'Before & After' Scarf - Shibui Rain Version

"Hello summer knitting!"

We keep coming back to the Bias 'Before & After' pattern again and again. Here's why. Just the right balance of mindless and thoughtful - a little business on the ends of the knit row, otherwise a field of stockinette. No fancy lace or cables here - the star of the show is the yarn. With Shibui Rain, a swoon-worthy mercerized cotton with a chainette construction and a fantastic sheen, you'll enjoy making a scarf that's cool, lightweight and drapey. Easy to knit on-the-go!

A simple pattern and a great yarn - hello summer knitting!

Below you'll find the pattern, the adaptation for knitting with linen, and all the available colors of Shibui Rain. Two skeins is all you'll need for this summery scarf. (Note: the adaptation is written for linen, but the same directions apply for knitting with cotton Rain.)

FINISHED DIMENSIONS
Approx. 5½"/14cm wide* x 70"/186cm long or circumference, after blocking.
*Bias width across stitches in direction of needle will measure approx. 8½".

YARN
2 skeins Shibui Rain (100% cotton; 135 yds/123m each). Sample shown in Brick #115.
Or approx. 270 yds of an equivalent sport-weight linen or cotton yarn.

NEEDLES & NOTIONS
US 7 (4.5mm) needles, or size to obtain gauge.
US 10 (6mm) needles, or two sizes larger than gauge needle, for binding off.
Smooth waste yarn and size G (4mm) crochet hook for provisional cast-on.
Darning needle to finish.

GAUGE
Approx. 19 sts = 4", after blocking.

The adaptation has instructions for a linen scarf (with or without beads), as well as instructions for turning your scarf into a loop.

Even though the instructions are for linen, the same directions apply to the cotton Rain. We made ours plain, but you could easily add beads for a little bling!
