Romney Kerchief Pattern

Romney Kerchief Pattern

"A perfect piece to highlight a special yarn."

When Jared first released this pattern, it highlighted his handspun Romney wool. When we received our latest shipment from Carrie Defoe and her local fiber company, Insouciant Hair, and touched the snuggly soft worsted-weight Romney wool from just down the road on the Olympic Peninsula, we knew immediately what we'd like to sample! Keeping it in the family was a cinch—we just asked Brian Defoe to knit it up for us in his wife's Romney. And now we're all longing to make one. It really is the perfect pattern to highlight a special yarn, using up every last bit. One skein will just make a kerchief-sized piece, but there are instructions provided to make your piece bigger.

FINISHED SIZE
Kerchief size: 41" wingspan, 20" height at spine after blocking.

YARN
Approx. 245 yds of a light worsted-weight yarn like 1 skein Insouciant Romney (150g, 250 yds/229m) or 2 skeins Brooklyn Tweed Shelter (50g, 140 yds/128m).

NEEDLES
US 9 (5.5mm) 32"/81cm circular, or size to obtain gauge.

GAUGE
17 sts = 4"/10cm in stockinette stitch, before blocking.
14 sts = 4"/10cm in stockinette stitch, after blocking.

Our sample used every last bit of a skein of Insouciant Romney. If you'd like to up-size your piece at all, buy two skeins of this limited edition and scrumptious yarn!
