On the needles… July 22, 2013 – Posted in: On the Needles, Project Ideas

L.1 by Antonia Shankland

This week we’re starting a new regular post theme on the blog in which Lisa, Mona, Samantha, and I will alternately provide sneak peaks of store samples and personal projects in progress as another way of sharing ideas and inspiration.
First up, on my needles this week, L.1 – a free pattern by Antonia Shankland for Shibui Knits.
I’d been wanting to knit this for ages but hadn’t cast on because I thought it was one of those patterns where only the original yarn would do – in this case, Shibui Linen. Happily, we are now carrying this yarn in store and this gem is underway.  As described by Shibui Knits, this scarf “shows off clean lines and a complementary color scheme for an airy warm-weather accessory.”
The scarf is knit with 2 skeins color A, 2 skeins color B, 1 skein color C, and 1 skein color D. It’s shown in Ivory (A), Ash (B), Apple (C), & Field (D).
Please note that Ivory and Ash are currently out of stock but we should be receiving another delivery shortly. That said, there are so many other beautiful combinations possible – don’t be afraid to experiment with colours to suit your own style and wardrobe!
