Free pattern Friday + New Store Sample: Wombat October 24, 2014 – Posted in: Free Pattern Fridays, Project Ideas, Store Samples

wombat5Cozy, chunky, and dramatic, the Wombat by Elke Becker is a fun textured shawl / scarf that will add function and flare to your cold-weather wardrobe. We paired Quince & Co?s Osprey, for structure and warmth, with Shibui?s Silk Cloud, for softness and halo and the result is a match made in heaven! I’m going to have trouble leaving this one in the store…

Although this is a simple and quick knit, the instructions are a little confusing. Reading previous knitter?s comments, I knit the Wombat in a simplified manner.
