Phoebe by Josée Paquin is a gorgeous and chic new scarf / wrap pattern perfect for stash-busting or for incorporating those beautiful mini-skeins you may have been collecting (because they’re irresistible!) without a specific project in mind.  The designer used two skeins in two different shades of gray and 6 gradient mini-skeins for this sample but, as she notes, the colour combinations are truly endless!

To complete this project, you will need approximately 550 metres of fingering (or Sport weight) yarn in 2 colours (275 metres per colour) and approximately 38 metres each in six different contrasting colours.

For a colourful version, Madelinetosh Tosh Merino Light + Madelinetosh Unicorn Tails would be stunning. If you prefer something more along the lines of the original monochromatic version shown above, why not ARTFIL Belle or SweetGeorgia CashLuxe Fine or Tough Love Sock paired with Julie Asselin’s Leizu Gradient Kits?
