Signature Yarns and Robin Hunter Designs - The High Park Scarf
Patrick of Signature Yarns and I will be releasing the patterns and kits for our collaborative work. Kits will be available here on the Signature Yarns site. The pattern is available on Ravelry. If you are a local reader it may also be available at the upcoming Knitters Frolic.
The High Park Scarf is a triangle scarf with extended points, it's worked with a top down construction technique. It uses an extra set of increases at the edge to create its unusual shape. The extended points can be used to wrap around the wearer’s neck. The stitch patterns are reversible. The main body stitch pattern is created with rows of knit and rows of rib. It appears in text and as a chart so the knitter can work from whichever format they prefer. The edging is simple 2 x 2 rib.
It uses Patrick's Painted Desert yarn by Knitting Fever, 4 ply fingering weight, 100 % Superwash wool. Each ball is 437 yards (400 meters), 100 grams (3.53 ounces). The sample shown uses approximately 415 yards (380 meters), 95 grams (3.35 ounces).
I'm sure you want to see lots of photos don't you? You'll see from the photos there are many options as to how you will wear this scarf.
