This pure linen scarf is an ideal mid-season accessory and will add a splash of colour to any outfit.
In my last post I described a new dyeing technique whereby I used a piece of plain linen fabric that had already been knit up before dyeing it, with the aim of achieving clearer visible gradient shifts that could then be replicated once knitted or crocheted. The result was a linen crochet bag which you can see in the blog section "Making progress". Here is an example of the same dyed pre-knitted blanks which I unravelled to knit a colour gradient scarf.
The advantage of dyeing a piece of fabric that has already been knit up is that you get a better picture of how the colours on your finished object are going to look.
The pre-knitted, hand-dyed blanks will soon be available in our shop. You can just knit/crochet straight from the piece as you unravel the yarn, or you can wind it into a ball if you prefer. Crinkling is really not an issue.
The pattern for this scarf is available for all to use. It is on our free pattern page here.
It is a simple design and an easy knit, comprising mainly stocking stitch, with a row of eyelets from time to time. The ends are finished with a simple woven stitch.
