Springtime Knitting with the Spring Daydream Scarf

Spring is a time for color!  Color is bursting from every green thing around us.  Now is not the time for knitting hot heavy wool projects like an afghan.

Spring is the perfect time to knit - and wear - the Spring Daydream Scarf.  The Spring Daydream Scarf uses bias fabric and vivid color to wake up your summery wardrobe.

Spring Daydream Scarf
You can daydream while you knit, because knitting the Spring Daydream Scarf is just about as simple as it gets. Most of the stitches of every row are just knits … no purls. The magic happens on the edges of the fabric. With the simplest of increases and decreases in those last couple of stitches, the entire fabric is shifted to a 45° bias angle adding drape and interest.

Spring Daydream Scarf
The Spring Daydream Scarf is knit with Elsebeth Lavold Hempathy yarn.  Hempathy is a blend of cotton, hemp and modal. You get the drape and weight that you'd expect from a yarn that's 75% cotton and hemp, but the modal (a type of rayon) adds a bit of sheen to this finer-than-worsted spring/summer blend.

You'll need three balls of Hempathy to knit the scarf, and we've got 18 bold colors to choose from!  Go with the Dark Turquoise, Gerbera Pink and Bleached White shown in the photos, choose one of the five combinations suggested on the bottom of the Spring Daydream Scarf page, or pick your favorite three colors for your own unique scarf.

Happy Spring!  And Happy Knitting! . . . . Amy
