Hope you all are doing well. If you’ve visited Purl Avenue recently, you might have noticed some changes to the website. Last week I added a couple of new resources, Knitting Needles Conversion Chart and Yarn Weights, that will help you on your knitting adventures 🙂 In addition, I’ve moved Knitting Abbreviations and Tutorials as well as the two new pages to Knitting Resources in the main menu. This will help with navigating the site.
Now on to more exciting news. I am very happy to say that my Spring Lace Infinity Scarf is finally complete! This project has taken me one whole month to complete (includes both designing and knitting). And during this month, I have seen the arrival of Spring and added a stash buster project, the Easy Day Knitted Headband to the free patterns collection.
Those of you who’ve followed the progress of this scarf on social media know that this scarf is knitted using Shibui’s Reed yarn. I went with linen because it is a light and breathable fiber which makes it perfect for warm weather. Depending on where you live, this linen scarf is perfect for Spring and Summer. Another thing to point out about linen is that the yarn is somewhat course to the touch but will soften after every use.
The edging of the Spring Lace Infinity Scarf has a 3″ (7.6 cm) lace design and the body is knitted using a combination of stockinette stitch and stockinette elongated stitch.
After blocking, this scarf measures about 14″ (35.5 cm) wide with a circumference of 64″ (162.5 cm).
