It seems as though there is no shortage of creativity in our shop as we make our way through the spring season. Just when I think I might be running out of inspiration and projects to knit, someone comes in to showcase their latest project and voila! I have a new mission! Margaret’s Gallatin scarf is certainly no exception.
Margaret chose to knit her Gallatin scarf out of Berocco’s Remix: a yarn compilation of 100% recycled fibers. There are so many great things to say about this yarn. If you’re interested in going “green” with your knitting, this yarn is a fantastic place to begin. I also love the depth that you find in the colors. None of the colorways are entirely solid, each offering a beautiful tonality (and we all know how much I love tonal yarns). The yarn even contains a bit of silk and linen, which adds a wonderful softness to your project. In my opinion, all of these qualities make Remix a perfect choice for this spring scarf/shawlette.
Because this scarf is knit with size 10 ½ needles, it is a surprisingly quick knit, which means you’ll still have time to wear your scarf before the weather gets too warm. And even after it becomes a bit toasty outside, this is the perfect accessory to keep the chill away when you’re out of the sun. It’s open weave makes it light and airy while still staving off the chill. If you’re interested in knitting your own Gallatin scarf, just click here for the free pattern.
