squishy, reversible goodness
If you follow me on any kind of social media, you've probably seen a couple of sneak peeks of this scarf. It's been in the works for about a year and a half, and it is finally, finally here!
the circus arrives without warning...
Erin Morgenstern’s The Night Circus provided excellent inspiration for this scarf. In this wonderfully imaginative book, lovers of a magical circus travel around the world, following the excitement. Many identify themselves to each other by dressing all in black whilst visiting the circus, accessorizing with a single, scarlet accent. One girl knits the hero a warm woolen scarf to help induct him into the group known as the “Reveurs” (or,“Dreamers”). Here, I’ve dreamt up my own vision of what that scarf would look like: A wide, reversible cable meanders over a stunning patterned background, while the edging takes on a slightly tilted look thanks to tiny reversible cables. I wanted the overall effect to be magical, as though it were almost impossible; however, the knitting itself is quite simple! Each row begins andends with 1x1 cables, there is just one increase and decrease on each right side row, and the rest is knits and purls. You’ll cable the largest cable just once every 12th row, and every wrong side row is worked plain. You'll be finished before you know it!
chocolate bats, a sweet treat from the magical circus's courtyard
This pattern would make an equally beautiful cowl, and instructions for this modification are included in the pattern. The 10-page PDF also includes both written instructions and charts for each row of the pattern!
