Argyle Autumn

Classic argyle pattern can be seen on all sorts of knitwear and hosiery, but it is always more fun to find things in a little unexpected places. I used the repeating pattern in a scarf that is basically a closed loop tube worked in the round, as this seemed like the best way to incorporate stranded colourwork.

The pattern for this scarf can be found in the newly published Knit Now, Issue 13.
Knit Now is a terrific UK based magazine, concentrating mainly on trendy accessories and quick little knits.

Choosing, which colours to use in this scarf, was quite easy: something blue to go well with denim and something contrasting like the autumn sun. It would be really exciting to see the scarf in other colour combinations.

The styling and setting is just lovely. I do hope to visit the English countryside someday - some autumn, preferably.

This sample scarf was knitted using the wonderfully soft Artesano Superwash Merino yarn in shades Navy, Sand Yellow and Grey.
