It’s Time For a Sneak Peek!

I’ve been working on a new scarf pattern. It’s lacy and soft. It uses a lace pattern that is quick to learn and repeats throughout making it easy to follow. I’ve designed it in Malabrigo Arroyo. It uses the right twist stitch – one of my favourites. You saw it in Just a Little Twist and A Bigger Twist. Here’s a peek at the new pattern!

IMG_6751How do you do the right twist stitch, you ask? It’s easier than it sounds. You knit two stitches together (k2tog) but leave them on the left-hand needle. Don’t slide them off yet. Insert the right-hand needle between the two stitches just worked. Knit the first stitch again. Now you can slide the stitches off the left-hand needle. The number of stitches worked hasn’t changed. It’s not a decrease. You still have two stitches, but they are now twisted.

The finished scarf requires blocking to make the stitch pattern pop. This photo of the scarf – freshly blocked – really shows off the texture of the stitch pattern.

IMG_6600The pattern is being tested now (thank you to my awesome testers!) and it will be published very soon. I hope you like it!
