These scarves designed and knit by Kate Manning were inspired by Laura Aylor’s Lizard Ridge. Knit in an ultra soft handpainted yarn, these are scarves anyone would love to bundle up in. The knitting is not difficult but interesting and the handpaint lands differently in the short-rows each time making it hard to put down because you want to see what the next section is going to look like. These scarves can easily become an addiction!
The display scarves have made such a splash at the store that our supply of the Misti Alpaca Hand Paint Chunky is dwindling fast. More is on order and expected to arrive in September with plenty of time for holiday gift knitting!

Note: When working a stitch that has been wrapped on a previous row or short-row you may work as normal as the color variations and halo of the yarn partially conceal the wrap. If you wish to fully conceal wrap on a RS, use right needle tip to lift wrap up and over the the stitch it wrapped so it is the second stitch on the left needle and k2tog tbl. If you wish to fully conceal a wrap on a WS, use right needle tip to lift wrap from the RS of the fabric up and over the stitch it wrapped so it is the second stitch on the left needle and p2tog.
