FREE Travertine Scarf

This pretty scarf from Kelbourne Woolens should keep your hands busy, your mind calm and your body cozy! Knitting cables is actually really easy, substantially easier than it appears, so if you’ve been putting it off don’t be afraid to dive in.

We’ve listed a whole bunch of yarns that would work beautifully, all are soft and many are ON SALE to JAN 2. My favourite would be light, airy, and super soft Illimani Amelie. Malabrigo Mecha is a great option if you want a yarn with a depth of colour or multicolours. Estelle Colour Flow knits up in stripes, Fibre Co Tundra will make a classic, luxurious scarf. If you like brown Diamond Luxury Baby Alpaca Sport is a steal at only $12/skein. And if you just want a straight-up, basic yarn you can always rely on Berroco Vintage Chunky for a durable, machine washable knit.

Size

10” (25.5 cm) width, 66” (167.5 cm) length, after blocking.

Kelso

The Kelso shawl takes its name from a charming Scottish border town which lies nestled in the confluence of the Tweed and Teviot rivers. Known for the romance of its ruined abbey, graceful bridges, and cobblestone streets, it is a place to lose yourself in time as you wander along the riverbanks. Kelso captures the different textures of river and town, with wonderful threecoloured stripes, flickering eyelets and simple lace.The pattern was designed to feature the distinct beauty of the Road to China Light yarn, bringing its complex saturated tones and gentle lustre centre stage. This elongated triangle shawl is knit from the top down with increases made at the edges.
