FREEBIE Gorgas Run Scarf

Gorgas Run Scarf

This FREE pattern scarf combines a number of qualities that make me really, really happy:

  1. The knit is fairly simple, but not too boring. Beginners can learn a new skill, more established knitters can easily do it while watching TV.
  2. It offers an opportunity to play around with colour in a simple, uncomplicated way.
  3. It’s not a bad way to use up a skein or two of skinny stash yarns.
  4. It makes a great gift that will be well received (that time of year is right around the corner).
  5. It’s easy to swap out and substitute yarns.

Yarn Options

Any fingering weight yarn will work, but I think Gorgas Run would be especially EXQUISITE made with Malabrigo Lace Baby Merino  (it’s a single ply merino yarn that knits well with two strands together, and the skeins are very affordable). The pattern is made with Semi-solid coloured yarn, but you can mix it up and use variegated colours if you want some drama.

Malabrigo Lace Baby Merino: 1 skein in each of 4 colours (swatch for a tension you like)

Manos Alegria: 1 skein in each of 4 colours

Cascade Heritage: 1 skein in each of 4 colours

Madeline Tosh Merino Light: 1 skein in each of 4 colours

Mineville Merino Sock: 1 skein in each of 4 colours

Materials

Notes

  • Yarn is held double throughout.
  • Use Colors A & D for your gauge swatch. You will need the entirety of Colors B & C for your project, but will have approx. 30g each of A & D leftover.

FREEBIE Pixel Stitch Socks

Pixel Stitch Socks

Worked from the toe up, these pretty socks would make an excellent spring project for the intermediate knitter. They’d look great with the subtle variations of the semi-solid, hand-dyed colour of Malabrigo Alegria. If you aren’t feeling that fancy, go for Cascade Heritage. You won’t go wrong with either, both yarns are made with super-soft merino wool that is blended with nylon to help them wear well.

Yarn Options

Malabrigo Alegria: 1 skein in each of 2 colours

Cascade Heritage: 1 skein in each of 2 colours

Materials

  • FREE Pattern
