Day 3, scarf previews #7, #8, #9

And today it’s raining. So gray the sky, the street, the roofs, the pidgeons squeezed together in the eves. And so gray what remains of the snow. We love gray in all its subtle and quiet manifestations. And so do you, it seems. We sell lots of Frost and Storm, and oh so many of the heathers, Iceland, Kumlien’s Gull, Kittywake, and Sabine.

So of course, we have grays in our otherwise color-saturated scarf collection. Above is Elisa Contolini’s scarf in Lark/Storm. A simple welted stitch pattern worked in a rectangle. All you need is a tie at the ends to make the scarf something out of the ordinary.

Below is Karalee Harding’s traditional shawl in Chickadee, colors Kumlien’s Gull and Pea Coat. The border is a simple slip stitch pattern, the perfect balance to simple stockinette stitch. You can’t see it in this photo, but the center back is a wide column of garter stitch, bordered by the eyelet increases. Just enough detail to keep the knitting interesting.

Finally (for today), is a glimpse of Melanie Berg’s Iszara’s shawl, with stop-and-start stripes and worked in (love) garter stitch. Worked in in Finch/Kittywake and Carrie’s Yellow.

A quick note: We had submissions from around the world. Amazing. Elisa lives in Italy and Melanie in Germany. Learn more about this year’s scarf designers in our lookbook, launching Tuesday.
