Dropped stitches, fringe, stripes, and worked in the round…Leila has made a delicious project for us to savor. A celebration of our all-natural, botanically dyed Willet, Aiona uses one skein of all five shades (and is available as a kit!).
The scarf is worked in the round, on the bias, with a clever twist: An ample section of plain stockinette stitches interrupt the seed and dropped stitch motif, which is then cut down the center and unraveled to create built-in fringe (with two options given for adding additional fringe to the scarf).
Use our new naturally dyed shades, or head over to our original Willet palette to create your own perfect colorway.
