Autumn Tango

Autumn Tango


As with many people I love the fall and everything about it. Large comfy sweaters come back in vogue, apple picking with the family, and, of course, the infamous Pumpkin Spice Lattes are just a few of the many reasons that the fall season has a special hold on many of our hearts. But to often I find this season too fleeting, it never can come soon enough and to often yields to the winter too easily. But with this beautiful pattern by Diana Rozenshteyn I’ve found a way to hold on autumn for just a little while longer.

This beautiful scarf was made with a mixture of two lovely Shibui Yarn; Pebble and Linen in the colors: Poppy and Scale respectively. These two colors blended together perfectly to create a lovely color that will be reminiscent of the fall foliage even long after it is gone. This project took about 30 hours to complete and I would rate it at about an intermediate level. The techniques that were utilized are provisional cast-on, twisted stitches (modified cable), and row counting.



The Yarn Attic featured this lovely patter for our September KAL.


This beautiful scarf pattern features leafy side borders and mitered bottom leaf edges. The pattern is available in both written and chart form. I recommend a DK to worsted weight yarn for this pattern. When knitting this piece I decided to mix together two Shibui Yarns for a greater depth of color. When mixing together various Shibui Yarns it is called “Shibui Mix”. Mixing together different yarn weights and fibers is a lot of fun to play with and can lead to beautiful, and surprising FO’s.
