The finishing touches have been added to my granny square scarf, a free pattern by Wool Thread Paint, made with King Cole Riot yarn in shade “Waterways.”
The pattern was fast-moving and the frequent color changes made it fun to work on. I used a 4mm hook throughout, and it took just under three skeins of this yarn (about 280g total) to finish – the scarf has a total of 72 squares (24×3) connected with the join-as-you-go method, plus a 2-round border.
If you want to try this free pattern, I can also recommend using Scheepjes Wanderlust, a beautiful gradient yarn that I used for a couple of previous projects (shown below). If you make the same size as mine, using a 4mm hook, it will likely take about the same amount of Wanderlust to finish it.
Both Riot and Wanderlust have some gorgeous brights as well as softer mixes. Here I share some photos of two different projects from a few months ago, using shades of Wanderlust:
My semester begins very soon – and shawl season is close at hand. For now, though, it’s raining buckets here today! I’ll leave you with some parting shots taken the other day that show the peak of lotus blossoms, and some ominous monsoon clouds above it all.
