Stockholm Scarf

July 21, 2011

I’ve been doing all this Christmas knitting for next year, but I couldn’t help myself when I purchased some Madelintosh yarn. I just had to start this project for me. I’ve had Julie’s Stockholm Scarf in my Ravely queue for a while now and I thought the Madelintosh was perfect for it.

This pattern was fun to knit – there’s just enough variety of stitches to keep you interested yet you can still watch a movie while you knit. There’s lot of yarn overs and pssos, which create a lofty, super nice scarf.  And the Madelintosh is such a gorgeous, soft yarn it was a pleasure to work with.

This is  really a cowl, which is long enough to double nicely around your neck.  I made mine about 15″ wide and used almost all of the Madelintosh.

Now if we can just get rid of this heat wave we’ve been having!

Pattern:  Stockholm Scarf
Needles:  US # 10, 40″ circular Addi Turbos
Yarn:  Madelintosh dk in Moorland

  1. Very nice! You have to do a “selfish” knit now and again. How else does one stay motivated!? 😉 I love the green and the pattern. Perhaps one of these days I will get to experience the fabled Madelintosh. I read such an interesting article about her the other day. Off to have a look at the pattern now!

    This is some serious dedication you have to knitting all your Christmas gifts throughout the year.

  4. This is gorgeous! The color, the pattern, the texture…love it all. I’ve just entered the knitting world and am totally mystified by “knitting on the round” and other such lingo, but I can’t wait to learn more. Just discovered your blog today and I’m adding you to my list of ones I follow. Thanks for a showcasing such beautiful work…I have much to aspire to ;o)

  6. Ikeuchiaya: You can either knit it on straight needles or in the round, although knitting it in the round is easier. Read about it here:

  7. […] the skeins. And Moorland is one of my favorite colorways and I have used it before for my awesome Stockholm Scarf and my Guernsey Wrap. However, this time the difference in the skeins was amazing – you can […]
