Kirkwood ScarfAugust 10, 2016
It’s finally done – the Kirkwood Scarf. This project was such a fun knit, with three rows of cables running down the scarf. It’s knitted up in nice soft Brooklyn Tweed Shelter. A big thank you to Brenna for this awesome gift!
The tubular cast on and bind off are both worth doing. The finished ends of the scarf will be stretchier and nicer. The directions in the pattern are easy to follow, just like all of Brooklyn Tweed’s patterns. They are so well written.
There are two chart patterns from which to choose and I chose Chart A. I liked the nubby effect of those stitches in between the cable rows.
This yarn blocked up so nicely. I put it in a little bath with some Soak and the stitches just laid right down into place and were so soft. I did the blocking with wires down the sides that the pattern suggested, and that worked out great.
