Today I’m here to share my Brassica Scarf. The yarn you see here is the lovely Ancient Arts Fibre Crafts 100% Superwash Merino Wool 3 ply fingering/sock. There are 372 yds [340 m] to a skein. I offer this in two different lengths: Standard 6″ x 65 1/2″ or Extra-long 6″ x 77 1/2″. The standard length uses one skein of each color, the extra-long requires 2 skeins of the main color plus 1 skein of the accent color. I used French Lilac for the main color and Beaujolais Nouveau for the accent color.
The scarf begins at one long edge and is worked in a textured ripple stitch. Post stitches provide the texture. No worries though, this is really a pretty easy stitch pattern. If you’ve never tried post stitches, check out my Post Stitch Post. After completing several rows of the main stitch pattern, you complete the scarf by edging just one side with a complementary edging. I really love asymmetry and unexpected details, such as this one-sided edging.
I actually wore this scarf out and about today and loved how it completed my outfit.
