Here are two patterns just off my knitting needles and coming in November.
Having three very girly daughters who love pink means the color will rub off on me! It sure has of late.
The first example is this Striped Mohair Silk Scarf/Stole knit in an Orchid Pink/Raspberry color combination.
The ultra-girly colors inspired me to create an ultra-feminine design.
I'm in love with this lace pattern and love it even more with color changes that bring out the pretty scalloping (is that a verb?) rows. I chose to do irregular stripes, but of course you can choose to do it differently and choose your own fave color combo.
Two-colored fringe give the ends a dramatic flourish. The sample shown is actually wide enough to double as a stole and a generous scarf. A narrower and slightly shorter scarf size (that uses only 2 balls of yarn) is included in the pattern instructions as well.
Next up is the Rose Cabled Circular Scarf.
Mixed texture cables are worked in with wide ribs to create a simple, yet sophisticated design. And of course it's worked in the round so it's seamless and a breeze to finish!
Looks great as a long circular scarf or is easily looped around the neck twice as a double cowl. The silk and alpaca blend yarn (new Magnolia yarn from Classic Elite) in a gorgeous shade of pink bordering on fuschia is a very flattering color on any woman, IMHO.
OR, knit it in a nice blue, grey, or brown for a handsome men's scarf.
BOTH of these patterns will be released in November and are perfect for gift knitting or treat-yourself knitting!
