Flare Scarf

I was thrilled when Shalimar Yarn asked me to come up with a design for their 2013 Indulge Me Club - a subscription where you get a monthly mailing of luscious yarn and a coordinating pattern! 

I debated for a while on what to do since the beginning of the year brought a lack of muse inspiration. But, then, the yarn arrived and I was struck by the vibrant glow. Oh, how it makes me crave summer sun. I mean, here it is, May SECOND, and we just had a winter snow storm yesterday. :::head bang::: I just pull out the pictures from my photo shoot and suddenly, I feel so much better. Warmth is coming... and Shalimar Yarns will certainly hasten that warmth with sheer will. 

This solar-infused scarf will heat up your wardrobe with amazing lace that looks like the beaming sun. Fire up your knitting with unique yarn over effects and an amazing colorplay of your multi-colored yarn. 

In the Flare Scarf, you'll find a Kitchener Stitch tutorial, beautiful photos, easy-to-read text, and a clear layout. The stitch pattern is both written and charted for your preference. This pattern is for the intermediate knitter.
