In the run up to the craft fair booked for December I have started on some variations of the spiral scarf pattern. This one was designed as a 40th Birthday present and used Colourmarts Nettle 4/14NM double twisted 100% cashmere yarn. As this is a thick yarn I used the lowest tension on my knitmaster (10) and it ran through ok. I also included some ‘missed’ stitches to get a laddered effect and add some texture to the surface.

I then machine washed it at 30 degrees and it fluffed up beautifully. This resulted in quite a thick and ‘serious’ scarf – probably entirely appropriate for the Scottish winter…
