Open Air Wrap

Pattern: Open Air Wrap by Purl Soho

I realized this morning that I haven’t been putting many of my knitting makes on the blog.  This is probably because I tend to keep my notes and pictures about those projects on Ravelry.   But, upon further reflection, I think it’s because I don’t have as many knitting patterns that I am excited about.

If a knitting pattern doesn’t thrill me after the first time, I don’t have as much desire for a second try with modifications.  But I do have a couple patterns that I have loved so much, I’ve made them more than once.  This scarf pattern by Purl Soho is one of those – and it’s a FREE pattern.

I hate knitting a scarf.  I find it very boring.  However, this one is totally worth it.  I made this first gray version with Purl Soho’s Linen Quill yarn in Stonewall Gray (and thus began my obsession with Linen Quill – I know it’s expensive, but it’s totally worth it).

I won’t say knitting this was fun, but the end result is beautiful, I reach for this scarf again and again, and I always get compliments on it when I wear it.  It’s just warm enough for winters in Georgia.

This second version is made with a merino wool that I picked up when I was on vacation in Austria.  I did actually make some modifications to the pattern on the second version.  I had the same yardage and decided to make the second one thinner and longer.
