Spring Kerchief 

Spring Fever anyone?

We're not sure if it's the grey skies or the unseasonably warm temperatures that have us longing for Spring, but whatever the case...we've got the Spring Kerchief on our minds! For this gorgeous, lightweight shawl, we used two different colors of Malabrigo Yarns Silkpaca held doubled. The gradation keeps the simple pattern interesting as you knit, and the doubled laceweight yarn makes a super cozy fabric. For a subtle effect, choose two colors with a similar value: perhaps Glazed Carrot & Ravelry Red or Solis & Bobby Blue. For a higher contrast, go with Lettuce & Natural. There are loads of combinations to choose from and the possibilities are almost endless. Best of all, you'll only need ONE skein of each color!

*a note on needle size...the pattern calls for a US 0, binding off with a US 3, we went rogue and knit our sample with a US 4, binding off with a US 6! A fine example of being the boss of your own knitting...

Fixing Mistakes 

Fix-It Class!!

Let's face it: we ALL make mistakes when we knit. We drop a stitch or forget a yarnover and don't see it until the next row...and sometimes we're not quiiiite sure how to fix it!
