Amusa Chevron Geshi Scarf

The Amusa scarf is just one of the beautiful patterns featured in Noro Knitting Magazine #20: Spring/Summer 2022, and is a perfect transitional accessory for cool spring mornings. Knit using Geshi - named for the Japanese word for the summer solstice - which is a delightful blend of viscose, cotton, silk, and wool in a DK weight. Geshi's subtle color shift is amplified in Amusa by working a few rows from one color of Geshi, then changing to another throughout the simple chevron pattern. 

Shop Noro Geshi HERE! The sample in the photo up top is worked in 02 Yokosuka and 07 Hokuto; you'll need one skein each of two different colors for Amusa.  You can find the pattern HERE. If you want the entire issue of Noro Knitting Magazine #20: Spring/Summer 2022, we have them right HERE
