Longshadows

Pattern: Longshadows by Anne Hanson for the August installation of the Fall in Full Colour Club.

Made for: me

Size: scarf

Yarn: Spirit Trail Fiberworks Nona in “Autumn Aurora” (colourway exclusive to club)

Needles: 3.0mm circulars

Gauge: 6 stitches per inch in stockinette

Started: August 15/11       Finished: September 11/11

Modifications: added two extra repeats per side for a total of 4.

This isn’t a yarn or colourway that would normally jump out to me at a yarn store but after working with it I think it is absolutely lovely and knits up even softer than in skein form. This is only the second scarf that I have grafted as it is meant to be a symmetrical scarf although the pattern does mention you can go asymmetrical if you don’t mind the leaves going up one side and trailing down the other.

I ended up with only 5g of yarn left once I grafted the two halves together but love the extra length the four extra repeats give me. It has definitely been a go to scarf this season.
