I’ve been wanting to knit this pattern for a long time. The only thing that held me back was trying to decide what yarn to use.
Pattern: Flutter Scarf by Miriam Felton
Yarn: Wooly Wonka Tencel Blend Laceweight (Alpaca, Merino, Tencel) in colorway British Queen
Needles: US 2.5 Circular (3.0 mm)
Notes: I was afraid I may be borderline on having enough yarn so I eliminated 6 stitches from the width of the scarf. As it turned out, I had plenty of yarn. I don’t think the smaller width hurts the scarf though, I doubt anyone who’s knit this would be able to tell the difference.
For anyone considering using their remaining yarn from Desdemona for this pattern: the finished scarf weighs 55.6 grams. I still have 49.8 grams! Guess I didn’t need to worry about running out. Note that my weights are for the Alpaca/Merino/Tencel blend.
Finished measurements: 72 inches long by 7.5 inches wide. 112 repeats of the scarf body pattern.
It blocked out a bit longer than I really expected. I was targeting the same length Mim shows in her photos, but I’m tall so I fully expected to do extra repeats. At any rate, I’m still very happy with it at this length. It is so soft and feels wonderful to wear.
Finally, this is how I blocked it. I’m not unhappy with the result, but I think my fluttery ends will look even better when they relax a bit.
