Gilmore Skinny Scarf

The skinny scarf is the in scarf this season. I fell in love with the idea. What’s not to love about a mostly knit rib stitch and planned pooling that turns out to be a fashionable check pattern? And don’t get me started about silky cashmere. This scarf is simply heaven to knit!

PLANNED POOLING
If you choose the firestorm colorway of this yarn, the seed stitch rib is the perfect stitch for a first planned pooling project. Knit about 4 inches. If you don’t see the check pattern emerge, pull it out and cast on again starting on a different color place of the yarn. Repeat as necessary. When you finish a skein, make sure the yarn of your new skein is running in the same direction as the skein you just finished and match the colors as close as you can. Remember, this beautiful yarn is hand painted, so your checks won’t be perfect. Instead of a printed-like design, you will have a work of art!
