By Day, By Night

Recently I was invited to be a presenter at one of the Grindstone Knitting Guild meetings. I wanted to share a technique that I thought would feature some of the new bulkier yarns that are popular this season. Lo and behold the new shipment of Plymouth's Adriafil Collection came in that day. I couldn't decide which yarn I wanted to use...the Malizia with it's sparkle or the Mito with it's organic homespun feeling.....the result of being nondecisive is the By Day, By Night Scarf. I wrote the pattern up so that the Indian Cross Stitch was featured and you can now download the pattern here. I used one ball for each half. If you are going out on the town, put the sparkly side forward; have errands and just want to be warm, put the non-sparkle side forward. The members of the guild and I had a wonderful time, and I now have a great pattern to share with you. I am proud to say that we were recently the featured shop in the recent Plymouth newsletter and our pattern was part of the mailing.
