Today it is my turn to offer an Advent gift to you my dear readers in collaboration with Loop, London.
Alvaro is a textured colour-block scarf knit in scrumptiously soft Illimani Cadena, a super chunky chainette yarn blended from alpaca and merino wool. Using almost all of three skeins of the yarn and worked on 10mm needles, it knits up in no time, making it perfect for last-minute gift knitting!
Alvaro combines three different and reversible stitch patterns, built from knit and purl stitches and combined with alternating blocks of colour making it a relaxing knit for both newer and more experienced knitters alike. The pattern template enables you to mix, match and play with these textures and different shades of yarn to create your own design – simply follow the instructions in the pattern or swap the colours and textures around to make this scarf your own. I can’t wait to see what you do with it!
Read more about it over on Loop Knit Lounge which is where you will also find the free pattern PDF download. Enjoy!
