Stockholm Scarf - A fall staple!


I am so torn. Part of me wants to hold on to every last bit of summer for as long as I can! I love that I can run out in my bear feet and not get frost bite, I love the feel of the hot sun on my skin, slow evening walks to the ice cream shop. Summer is wonderful. But.... I want to wrap myself up in knits! I can't wait for fall to arrive!


I knit Julie's Stockholm scarf back in June, and it's taken me until now to take FO shots. It's just been way too hot for wool scarves! This is a great pattern and a perfect pairing for this yarn. I used TFA Yellow Label DK Weight yarn in the Sunset colourway. I knit mine in the round. I used all of 2 skeins, I just knit until I ran out of yarn and ended up with a gorgeous, generous scarf. It's warm, cushy, pretty and is sure to become a fall staple. I've been dying to do a proper FO shoot for a while now, and though it's certainly not cool enough for the outfit I'm sporting in these shots, plum coloured corduroys and a jean shirt are exactly what I feel like wearing with this awesome scarf!
