I found this amazing merino wool from Malabrigo Yarn in sapphire magenta at Fancy Tiger over Christmas break and started knitting this scarf the same day. Now, a month later, I just really want to finish it so that I can wear it before winter is over!
I’m using the vertical bobbles stitch from The Complete Photo Guide to Knitting. It’s such a fun intermediate pattern. With just four rows, it’s varied enough to stay interesting but simple enough that it’s easy to remember.
