When Nathalie volunteered to knit up some shop samples I was delighted! She’s an amazing knitter and I couldn’t wait to see what she’d whip up with some of our favourite yarns. The first sample she knitted is this Ladder Scarf using Malabrigo Sock in Playa and it is so beautiful that everyone who comes near our knitting section wants to make one. We’ve been selling the yarn like crazy!
Nathalie auditioned a few different lace patterns to find the perfect match for this yarn. She wanted a fairly linear pattern and something that would happily lay flat and not curl up when you wear it. The winner was the Garter Stitch Lace Ladder pattern, which has been adapted from a famous stitch dictionary, A Treasury of Knitting Patterns by Barbara Walker.
Malabrigo Sock comes in 100 gram/400 metre skeins. This project requires only one skein to make a long scarf. It’s wrapped around twice in the picture below!
