Colour Block Scarf
Inspired by the colours used by Georgia Farrell in her new Rowan design collection, My London, our newest shop pattern is knitted in my newest favourite yarn - Rowan Alpaca Soft.
The pattern does specify about 500m of yarn. Rowan Alpaca Soft has 125m per ball. If you use a DK yarn that has less meterage per ball (like Socks Yeah DK which has 112m per 50g) you'll still get a good sized scarf but it will be slightly smaller.
I also think this scarf would look and feel amazing in Rowan Alpaca Classic!
***Update - check out these ideas for using Rico Classic Baby DK ***
You can also knit this scarf using leftovers, like our 4ply scrappy version, striping and blending colours as you like.
A shop printed pattern is free with any purchase and you can download a copy here.
I've also put together 4 kits in Rowan Alpaca Soft. Like all our kits it has a 10% discount compared to buying the yarn separately (it also comes with the pattern... but you will need to add needles!)
Teal Mix kit (the original!) in shades Green Teal, Baby Blue, Autumn Gold and Blossom
Blue Green kit in Hunter Green, Clover, Teal Green and Naples Blue
Neutral Blue kit in shades of Classic Brown, Rainy Day, Charcoal, Baby Blue
Berry kit in shades of Autumn Purple, Mulberry, Hyacinth, Blossom
