Pattern: Multidirectional Diagonal Scarf by Karen Baumer
Yarn: Tess's Designer Yarns Microfiber Ribbon
Needles: Size 6 circs
This is one of the few times I've seen a knit sample at a yarn store and said, you know, I really want to make exactly that. I've never knit before with this ribbon, but this particular skein caught my eye at the shop. (Melinda told me it was the last skein left of a special run she'd done for a recent-at-the-time show.)
They had several scarf samples up, and the one that caught my eye was a variation of this really easy triangle pattern. (The yarn itself comes with a free pattern for a dropped stitch scarf.) So I snagged the yarn, and came home and found a decently written variation of this pattern (there are a ton to chose from).
The ribbon yarn is interesting. The color is definitely gorgeous, but I can't say I see that yarn being a versatile option for lots of different types of projects. I'm not sure I'd ever buy it again, but it was fun to work with the once.
