Firestarter Scarf

It's been a beautiful, warm fall so far in Chicago, but we have had a couple of chilly days. One of those days, I headed to Rosehill Cemetery with Allyson to shoot my new pattern, Firestarter Scarf.

I was very glad to have this cozy scarf, sitting on cold marble, while Allyson took photos. I love this thing.

Firestarter is a reversible, fast, simple (just increases and short rows), fun garter stitch knit. Big needles, simple shaping, and a dramatic edging give it a nice balance of mindless knitting and fun technique.

The short-row edging flies by, and you don't have to knit the wraps together with the stitches in this pattern! It's a time saver and gives the edging a more open, light look.

Lots of ways to wear it

Using 3 skeins of Brooklyn Tweed Shelter (or your favorite lofty worsted), there are so many gorgeous color combinations possible.

Since this is a quick knit, I'm thinking this is a perfect gift knitting pattern! I hope you enjoy it.

so pretty! You really used the edge shaping and the contrasting colour to great effect here.
