Ellora Scarf

Oops. Sometimes the best intentions are thrown off by tech issues. We are now fixed and back up and running- brace yourself for lots of Cumulus patterns and chat!

Another Cumulus pattern just went live that makes great use of the delicate loft that Baby Suri Alpaca and Silk provides. The Ellora Scarf pattern is designed by Sara Anthony- Boon aka Textureknit and it is just in time for those looking for simple Christmas knits for loved ones.

A curvaceous cable panel runs between textured moss stitch in this pretty scarf, using soft and warm Cumulus yarn. This scarf is perfect for novice knitters taking first steps into cables as the pattern provides clear written and charted instructions.

This scarf uses 3 balls of Cumulus (shown here in Silver) and is worked on larger needles to make best use of this lofty yarn with a great halo. The cables form soft ripples down the scarf as a result of combining larger needles and thanks to the airy fabric Cumulus can provide, this scarf will work through most seasons as it is warm but not dense. 

We’ve started creating a useful Pinboard over on Pinterest to help knitters fine tune techniques from this week’s patterns. You can find blocking and beginner cable tutorials that are great for helping novice knitters get to grips with techniques the Ellora Scarf uses.

Be sure to check out Sara’s blog too where she’s not only talking about this latest release but hosting a giveaway too!
