Smokeberry & Lael
Naming my patterns is pretty fun sometimes. For this one I found a word I thought was pretty that occurs in A Game of Thrones all of I think 2 times… once referring to wine, and once to the vine. And when I found this stitch pattern with its little buds, and winding vines and leaves, well, it just seemed like it was meant to be!
I finished this a while back, but am just getting around to publishing it because in August I ended up with mono. Mono! At my age! Nuts. But it WIPED. ME. OUT. I literally thought I was dying, kid you not. And it took 8 weeks for doctors to figure it out. Anyway, I’m back, and I have 2 new patterns for you!
So here is Smokeberry. It is an infinity scarf that begins with a provisional cast on, it worked flat lengthwise, and then joined with a 3 needle bind off. It features twisted stitches, cables (with twisted stitches), and lace. There are some “special” stitches, but I made some video tutorials to help with those. This was worked in 1 skein of the gorgeous Madeline Tosh Sock in sugarplum.
If you make either, please get on Ravelry and post your project, because I love seeing them!
