Karma is our most recent spring arrival from Berroco Yarns! This 100% cotton is dyed in softly shaded hues. It has a unique mesh construction that keeps the cotton light & airy and lends a lot of gorgeous drape, as you can see in our new free Karma scarf pattern!
Since Karma knits up at a chunky 3 sts/inch, we thought a quick knit spring scarf was in order. After a little swatching, we settled on our trusty favorite- stockinette stitch. Then, we a decided to add a simple drop stitch to open things up and create more drape.
Our result was a nice, long scarf suitable for wrapping around at least twice, if not more, for a cowlish look. Pastels are big this season, and Karma’s colors add a pretty, pale pop to a neutral look!
Here’s the free pattern! Happy spring knitting!
