Neve Scarf

Neve Scarf

Cecelia Campochiaro’s Sequence Knitting classes in September really inspired me. The concept is deceivingly simple – knitting only 1 row patterns. But when you think of all the 1 row patterns you can create, the number of stitches you can repeat them over, how to increase them and decrease them, and how to incorporate color – the possibilities are endless. And exciting!

For my first foray, I chose Lana Vida Hannah, a perennial favorite. Made with baby alpaca, fine merino, and cashmere, it is a joy to knit. I chose two shades – cobalt and lake. First they’re used to create stripes, then cobalt is used alone to the end. The result is a pleated effect created by the stitch pattern and a fun play of color.

Neve Scarf

Neve takes three skeins of Hannah – two of the main color and one of the contrast color, and size US 8 needles. The finished scarf is 6.75 inches wide and 68 inches long.

With several color pairings to choose from, Neve makes it easy to dress up your favorite coat and to stay warm. Here are a few of our favorites.
