Knit Along: Spring Meadow Scarf
Welcome to AllFreeKnitting's FIRST Knit Along! We're always excited to host new things and we thought a knit along for a gorgeous scarf was going to get you pumped. We've joined forces with Red Heart and extremely talented knitter Heidi Gustad of Hands Occupied to bring you this fun Knit Along, and one lucky winner will win a great prize pack from Red Heart.
We're excited you're here and checking out all the fun and we hope you'll join in. We love this stunning scarf already and we promise it will be worth the wait.
Designed for the spring 2015 All Free Knitting Knit Along, the Spring Meadow Scarf uses three lovely lace patterns, custom seamless transitions and bright, light yarn to achieve the perfect spring/summer scarf. The lace motifs are inspired by nature as a nod to the season. The way the colors of the Red Heart Boutique Unforgettable yarn transition into one another looks so professional, it's almost unbelievable that this knit scarf pattern requires no colorwork. If you love the look of this ethereal scarf half as much as we do, you'll find yourself with a new favorite knit at the end of these six weeks!
We have some VERY exciting news! Our friend Heidi from Hands Occupied is hosting a knit along with us. Watch for more information and join us in the #springmeadowKAL. Red Heart Yarns is sponsoring a great giveaway in conjunction with this KAL, so knit along with us, it's going to be so much fun!Posted by AllFreeKnitting on Monday, May 11, 2015
