Aspen Whispers Scarf welcomes spring…

aspen whispers full viewSometimes a design comes together exactly as envisioned in my head…like Aspen Whispers Scarf did. My newest pattern just seemed to knit itself!

It all started with a single skein of Dream in Color Smooshy with Cashmere, in a lovely shade of Spring Tickle. And a small grove of Aspen trees in front of my home..beautiful trees that seem to ‘whisper’ when a breeze gently rustles the leaves.

Aspen Whispers Scarf features two different yet similar lace borders..top and bottom..each inspired by the gentle Aspen leaves. The soft crescent shape easily wraps & stays where you put it, and allows for versatility in styling..as does the generous length. A light and fabulous drape is achieved by using a needle size larger than suggested for this yarn.aspen whispers pin view

Beginning lace knitters will enjoy the simplicity of the pattern while the more experienced knitter will enjoy the rhythm of a design that is easily memorized. The Smooshy with Cashmere is a ‘dream’ to knit with, although pretty much any sock or fingering weight yarn is suitable for Aspen Whispers Scarf.

This is a scarf I find myself wanting to wear often…and I think you will too.

Happy Knitting ~ Jean
