The Rachelle Chunky Lace Cowl Scarf is my newest free pattern available on Ravelry, very soon on my website and of course here. http://www.ravelry.com/patterns/library/rachelle-chunky-lace-cowl-scarf
I have been wanting to write some easy to knit patterns that most people could make for a while. When I received this amazing yarn from Malabrigo the other week I was immediately inspired to design one. The Mecha Kettle Dyed Merino Wool is like butter in your hands, lusciously soft with the stunning colours to entice you along your knitted path. I knew I had to use this yarn for my first free scarf pattern.
In order to keep it easy I worked it in the round with a few rows of lace to add that special elegant touch yet a modern feel with the stripes done in purl stitch adding texture to the design. The vibrant colour choice, Volcan #227 is so wonderful with it’s orange to a nice rust tone. The Mecha comes in other amazing colours, view them here at www.malabrigoyarns.com It was a real treat to work with such wonderful colours and quality of yarn. I highly suggest you try out their beautiful yarns if you haven’t yet. They are very addictive!
You can view some of my other designs with this wonderful yarn at my new Etsy store www.luxefiberknits.etsy.com The Luxe Fiber Knits collection will be various designs that bring the exquisite yarns to life with texture and style. I will be using high end yarns such as Malabrigo Yarns, ArtYarns, Hand Spun Yarns other specialty yarns to complete these designs. Less embellished give these designs a lighter price tag with the same high end quality of my other designs. The Mecha by Malabrigo will be one of the feature yarns used on designs on Luxe Fiber Knits.
I hope you enjoy this pattern. If you make one let me know how you liked it. Off to design more with this wonderful yarn.
