Angora Linen Stitch Scarf

Angora Linen Stitch Scarf – image color is too blue.

The Stash contained some vintage black angora.  It had been given to my when the original owner passed away.  She had started to knit the angora into mittens.

The angora inspired me to try some of the Patons angora blends. With coupons in hand, a black and a silver skein were purchased.

With some Stash purple, the angoras were destined for another Scrap Couture Linen Stitch Scarf.

However, after a few rows, it was obvious a black and purple variegated was required.

A rare splurge on Lorna’s Laces Angel (angora and wool) in Black Purl provided the perfect yarn.

Linen Stitch Color Blending

Linen Stitch Color Blending – correct colors

A few more greys from the Stash and the colors blended perfectly!

The angoras make this scarf lightweight, very soft and somewhat furry – further blending the colors.

The cast on for this scarf was 325 stitches.  It is 70″ long (not including fringe) and 7″ long.

While on the needles the scarf was 8″ wide.  The length grew and the width shrank after it came off the needles.

Love this color combination.  It was selected to wear with a black coat.

The variety of yarns used ranged from Worsted to Sport weight and from wool to cotton to angora.

Thankfully, gauge is not all that important when knitting Linen Stitch.
