Stockholm Scarf - A fall staple!

stockholm2

I am so torn. Part of me wants to hold on to every last bit of summer for as long as I can! I love that I can run out in my bear feet and not get frost bite, I love the feel of the hot sun on my skin, slow evening walks to the ice cream shop. Summer is wonderful. But.... I want to wrap myself up in knits! I can't wait for fall to arrive!

I knit Julie's Stockholm scarf back in June, and it's taken me until now to take FO shots. It's just been way too hot for wool scarves! This is a great pattern and a perfect pairing for this yarn. I used TFA Yellow Label DK Weight yarn in the Sunset colourway. I knit mine in the round. I used all of 2 skeins, I just knit until I ran out of yarn and ended up with a gorgeous, generous scarf. It's warm, cushy, pretty and is sure to become a fall staple. I've been dying to do a proper FO shoot for a while now, and though it's certainly not cool enough for the outfit I'm sporting in these shots, plum coloured corduroys and a jean shirt are exactly what I feel like wearing with this awesome scarf!

  3. Beautiful scarf T~ I love it in the round. I am so ready for fall too. It been summer in GA since about March - ack. Maybe if I start a scarf and a pair of fingerless mitts I can hurry fall along?

  4. It looks great, and that colour is gorgeous! Nice and bright, but it'll look great with fall and winter clothes once things cool off.

  6. The Stockholm scarf is on my list of "must knits!" and seeing your FO has inspired me to push it up on the list. The color is perfect and you look beautiful.

  9. Beautiful pattern, beautiful colour!

    I'd been wanting to do something with the Sunset colourway since I saw it at my LYS, but gifted my one stashed skein to a dear friend who needed serious cheering up and de-stressing last month (it worked!) while I pondered what I wanted to make with it before buying more.

    This is at the top of the list of possibilities now!

  15. Gorgeous and much too warm for Florida, pretty much ever.

    Just think, though, that if you truly had "bear feet," you could run around shoeless in any kind of weather!

  16. Love, love this scarf!! I printed this pattern off of Julie's website ages ago and purchased the yarn, TFA green label in OOAK colorway. Seeing this post makes me want to get started on it right away.
