new pattern: maru

Maru - "round" in Japanese - is a cozy circular scarf knit in the round with alternating cable and lace details. 

I knit Maru because I am the most awkward scarf-wearer of all time - no matter how I fasten them, they always end up totally lopsided or on the ground. I added cable and lace details mostly because I'm an easily bored knitter; while the pattern isn't strictly reversible, I think the large chunks of stockinette and reverse stockinette help keep the reverse side from becoming particularly noticeable.  

Maru has been test knit, and includes charted and written directions. Huge thanks to my awesome test knitters and to my boyfriend for taking these silly photos of me on the beach! 

  • 400 yards worsted weight wool (I used madelinetosh tosh vintage in Fig, 2 skeins)
  • size 7 circular needles, or size needed to obtain gauge.
  • stitch markers (recommended), cable needle and tapestry needle.
