Lace Ribbon Scarf in Pediwick

Sometimes an oldie is a goodie! And that's why we went all the way back to Knitty's Spring 2008 issue and chose to knit the Lace Ribbon Scarf by Veronique Avery. Just because the pattern is over 4 years old, doesn't mean it's not still very in style!

Knit One Crochet Too's Pediwick Yarn is a springy blend of bamboo and nylon. I use the word "springy" because it is spun with a natural stretch that helps keep things in place. This quality is perfect for socks and tanks. And even though a "springy-ness" is not really necessary for scarves, there's something about a knitted piece that you can grab, pull and tug on and it goes right back to it's original shape! I love things with this stretchy-but-won't-stretch-out quality.

I knit the Monhegan Tee back in March and fell in love with Pediwick. 

After that we knit a sock sample for the shop and it's been super popular with our customers.
This scarf is too! And a bonus - it's easy to make with a pattern stitch that's easily memorized. Perfect for throwing in your bag and pulling out at doctor's appointments, hockey games, lunch breaks, etc!

Does the bamboo nylon wear well for socks?
