Utterly simple garter stitch pairs perfectly with slipped stitch mosaic patterning for the perfect beach-side project. The narrow asymmetrical shape of the Lana’i Scarf, knit in our CashLuxe Fine, lends itself beautifully to a variety of lightweight styling options, especially considering the endless colour combinations that are possible!
Lana’i Scarf came together on a whim – browsing through my stash, Silver and Summer Skin seemed destined to come together in something light, summery, and soft. I liked casting on a few stitches and following the whim of the colours, changing yarns when they told me to (what? Your yarns don’t talk to you? Grin!).
