We are very excited! Just in time for Christmas, our first pattern, Winter Plumage Scarf is available now! 
Starting today you can choose to buy the print pattern on its own or one of our kits!
First let us tell you a bit about Nataliya’s gorgeous scarf:

winter plumage scarf“Winter Plumage is a richly textured extra-long cozy scarf. It is knitted in lusciously soft Swan’s Down yarn, a super brushed mohair wool blend.

scarfThe scarf’s central lace design stands out on a background of reverse stocking stitch. It begins with four main “stems” which grow smoothly into feathery foliage as leaves are gradually worked into the pattern. The main body of the scarf is a design that alternates these leaves and stems and looks more complicated than it is to knit. The leaves gradually drift out of the pattern, and the scarf ends as it began with four main stems. An attractive lace border of half stems frames the scarf1central pattern panel and edges the length of the scarf. The scarf is worked in one piece, knitted from end- to- end.scarf_front_full

Beautiful as well as functional, not only will you stay snug when you wear this luxuriously soft scarf, but you will feel delightfully elegant when you put on these fine feathers and show off your own Winter Plumage!”


kit1The kit we are offering will include four skeins of Swan’s Down yarn, enough to make the scarf to Nataliya’s generous dimensions (16″/40.5cm wide x 96″/244cm long), along with a printed copy of the pattern slipped into its own sheet protector.  The pattern comes with a complimentary coupon that will allow you to download a copy of Winter Plumage Scarf to your Ravelry library.  Your kit is neatly tucked into an attractive reusable little bag that will be perfect to carry your scarf in progress (and future projects) in.  The kit does not include knitting needles so you will need to provide your own set of 4 mm (size 6 U.S.) knitting needles. 

patternAlternately the print pattern with complimentary Ravelry coupon is also available on Les Belles Bouclettes.

At the moment this kit is available in three fabulous colours!  First you have the rich simplicity of the undyed ivory shade that Nataliya knitted her scarf in. 
Next we have a luscious hand-dyed wine red with wonderful purply under tones (truly like a young wine), that looks as warm and snugly as the finished scarf feels. red_swans_down

And third (but by no means last) is a hand-dyed sumptuous shade of dark ocean blue that will compliment the scarf’s texture and design.aquamarine

Our talented designer is already at work, planning the pattern for the Winter Plumage hat.  We’ll keep you posted!
