Feather Flame Pattern

Feather Flame is a chevron patterned scarf knit on the bias.  It has a scalloped edge and a slight curve that makes it easy to wear. The stitch pattern can be scaled to fit any gauge and yarn weight. Self  striping sock yarn gives definition to the waves of the flame stitch pattern.

Instructions are given in both chart and written form. Difficulty is intermediate, you need to know about increasing and decreasing using a few techniques but all are explained in the pattern. 

Yarn: 1 skein Lion Brand, Sock-Ease Prints, 438 yards (401 meters) shown in Red Hot,
or any fingering or sock weight yarn.

Needles: Size 6 (4mm) straight needles.

Gauge: 24 stitches and 32 rows in a 4 x 4” (10 x 10cm) square in pattern stitch.

Other Materials: Row counter, sewing needle, stitch holder.

Finished size: Approx 60 x 8” (152 x 20 cm)

You could definitely use any wight yarn with this pattern and change the number of repeats to get the  width you desire, striping sock yarn just happens to be a great way to show off the flame stitch pattern without using multiple colors to create stripes. That said, the pattern still looks nice in solids.

I hope you'll give it a try. The pattern is now on sale in my ravelry store or you can buy it here, use coupon code spring14 to get a 50% discount for the rest of March.

Spring sale

I'm having a 50% off sale on 4 of my favorite spring friendly designs in my ravelry store. Easy is a kids and adult shrug that's super simple to make (one piece, 2 seams). Midnight blazer is my spring workwear, it is warm enough to wear as a coat when spring weather isn't quite here and it is perfect for over air conditioned offices. It also takes a weekend to make. Drop top is a basic cotton sweater with a modern drop sleeve and shaping in the shoulders. Finally, Spellbound is my personal favorite. I wear this crop top everywhere, it works for the day, the night, the beach, or anywhere. It also includes a non cropped version for those who aren't into the cropped trend.

There's really something for everyone here including the kids, so check it out. Remember to use coupon code spring14 when you check out. I'm going to go get more yarn to make another spellbound now, periwinkle or hot pink?
