About Gridland Scarf
The Gridland Scarf is a beginner-friendly project utilising the beauty of simple knit and purl stitches to make a big warm hug of a scarf. With clear illustrated instructions and a full range of tutorials, it is a perfect first knitting project or a wonderfully mindless project for more experienced knitters looking for a little zen on their needles. Designed to be a staple of the wardrobe in the cooler months, with minimalist, genderless style, and subtle details, and once you have knit your scarf, there are many ways to wear it!
This kit is for a colourblock Gridland Scarf in The Fibre Co.’s &Make Aran yarn. Kits are also available for a solid version as well as solid for &Make DK and striped for &Make DK and solid for &Make Super Bulky and colourblock for &Make Super Bulky yarns.
The Gridland Scarf is knit from one end to the other, using knit and purl stitches to create a gridded pattern in the fabric. Instructions for changing colours are provided in the pattern making it easy to change colours with each bold section of colour. The edges are kept tidy with a slipped-stitch selvedge. Weave in the ends, block your scarf, and voila -your first textured scarf is ready to wear!
Introducing: &Make from The Fibre Co.
&Make is a range of yarn for stitchers at every stage of their crafting journey, made with 100% natural, sustainable fibres from renewable sources in a stunning full palette of cheerful brights and nuanced shades created by overdyeing a range of naturally light and dark coloured fibres. This new range of yarns launches with 3 clean, minimalist designs ideal for beginners in Super Bulky, Aran and DK-weight yarns.
With a choice of weights, you will find the perfect yarn for your crafting dreams: be it the plump, round stitches of our Super Bulky created with a single-ply of 100% Peruvian Highland wool for a high-quality, totally natural yarn at an affordable price which works up with satisfying speed and remarkably light weight, or our 2-ply Aran made with a blend of super soft alpaca and Peruvian Highland wool which provides a satisfyingly ‘sticky’ yarn fantastic for keeping stitches on needles for beginners, or our 2-ply DK, with fantastically crisp stitch definition for those beautiful textured stitch patterns with a blend of Peruvian Highland wool, super soft alpaca and a bit of linen to add lovely drape.
These accessible yarns are designed to bring joy to every stitch of your sweater, accessory, or homeware project.
