Mullein Pattern



By Amanda Jones

Mullein is a long rectangular scarf featuring a gorgeous array of patterns and geometry. This project uses short rows in stripes, mixed with openwork lace and bobbles to create a wonderful project for the advanced beginner who would like to practice more advanced techniques.

Mullein is the eighth pattern from The Almanac Series and is also available as a kit in either Amble, Canopy Fingering or Cumbria Fingering.

Note: Our Cumbria Fingering and Amble samples used almost all of colours A and B, with very little leftover. It is even more vitally important to check your tension before starting to knit your Mullein because you may run out of yarn, or need to buy more if you do not match the stated tension / gauge.
