  • Thanks Kay! I love this scarf – it’s so modern and fresh looking, and the right size for now and for winter. I like the ones done in the bright colors.

  • I am not a big fan of intarsia, but I am intrigued by this new method. I might have to give this pattern a try just to see how it’s worked!

  • No bobbles, no intarsia. But this I will try because I trust you. And I like to support designers that do something inventive. And there’s a coupon! Is there an app that looks like one of those coupon clipper’s organizer? Don’t you love the Indigo? I made a bag with it for a soon-to-be-published book and really liked it. Off to use my coupon.

  • I’m currently knitting a summer cardigan with that Berroco Indigo yarn. It’s pretty marvelous — especially for cotton. Now I wish I had more to knit up a summer scarf, too!

  • Speaking of dangling ends, when does the Big Floral Damask Thing get out of the “time out” corner?

  • Great choice for a summer scarf!
    I am loving the Berroco Indigo as well. It’s the Churchmouse featured fav 20% off yarn this summer, although their color selection is dwindling. I’ve started on their block stitch baby blanket in the Cut-Offs color. My gauge is loose like yours so I had to go down to a size 5 needle for the squares to look right.

    • I was thinking it would make a fab baby blanket!

  • Beautiful so far! Thanks for the coupon code, I’ve been admiring this pattern, so I bought it! I also really like her Albers pullover which also seems to do a clever thing with stripes. I have the yarn for that one at home already. 🙂

  • I found some gorgeous purple linen (at least I’m pretty sure it’s linen) at the Eileen Fisher Lab Store. Ten bucks!

    Still trying to pick a pattern!

  • I’m impressed!So tidy and no ends! I’m in the process of knitting a giant torso-sized tube of garter stitch in various cottony stripes at the moment, and even the very few dangling ends (the stripes are very very wide, I did think that part through) have me feeling a little anxious. So much so, that my first effort to type that word came out as “anxipus” which I now realize is actually a better word because it conveys both my emotional state and the expression on my face.

  • What a great scarf! What an interesting pattern! And I just stumbled across a mention of the Berroco Indigo and was intrigued, so thanks for the review!

    I also get into the search for “The Perfect Summer Scarf” pattern and yarn along about May every year. I picked a good striped shawl pattern and went with gray linen for one stripe and MadTosh Light wool in Birch for the other because I live where’s the weather is usually brisk and almost never sweat-inducing. It turned out OK, but was not the perfect scarf for me, so I gave it away. I’m currently working on the 2016 Scarf Two, (diferent pattern and yarns) with high hopes!

  • Garter stitch is not my idea of a rollicking good time, but I am so intrigued at this pattern that I am going to buy it just to figure out how it’s done!

  • Totally off-topic but I had to share my knitterly pride at this news: http://blog.oxforddictionaries.com/2016/07/new-words-july-2016/

    “Tink” is now in the Oxford Dictionary! It feels like recognition.

  • I’m definitely knitting this, I just don’t know when. My needles are a bit backed up at the moment 🙂
    I do wish I had watched the movie I purchased tonight (The Martian) before I read the blog. I know, I know, everyone else in the world has already seen but me. How I managed to avoid spoilers this long is anyone’s guess.

  • I love this pattern, I love Julia’s designs in general, and I almost always choose color ways for their names–twins separated at birth? Oh yeah and I also love the way you write, it keeps me clicking through your update emails every time (except this one; I was distracted the day it was published). Knit on!

  • Yes! to knitting during the convention(s). Last night my husband said, “You miss some good TV by watching it that way.” I thought, “you miss some good knitting watching it your way.”

  • I’ve had this in my queue for a while but your discussion of yarns clicked and I Know of three perfect combinations in my stash. I used the coupon and now I just have to make room for this between all my other knitting.
