Seashore Lace Scarf

£3.50

This scarf is beautiful and the colour palette works so well with it too.  Although it is a lace pattern, it's not very difficult.  A little bit of experience crocheting is all you need to tackle it.  

You will need 4 skeins of the main colour (MC) and one each of the contrast colours (CC)to make the same sized scarf as shown , all in Plump dk.  I have used 4 Pavlova for the MC and one of Suagread Almond, Peppermint Cream and Pistachio Ice Cream for the CCs.  You will also need a copy of the pattern which you can get from the tab above.  You will also receive a crochet chart, whichg you may find easier to follow.

You will also need a 4mm crochet hook

Plump dk is a pretty standard doubleknit or light worsted weight yarn.   We have used it for straight double knit projects as well as projects specifying an aran weight yarn and found it works well for both.  Any needle size from 3.75mm to 4.5mm is great.

Ballband Tension (gauge):
Using a 4mm needle over stocking stitch: 22 sts to 10cm and 30 rows.

We really recommend not getting too stressed about exact tensions.  Everyone knits differently and your knitting tension can even change with your mood!  If you have found a yarn you really like and it's in the right ball park, why not buy a ball and give it a go?  Try a slightly different needle size if you are way off the right tension.  If you are putting all the effort into knitting then best to use a yarn you love!

Washing
Plump Superchunky and Plump DK are made from the highest quality superfine merino and baby alpaca.  These really are special and luxurious fibres and should be treated carefully!  Having said that both yarns are suitable for delicate hand washing.  Use a specialist detergent and do not agitate or twist the fibres to retain the gorgeous softness and shape of your garment.

Shedding
Because of the roving nature of our yarns (they are single ply, rather than tightly twisted), some shedding may occur.  The best way to deal with this is spray your finished garment with water and leave to dry flat, naturally before the first wearing.  This sets the fibres and should stop any problems.  If you want any further advice just drop us a line at info@mrsmoon.co.uk

Using your yarn
All our yarn comes in skeins.  Before using you need to wind the skein into a ball or you will get into an awful tangled mess!  If you are not sure how to do this you can watch our video here!
