Solstice Glow kerchief

On Sale
Added to cart
Either with the glow of summer or of winter, enjoy this Solstice as our Earth seems to pause at the extreme of its orbit.

This is a pattern for a kerchief using the Fair Isle knitting technique and worked in the round, from the point up and using a steek. Once the steek is prepared and cut, the top edge is bound off using an i-cord bind off. The steeked edge is finished with a simple crocheted shell motif.

Embroidery and Duplicate stitch embellishments may be added (a few details are given as to how the sample included these accents).

There are a number of long floats and some stranded colourwork knitting experience is helpful, in addition to basic crochet knowledge.
