Balmoral Scarf Knit Along

KnitDocDonna here to introduce the Balmoral Scarf knit along! Designed with versatility in mind, Balmoral is a generous scarf that will complement many different looks; from casual weekend wear, to work-week business attire.  Better yet, you'll get to choose your size. Unblocked, Balmoral measures at a standard sized 62" x 6".  Block Balmoral and you'll get up to a generous  80" x 7.5" to double wrap and drape.

A Little About This Knit Along
Balmoral is reversible scarf that looks great on both sides. This two skein project knits up fast and is loaded with texture and professional finishing details. We'll start with faux baby cables, transition to a simple-to-learn berry motif, then finish with the faux baby cables. While we're at it, we'll frame Balmoral with tailored corded selvedge. Be prepared for tons of compliments on this piece!

The Perfect Yarn for Balmoral
This knit along features Manos del Uruguay Maxima yarn. In rich and unique shades, Maxima is a beautiful kettle dyed worsted weight yarn. Choose a semi-solid shade and watch the berry pattern "pop" with a light and shadow effect or go dramatic with a space-dye shade.  You'll love the butter softness of this fiber and how good it feels against the skin.
