The Belmont Scarf (or stole depending on your preference) is one of my favourite designs. It's geometric and graphic yet still incredibly soft and pretty. I originally designed it to feature our Pink Label Lace Weight yarn (shown at right in the Club colourway 'Fig') but even before I was done knitting the lace weight sample I knew that I wanted to try it in a heavier weight as well. I knit the 'Chartreuse' version in our Amber Label Cashmere/Silk DK Weight yarn and it's heavenly. And then of course I had to give it a whirl in fingering weight as well, so mom whipped up the gorgeous 'Deep Sea' version in our Red Label Cashmere/Silk single ply yarn. You know what? I'd be seriously hard pressed to pick a favourite. All three are beautiful in their own right. It all boils down to what you like to knit and wear.
I've added notes to the Ravelry pattern page on how I modified the pattern to be knit in the different weights. The lace weight version took 1 skein while the other versions required 2 skeins each. The pattern is relatively easy to modify in terms of length since it’s worked from the center out. Knit the first half until you've used about half your yarn and then work the second half to match.
Don't forget, all of my self published patterns are on sale until the end of day on Saturday!
And now for some gorgeous close ups of that fabulous textural lace!
