Carnelian Bay Scarf
This is the final pattern in the Showy Garter eBook #1. You can see the others in the bottom 3 photos.
Knitting Nuances is about tweaking knitting techniques to give them added interest. Or core and most popular “Nuance” is the Showy Decrease. It’s been most popular here on Ravelry in the Manchester Scarf, Estrellita Hat and the Fiftyfifty sleeveless shell in Spring Knitty 2014. So far we’ve only used it with stockinette.
Now the same concept of adding a raised decorative element has been applied to the garter stitch and the results are even more dramatic. These garter-based projects will appeal to a wide range of knitters. Yes, it’s great for newer knitters, but also for those to like to try something new and great if you’ve always wanted to learn continental style knitting.
The Intro to Showy Garter eBook
This eBook includes several pages of tutorials in addition to the 4 sets of patterns. The designs start with a series of dish cloths that you can make or just use as swatches. That’s followed by 3 different scarf patterns the last of which is this side-to-side scarf that shows you how to start and stop Showy Decrease lines in the middle of a project.
