Inlet Scarf is inspired by one of my favourite places, a secluded beach on the remote side of Burrard Inlet, offering breathtaking vistas of towering mountain ranges an their fleeting reflections in the rippling water. The tiny crabs peeping out of the bottom of rocks and scurrying away the second they hear steps approaching. The peace that is broken by squawking seagulls and waves of an incoming tide. It’s the quiet place full of nature’s sounds which I tried to translate into the stitches on my needles. I love the magic of geometric shapes and aimed to create a pattern that is universal, simple and appealing.
Generously sized to wrap around the neck twice, it is an ultimate cozy piece to be worn for a walk in downtown or an evening in the cabin.

It’s a simple construction scarf consisting of two end panels in solid colour and middle section knit with two colours in mosaic knitting technique.
The pattern includes written instructions and mosaic pattern chart.
