Soar Scarf is part of the second edition of The Sun and Fog - a collection of knit and crochet patterns by Bay Area designers and dyers. I am thrilled to be part of this edition, working alongside some very talented people from the Bay Area fiber community.

Growing up along the coastal regions of South India, the beaches have always been a source of comfort to me. The sights and sounds around the sea are full of inspiration.

Living here now, in the Bay Area, I have often watched and admired the seagulls soar and fly over the expanse of sea with such abandon. I have tried to capture the flying form of the seagull in Soar scarf/shawlette.

SOAR Scarf is a shallow V-shaped scarf that can be wrapped around the neck generously, in a bandana/ kerchief style. The border is embellished with picot and twisted stitch details while the body is mostly simple stockinette and mesh.The gentle shaping and beautiful details make for a stylish and practical accessory in your wardrobe.
You can choose to knit your Soar Scarf in fingering(1 skein), sport(1 skein) or DK weight(1-2 skeins) yarns. My sea-green colored sample is knit in fingering weight and the brown one in sport weight.
