Lovelock is a wide, comforting scarf utilising simple knit and purl stitches to create a textural, geometric design. It features tubular selvedges for a neat, minimal edging that looks beautiful on both sides of the fabric.
This scarf was designed in memory of my lovely friend, Ciera, who we lost to suicide in November 2016. You can read more about Ciera in this blog post. All of the proceeds from pattern sales will be donated to Harmless, a charity, chosen by Ciera's family, who provide support to people who self-harm.
By purchasing this pattern, you will receive comfort from a cosy scarf of your own, but you are also helping Harmless to provide comfort and support to those who desperately need it.
We have raised £567 in Ciera's memory since February 28th 2017! Let's keep going.
About the Pattern
It is knitted in Blacker Yarn's gorgeous Tamar DK, which is a beautiful lustre yarn spun from the fleeces of fine British rare breeds. This yarn is very soft with excellent drape, making it perfect for a scarf. If you wish to substitute, make sure you choose a DK yarn with good stitch definition that can be blocked firmly.
The scarf is wide and long for maximum wrapping potential. The scarf can be made shorter by reducing the number of pattern repeats if you'd prefer.
