Staff Creations: Allison’s L.1 Scarf

With the dreamy drape and wonderful softness of linen, how could we limit ourselves to just one color?  Allison worked up this scarf blending cool neutral colors with a pop of green.

L.1 takes 6 skeins of Shibui Linen to make — 2 skeins for color A , 2 skeins for color B , and one skein each of C and D.  The range of color options ensures that you can build your perfect project.  Made of 100% linen, this scarf is lightweight enough that you can wear it even in warmer months.

Captivated by the incredible softness of Sylph — a 58% cashmere 42% linen blend — Allison combined two easy-to-wear neutrals to make a scarf that goes well with any ensemble.  Using one skein each of two colors, the Ellen Scarf can be made in so many color combinations that even the most finicky of palettes can build themselves the perfect scarf.  Browse the Sylph colors and pick up a copy of the Ellen Scarf for your next project!
