I know I don’t have to tell you how happy I am that the annual July seepage of Fall patterns has begun. In a rare deluge, Swans Island published an incredible number of patterns this month, but there doesn’t seem to be any way to see them all collected together. Don’t worry, though — I’ve mined their complete archive in search of the latest additions and will be doling them out for some time! But what better way to ease into the season than to start working on a cable scarf? They’ve presented us with three options:
TOP: At the small end of the scale is the Woodlands Scarf by Talitha Kuomi, narrow and unisex, with symmetrical stacks of thin wishbone cables running up the center
MIDDLE: Clocking in at mid-scale wrap proportions is the Algonquin Wrap by Michele Rose Orne, with a mix of open diamonds and dense braids
BOTTOM: And then there’s the large-scale Fireside Wrap by Leah Coccari-Swift, with its big doughy cables
Thanks so much for reading this week, everyone, and for all the enthusiasm about the upcoming Fringe and Friends Knitalong! I know I’ll be spending a chunk of time this weekend starting to sort out what I want to knit, and I hope you will too! Whatever you’re up to this weekend, I hope it’s a good one …
And if you need anything from Fringe Supply Co., we’re here for you!

I’m excited. I have exactly this amount of the yarn left over from a sweater project. This yarn pills and I think the texture would cut down on that problem. It is an incredible soft and warm wool.
those look scrumptious!!! I wish there was a fringe association hotline I could submit my kal questions to bc there are a lot of things to consider and a second opinion would be helpful! lol
Oh god. You’re such a temptress. Now I want ALL the Swan’s Island yarn. ALL. OF. IT.
That Fireside Wrap is amazing!
I’m finding myself pulled Big Time to the Fireside Wrap. Just gorgeous!
