Limestone Scarf in Powder River DK
Relax and enjoy the simple pleasures of making the ingenious Limestone scarf. Knit horizontally, with German short rows providing the shaping, the rhythm of the knitting becomes natural and hypnotic. A narrower neck makes for for comfortable wearing.
Limestone makes a perfect gift and you can knit it up in no time.
Everything you need to know to make Limestone scarf is in the pattern — including Action charts for the short rows!
Mitered square “leaves” grow naturally from the horizontal purl ribs and are great portable projects that are satisfyingly quick to knit. The central eyelet motif of the miters and the delicate movement of your leaves highlights the natural beauty of the squishy Powder River yarn.

The pattern includes both written instructions and Action charts; there is a Road Map as well to help you see the shaping.
The pattern is a total of 10 pages.

Yarn Used in Limestone Scarf
Powder River DK from Mountain Meadow Wool, 60% Mountain Merino, 30% American alpaca, 10% black Rambouillet, 100g or 3.5 oz/255 yds (233 m).
Model in Natural used approximately 100g/255 yds (233 m).
I design with yarns I love. Mountain Meadow Wool is a company I’ve know nearly since the beginning of their adventure in hand knitting yarns. This yarn uses carefully sorted alpaca from American Alpaca growers that is a nice mocha color, along with a merino specially blended with black Ramouillet to achieve the subtle gray. Twisted together this yarn has luster and depth that can’t be beat, whether used in the natural color blend, or one of the four over-dyed colors. Powder River DK is special to me because I “discovered” it in a pile of mistake yarn. My hand reached to it, and my enthusiasm set off the Powder River Collection.
