This kerchief is construct much like a shawl. It is worked flat from the top center outward. A sliver of contrasting color is worked just before the garter stitch edge. The same contrasting color is used to make petite polka dots all over the body of the work using duplicate stitch. Three finishing options are included in this pattern: seamed angles (to create zero additional ease), an I-cord “bridge” (to create 1” positive ease) and I-cords ties (to create flexibility in length).
I chose Spud & Chloe's Fine yarn particularly for its overall comfort when transformed into fabric. Fine is a sturdy and springy yarn. It is comfortable to wear, machine washable and is resistant to daily wear and tear, perfect for a kerchief worn while gardening.
Emma's kerchief was knit with the colors Sassafras and Calypso.
Mine was knit with Snorkel and Dolphin.
My original swatch featured Cricket and Tutu.
Which colors would you make your Radishes and Rosebuds in? I'd love to see your color combinations.
