Knitting Pattern for Shades of Grey Scarf

Shades of Grey
I love to work with various colors. Mostly I use bright and cheerful colors when designing toys. Then, every once in a  while I think about the shades of grey, black and whites.
This scarf was inspired by my design of Cable Pillow with Heart in the e-book Knit Season. I love the intertwined cable and wanted to play with it a bit more. I wanted to add a bit of color and by using I-cord edge the scarf has nice and elegant edge.

You may purchase the pattern in my Ravelry store, by clicking on this button:

This Infinity Scarf is one of 26 knitting patterns in the book Spring Accessories Collection edited by Knitpicks and published in February 2015.

To have my design accepted is wonderful experience. Even though the process from the submission to the finished pattern took months,  it is such a privilege that I am very proud of.
Yet, when I received my copy of the book, I was even more surprised to see my pattern as the cover image.

e-book The Knit Season


The Book Project started in Spring 2013 when I attended class named "The Book" . We were to create a book as our long term assignment for this particular class. Somehow I managed to convince my professor to let me work on a book of knitting patterns rather than a book of fiction as everyone else in the class, and when the class ended I had over 100 pages f written material and many more ideas. I thought it would be waste of my time and work not to do anything with the material, and I  submitted the book proposal to several publishing houses. One of the publisher suggested to send the proposal to a yarn company, and I did. The Cascade Yarn Company saw potential in my submitted book proposal and offered to provide yarn support.
In March 2014 I have received this enormous box filled with wonderful yarn from Cascade Yarn Company.

The Book Project
I had to start all over again, and rewrite and reknit everything, using the yarn from this box. It was a long and interesting journey. In September 2014 I have posted about "The Book Project"  in my group on Ravelry and several people offered to help by being the test knitters.
Test knitter receive the pattern and follows the instructions expecting that the finished object will resemble the original sample in size, and appearance. In return for their work, they have an early access to new patterns, and receive the final pattern as well. In this case they have received the complete e-book filled with 31 knitting patterns.

The Knit Season
The Knit Season is filled with 31 knitting patterns divided into 5 sections inspired by seasons and the colors I have associated with that particular season.
You may purchase the entire e-book by clicking on this button or in my Ravelry store.
