Description

Julie Hoover's Kimmswick puts a modern twist on one of knitting’s most traditional and well-loved styles: the Shetland tube scarf! Worked circularly throughout at a relaxed gauge, the double-layer of stranded fabric creates a lusciously soft and pliable garment. Updated to include the bold 45-color palette of Peerie, Kimmswick also features options for Loft, with photographs of the original design. Brooklyn Tweed considers Kimmswick a level 3 out of 5 in difficulty and offers the pattern as a hard copy only, printed on quality cardstock with full-color images and detailed charts.
