Hello winter, bring it on! With this gorgeous and warm scarf in Frullesk, you are always ready to shine. It’s a classic in the making. The herringbone-like pattern is visible on both sides. Frullesk is a new knitting technique that has this special woven look.
The scarf is knitted flat. There are two versions: one with not so many stitches and a lot of rows (the red/green one from the photo’s), and the second version has a lot of stitches but not so many rows (the blue/purple one).
Version I (red/green):
The yarn used for Version I is from Hjelholt’s Uldspinderi, 1 tr. Farveskiftegarn. This yarn is warm, lustrous and has a long and subtle colour gradient. This gradient is clearly visible at the sides. The yarn is a mixture of Falkland Merino and Gotland wool.

• nr. 14 Rouge mix (170 g)
• nr. 15 Green mix (170 g.)
Where to get this yarn?: look on the website of Hjelholts Uldspinderi.
Version II (blue/purple):
The second version was knitted with Indiecita from Filcolana. This yarn is made of 100% Alpaca and therefore very soft and lovely warm, 4 different colours were used. One colour (yarn B) is used throughout the whole scarf. The short and subtle colour gradient of yarn B brings the scarf together as a whole. For yarn B it’s advisable to use a not so dominating colour but at the same time it has to complement the 3 other colours.

With the pattern comes an article ‘Introduction to Frullesk’ that contains a full description of 5 pages of the new technique Frullesk that helps you understand and practise with the required knitting method, how to read the charts, etc.
