Free Acrobats!

Time flies. I get reminded of this often, especially when I get around to posting stuff on here and then look to when I first mentioned the idea and see how long ago it was. Blog posting dates don't lie!

Acrobatic scarf blockedAnyway, a while back, I finished a crochet scarf to show off the Malabrigo Silky Merino for the shop. I call it the Acrobatic Scarf since it's really just a couple of repeats of the acrobat stitch from a Harmony Guides stitch dictionary.

If you like it and want to make one, the pattern is available free right here. Enjoy!

Specs:

Yarn: Malabrigo Silky Merino, 2 skeins, 300 yards total

Hook: US size I

Size: Approximately 5"x52" unblocked; 7"x70" blocked

Gauge: Not really important, but mine was 5dc = 1" unblocked

Here's a close-up of the stitch. It really does look like acrobats tumbling, don't you think?
