Shibui Sample of the Month: Stoa.

March is here, and with it, a new Shibui Sample of the Month! We offer a 10% discount on Shibui yarn purchased for our featured sample until the end of the month.

This month’s sample is Anne Ginger’s “Stoa,” a flared ribbed scarf. The pattern is available for free when you buy Shibui Echo here at our shop.

“Stoa” is knit with Shibui Echo, a DK weight blend of 48% fine merino wool and 52% silk noil, where each ply is only one of those fibers. The two strands of silk noil stand out against the merino for a slightly marled look, just a bit of texture in the knit fabric.

Come by the shop to before March 26th to try on “Stoa” and get Shibui Echo at 10% off to make one of your own!

 

Just a reminder–all sales are final on discounted items; there can be no exchanges, returns, or special orders. Thanks!

    I’m making this scarf right now in Shibui Echo in the Tyrian colorway as a birthday gift for someone who is really into purple.
    The color was a “limited” color by Shibui and it is stunning! It’s almost electric! I did come up with another way to make the edges really sharp and tight which you need to get that corrugated look. The pattern method is good, but my method is keeping the edges tighter and straighter without the slightest roll which is what I personally wanted. Because of that technical detail, I’m not sure this project is the greatest for a raw beginner lacking in patience. But if you feel you’re up for a technical challenge, go for it. The pattern is definitely beautiful and well written and the yarn is a joy to work with … all the Shibui yarn is. The most important aspect of this pattern may be the blocking. Don’t skip that step. Wires are a necessity I think. I did speak with the designer when I started this project and she was so helpful and responsive.
