Brayne is a scarf-shawl cross with a knit-on lace edge and gently pointed ends. An elegant variation to the traditional scarf, wear it long, looped, pulled through, or tucked up as a cowl. A beautiful design to show of your brooches and shawl pins! An easy stockinette knit, with a bit of lace on every row to keep it interesting. Lightweight and squishy in a fantastic sport weight merino by Dye for Wool - their colors are wonderful! Easily substitute a skein of sock yarn.

This yarn is so soft to work with and has some stretch to it. I’ve never knit with a fingerling weight before and I’m enjoying this one - decided on the Brayne scarf for this one - a soft stockinette pattern with a lacy edge. Can’t wait to see it blocked. The color is a beautiful classic that leads a tiny bit toward jade in some lights, I’d say.
