504 King West
A pattern designed for your commute! Named after the Toronto streetcar route that rumbles by The Knit Café on Roncesvalles Ave, this pattern was originally inspired by the TTC Knitalong, an annual event where dedicated participants brave Toronto's public transit system for an all day knitathon. Amazing!
This asymmetrical neck wrapper is a restful knit meant for sleepy, distracted knitters who like to knit to the rhythm of the metro or the streetcar.This garter stitch scarf is shaped with increases and decreases to form a dynamic, obtuse triangular shape. Made with a long circular needle you won’t have to worry about poking the passenger beside you or losing a needle, just throw this project in your bag and climb aboard.
Koigu KPM is the perfect yarn for this project. A 50 gram skein is just the right length for half the scarf, two well matched colours will make the whole. A trio of Koigu skeinettes serve as accent colours that run the length of the scarf and balance the two halves. Light weight, and comfortable against the skin, this merino wool has well dispersed and subtle colour variation in each hand dyed skein.
Your Knit Kit comes with: The Knit Cafe's 504 King West pattern, two 50 gram skeins of Koigu KPM and three Koigu skeinettes in colour compositions chosen by us for you and named after stops on the 504's route along Roncesvalles Avenue. Choose from:
Marion, featuring yellow #2335, and light jade #2354 with accents grey #2403, peach #1112, and orange #1113
Level: Knitters must know how to knit and purl, increase with "knit front and back", and "yarn over", decrease with "knit two together", and pick up stitches for this project.
