Painted Calathea Kit
We now offer handy kits of this pattern. All kits include enough yarn to make this statement scarf along with the pattern, a limited edition button badge and a fab project bag to keep it all safe. Happy knitting!
Painted Calathea pattern is designed by our very own Sonja Bargielowska. Click here if you’d like to buy just the pattern, without the yarn.
Calathea uses Garter Stitch stripes along with the occasional slip stitch to create a fabric that looks wonderfully complex but is, in fact, a breeze to knit. The slip stitch pattern zigzags across the Reverse Garter fabric, whilst being invisible on the Garter Stitch side, making this scarf equally beautiful from all angles. Once the knitting is finished, you will finish your scarf with a playful fringed edge.
kit includes 1 -3 full skeins and 3 – 9 mini skeins in the colours of your choice. This is enough to make your chosen size.
