The Dalia Scarf
Out of all our recent arrivals here in the shop, nothing embodies "springtime" quite like Hanako! This 50% cotton and 50% linen blend is strong and breathable. Each skein is dyed in bright, happy, lightly tinted solid colors.
The Dalia pattern is available to download on its own for $6... But if you purchase the yarn to make it, we'll give you the pattern for free!
It uses just 2 skeins of Hanako, which are $15 each... So this super cute and quick project will keep your budget around $30.
To get the pattern for free, simply add the yarn to your cart. When the pop-up window asks if you'd also like to add a pattern, select the free Dalia pattern. Once checkout is complete, you'll be given a link to download the PDF. If you want a printed copy of the pattern, mention so in the "special instructions" box just before clicking "checkout"!
If you can't tell by the photos... This pattern is totally easy-peasy. It's mostly stockinette stitch, with a few eyelet rows on each end for connecting the tassels. The only "challenge" for beginning-level knitters may be the kitchener stitch or 3-needle bind off... which is how you connect the two identical scarf halves together. The Kitchener is good to learn for future projects, but if that's way too intimidating for you right now, check out the 3-needle bind off. It's very doable and not hard to understand! You bind off and graft the two pieces together in one easy step.
The tassels are a fun textured detail to add on once you finish knitting and blocking the scarf. I love how the multiple tiers makes it look like a cascading waterfall! I think it works really well with the skinny width, rolled edges, and long length.
Our sample Dalia in the photos used the Hanako color "Silvery Moon". I love how the neutral color makes it so versatile and easy to wear with anything... But I can't help it! I love love love the color Sunflower. The colors Coral and Bay are close favorites, too. What do you think?
