I have a new design to share this weekend....the fifth in the Sullivan Family Collection, with one more coming later this week.  Here is....


My grandfather was born in Knocknagree, a small village located in the north-west of County Cork, Ireland, just a few miles up the road from the small town of Rathmore, County Kerry.  This infinity scarf was inspired by that rural and lush countryside.



Designed with Anzula For Better or Worsted, this infinity scarf knit up in a flash! The yarn is to die for. Serioulsy. It is my new favorite and the colors are so lovely! One skein of each color is all it needs. 



Notes: Instructions are written for an infinity scarf that is knit in the round. Both charted and written instructions are provided.  Notes on how to increase the size of the scarf are at the end of the pattern; however you will need additional yardage.

Finished measurements:  25” wide and 8 1/2” long

Suggested Yarns: ~335 yards total of worsted weight yarn or for 2-colors ~135 yards (A) and 200 yards (B) of worsted weight yarn such as Anzula For Better or Worsted, The Plucky Knitter Primo Worsted, Madelinetosh Tosh Vintage, Zen Yarn Garden Serenity Worsted

·         Size US 8 (5.0 mm) or size to obtain gauge, circular knitting needle
·         Tapestry needle
·         Blocking pins

Gauge:  18 sts and 24 rows= 4” over st st before blocking



A very special thank you to the amazing Jill Zielinski, aka Knitterella, for her graphic design work and modeling! Doesn't she look fabulous in these pictures?!  Thanks Jill!! She'll also be modeling my other design that you'll see later this week!

Rathmore is on  sale for $5.00 through March 13, 2013 

or it can be purchased as part of the Sullivan Family Collection for $18 for six designs.     

If the lace pattern looks familiar, it is the same pattern used on the edging of Knocknagree.  I loved it so much, I had to use it again!!  It is definitely a fun knit!

Happy Knitting!
