Springtime Bandit by Kate Gagnon

Springtime Bandit2

Last weekend, one of our costumers called Elizabeth (aka Isaac’s Mom), walked into the shop with a gorgeous triangular scarf. The sight of this scarf stopped me in my tracks and I could not take my eyes off of it.

Elizabeth wore it with casual elegance; a pair of jeans, black sleeveless top and over her shoulders ever so stylish was draped that gorgeous piece of handknitted beauty.

Isaac’s Mom, I mean Elizabeth, quickly informed me that she got the pattern  from Ravelry and that it was such a fast project! It is the Springtime Bandit by designer Kate Gagnon.

Gorgeous, elegant and fast..? Sounds like a project to me!

I want my Springtime Bandit…

I want my Springtime Bandit so bad it almost hurts. Elizabeth made hers with Alpaca with a twist, and I totally agree with her choice of yarn. Alpaca gives it just that drape, soft and silky-like feel. Excellent.

Today, I have been searching for the right yarn but haven’t bumped into it yet! 

Once I see it, I will recognize it. Everything has got to be just right: fiber, color, feel, weight of yarn… it has to be just right.
