More kits have just launched this Friday, January 20th!

We adore this new design from Florence Spurling!

We love this so much, we have made kits, and have scheduled two new workshops with Florence at Loop available on either Saturday, April 1st or Saturday, May 13th.  

A little sister to her incredibly popular 'Scout' design, this can be worn as a kerchief at your neck, on your head, or as a petite triangular shawl. 


A sister design to the original Scout shawl, this slightly modified neckerchief shape shares the same intricate, pattern-filled look inspired by the pieced-together aesthetic of vintage quilts. A dream project for colourwork lovers, Scout’s patchwork effect is achieved by mixing Fair Isle and intarsia knitting throughout.
For this version, I imagined diving into a trove of patterned fabrics that had been collected via travel-filled adventures. The collection is collaged together in a freeform manner, mixing memories into a patchwork composition.
Knitted sideways from tip-to-tip, this petite triangular shawl can be styled in numerous ways.

We have made kits in Florence's original colours as well as a Loop palette. Both are so beautiful, and what a fun knitting project!

Our kits come with all of the yarn you need, wound into yarn bundles and in Unicorn Tales, saving you from buying 5 whole skeins of yarn. As a gift, we give you our wonderful new Dove drawstring project bag. The perfect size for while you are knitting it!

We're very proud to have kits in both Florence's original colours, and a palette we created that is reminiscent of a scout kerchief, an old vintage American quilt made of seed packet cloth, and Summer Camp pioneers. With a little Wes Anderson vibe thrown in there too. We adore both colour palettes and are excited to gift to you our newest cotton bag - a drawstring bag in each kit with a peace dove on it. Perfect!

The pattern is available as a PDF through Ravelry and Florence Spurling Studio from Monday, December 19th.

Florence is offering a 15% discount on the pattern using the code SCOUTMINI valid from the 19th of December through midnight the 21st of December UK time!
