Scout Mini Kit

Availability: Translation missing: en.general.icons.icon_check_circle icon 11 in stock

We adore this new design from Florence Spurling!

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 one of our Loop cotton bags.

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. 

The pattern is available as a PDF through Ravelry and Florence Spurling Studio
