Tulipland

Tulipland. A lovely, light, and bright scarf perfect for spring and summer. Knit horizontally.It’s warming up around here! Which basically means it’s time for cocktails with lots of mint and lime, dipping my toes into the pool, and attacking the weeds in the garden with a fiery yet unseen.

And…it means it’s time to knit a summer scarf!

Enter Tulipland.

(Drum roll please.)Tulipland. A lovely, light, and bright scarf perfect for spring and summer. Knit horizontally.Tulipland is my most recent creation. Fairly simple on the outset. It’s a fingering weight knit. Perfect for cooler parts of the day before the day gets too hot.

The interesting part about Tulipland is that it is knit horizontally and available in three separate lengths. After knitting a scarf horizontally, I have decided it to be a much preferred method than the traditional way. There is less twisting and untwisting as you flip rows back and forth ALL THE TIME. Seriously, I have henceforth decided that all scarves should be knit in the horizontal plane. So much easier.

Truly. Tulipland. A lovely, light, and bright scarf perfect for spring and summer. Knit horizontally.The shortest length is perfect to wear as a light and simple shawl, draped over the shoulders. The longest length (pictured here) is ample, with plenty of room to wrap and snuggle on the coolest of dewy mornings. And medium….well, medium is somewhere in the middle…plenty long enough to wear as a traditional scarf. Tulipland. A lovely, light, and bright scarf perfect for spring and summer. Knit horizontally.The pattern itself is a simple botanical motif combined with some ribbing. Elegant in its simplicity. All purpose for any knitter, even the beginner variety.

YOU CAN TOTALLY DO THIS! Tulipland. A lovely, light, and bright scarf perfect for spring and summer. Knit horizontally.If you have stumbled upon this post, wondering what you might do today…I have your answer. Find the closest fingering weight yarn (I used Swans Island Natural Colors in Rose Quartz) and cast on. You won’t regret it. Tulipland. A lovely, light, and bright scarf perfect for spring and summer. Knit horizontally.Tulipland is available on Ravelry for $5.00 USD. The pattern includes written instructions and looks pretty swanky, if you ask me. (Yes, I am biased.)

I know there are five zillion and two patterns on Ravelry these days to choose from, so I will be just TICKLED PINK if you decide to knit this one.

Seriously. I would be honored. Tulipland. A lovely, light, and bright scarf perfect for spring and summer. Knit horizontally.Often when I knit, I am struck with inspiration for subsequent designs. This is dreadfully ironic, catastrophically clashing that itch for a new project with the determination to finish the current effort. My fingers just couldn’t go fast enough to finish this project…fueled by visions of Daisyland, Sunflowerland, Orchidland…basically all kinds of floral places.

Or maybe it was just all the crazy weeding I have been doing. Who knows.

(Or, the mint, lime, and other secret ingredients.)Tulipland. A lovely, light, and bright scarf perfect for spring and summer. Knit horizontally.Regardless, please, please, please add this baby to your queue for sunny knitting. It will brighten most any day. How can it not…It is pink after all.

And I do love pink. Tulipland. A lovely, light, and bright scarf perfect for spring and summer. Knit horizontally.Okay knitters, scurry along. Off to Ravelry you go.

I will see  you there!

    […] used Swans Island before (when I knit up Tulipland), and I’m a big fan. You get a lot of yarn in a skein at a fair price. It’s soft, and […]
