This lovely design, the knit-round scarf, by Sally Melville in her Knit Book has become a classic in the Skein Lane knitting community. Sally says in her book that the design was inspired  by a yoke collar that she admired.

I have three of these wonderful knit-round scarves which was affectionately named “The Donut” by the wonderful Sandy Lee who use to work and knit at the Skein Lane retail shop. Recently, several more of the round scarf-shawls have been created. Helen has knit several and

Trish, a newbie knitter,  has just finished her first one.

Marsha - her Round Shawl knit in Kathmandu and MaggiKnits Mohair Loop

Marsha is knitting yet one more as is Diane….she is also using Queensland Collection Kathmandu with a ribbon yarn and beads. Photos coming soon.

I am sure there are more of you out there being creative with yarn choices for this wonderfully simple yet elegant design.

While my three are winter shawls…I do see one in the future that is knit with MaggiKnits linen….which would be a wonderful wear for this Bay Area summer climate. 

This quick and simple design requires about 350 yards of worsted weight yarn. It is all knit…knit in the round thus creating circular stockinette or reverse stockinette…whichever look you prefer.

Knit in a Noro discontinued yarn - one of my favorites to wear!
