We added Madelinetosh yarns to our store earlier this year and we finally can reveal our first project using the luxurious Pashmina line along with Sandes Garn Alpakka Silke.
You might recognize Pashmina from our Stash Dash sale in August, so if you grabbed a skein then and still don’t know what to do with it, you’re in luck! This project is super simple, but ends with a stunning (and soft) scarf perfect for those chillier days ahead of us.

Because Madelinetosh Pashmina is a variegated yarn, you will need to wind it onto your bobbin in a specific way. We have a video on how to do this here:
We left about 5” of warp unwoven on both ends to create fringe. Our fringe was made by twisting bundles of 2 working ends together in each clip of our fringe twister, then letting them twist together to create twisted bundles of 4 total working ends. If you’ve never used a tool to twist fringe, check out this helpful video:
We’ve put together a few colorway suggestions for some of the other Pashmina colors….
