Gentle Hearts MAL

​Here we have the second free pattern for our MAL, the Gentle Hearts scarf.  There will be two patterns incuded in the MAL, one for crochet and the other for knit.  The first I've already shared with you is the crochet Popcorn at the Movies shawl, which you can see here.

​This scarf if a great single skein make with only a touch of contrast colour for the two double knitting ends.

This is a ​knitting pattern in three parts written​ with both text and chart instructions.

There are several video tutorials to support beginners and I'm happy to answer any questions in the yarnpeople facebook group.

The patterns will be released for free through the website, no logins will be required to acess the parts, however a complete PDF will be available ​free to newsletter members on publishing the final part of the pattern.

Note:  Links in the 'What you will need' box below ​may be affiliate links, no cost to you if used and I do really appreciate the support those extra pennies provide.

​Pattern Notes

​The ​scarf is worked from ​end to end with a lace section between two double knit sections.

When selecting colours, if you wish to use the same colours as our sample the yarn is Seaglass from The Project Bag, see link above.

​The lace section will require blockingt o revel its true beauty, although the double knit sections will not require blocking due to the nature of their construction.
