Ever since Jill released Rifton last January I KNEW I had to make another version of Magmatic Scarf in it. I got a skein from her right away, but since she sold out so quickly I decided to wait until she had more to release the pattern to the public. I know this frustrated some of you who have been waiting for it for over a year... sorry?
Magmatic Scarf was originally the last mystery knit-along of 2014's M Club.... it was made with 3 mini skeins and 1 set of Space Cadet Mini's. Members got "parts" of the design, including beads, throughout the year's shipments and then they put them all together into a magic ball and started knitting. (You can read about more about it here.)
Magmatic is worked in an elongated chevron stitch in the round, and then steeked to turn it into a scarf. Fringe is then "self-made" by unraveling stitches at each end of the scarf. Knitting Magmatic is a blast... cutting it is awesome, and fringing it is just plain fun! Of course, the pattern includes videos for these last steps, don't worry! I love the original version that I made with beads, but check it out in Rifton..... (yes, that is my girl, I can't even...!)

Rifton is made in super small batches... Jill will have this "round" for sale at her Studio Open House this Saturday at Rhinebeck AND AT THE SAME TIME be posting it for sale in her Etsy shop. (A little bird told me it would be up around 4pm.)
