Kelbourne Woolens Scout is a classic, strong, versatile, heathered wool yarn from Kelbourne Woolens. Designed with classic knitting and crochet in mind, Scout is yarn for the sake of yarn. It is unfussy, beautiful, high-quality, and comes in a gorgeous color palette. This yarn yields amazing stitch definition both in color work and cables or textural knitting.
The sweater pattern that features Scout is called Powell. Designed by Meghan Kelly, Powell is knit from the bottom up in pieces and then seamed. Once completed, the shoulders are joined with a 3-Needle Bind-Off, and the sleeves and body are seamed. To make a nice edge for finishing, a single Stockinette stitch is worked at the selvedge. When working the sleeve increases and armhole shaping on both the body and sleeves, maintain the first and last stitch in Stockinette, then work the pattern in between the two edge stitches as established, working partial repeats as the shaping dictates. Additionally, the selvedge worked in Stockinette as described here is not charted. In order to ease working from the Body and Sleeve Charts, we recommend you highlight the beginning and ending lines for your size.
The cowl pattern featured for Scout is called Compass and can be found on Ravelry. Designed by Kate Gagnon Osborn, Compass is worked in the round from the bottom up. It begins with a long tail tubular cast on, and then a ribbing is worked. Increases are worked in the chart in accommodate the cable stitches, and once the body is complete, decreases are worked before the final ribbing. It is bound off using a tubular bind off. The cowl is written for two sizes. Pay attention to which size you are working when knitting from the charts and work the correct number of repeats of the of honeycomb pattern accordingly.
