Oasis is an indispensable summer accessory. Overzealous air-conditioning and boardwalk breezes are no match for this ample scarf. Knit in Shibui's new cotton yarn, Fern, Oasis is a project you'll want knit right away and wear all summer long.
Fern is 100% organic cotton with a brushed matte finish that has lovely drape and a lightweight feel perfect for warm weather knits. People who normally shy away from cotton are letting us know how much they enjoy knitting with it!
Oasis is knit on the bias with contrasting stripes. Within each stripe are a series of nupps that add texture to this smooth, drapey fabric. Nupps are a little cluster of stitches that create a mini bobble.
If you've never knit nupps before, this a good opportunity to try something new. If nupps aren't your thing, keeping it simple with stripes is a good choice as well!
The Oasis Scarf pattern is free when you purchase Fern to make it!
We knit ours in Bone + Apple and we chose 3 other combos we think would would work beautifully. The skein on the left is the main color and the skein on the right is the stripe, but they are easily reversible.
Left: Ivory + Caffeine
Center: Ash + Blueprint
Right: Apple + Tar
Oasis takes 3 skeins of the main color and 1 of the contrast color. You'll also need a US6 needle. Happy Knitting!
