Rowan Purelife Revive

The Age of Brass and Steam Kerchief by Orange Flower

A unisex triangular scarf/kerchief knitted in DK weight yarn.

The shawl is approx. 53 inches in width and 15” from center back to center point, when blocked aggressively. A single skein of DK weight yarn will yield a kerchief size.

This free pattern could easily be made with fingering to worsted weight yarn. By simply adding more repeats of the stockinette and garter ribbed eyelet sections, you can make a kerchief or shawl as large as you wish. Note that yardage requirements will vary with different yarn weights.

Yarns By Design has selected to knit this project with Purelife Revive by Rowan. Purelife revive has a wonderful tweed effect, fully recycled summer yarn made from used garments which have been selected according to the silk, cotton and viscose content. It has a beautiful rusticity. The recycled fibers are then carded to make regenerated fibre, which is spun into this beautiful, high quality yarn. This process gives life to new hand knitting designs.
