FO Friday | Herring.

I’ve been admiring Versaciknits’ latest Herring design since it debuted back in March. She suggested a worsted weight wool for the pattern, but then she shared linen and cotton versions on Instagram and I was obsessed. I settled on linen, specifically Quince & Co’s sport-weight Sparrow and bought the yarn the day I finished Traveling Gray.

It was a fun quick knit – especially once I figured out the rhythm of the increases and the lace. 
I ended up knitting the pattern exactly as written (except I went down one needle size), then blocked the heck out of it – soaked for three hours, then wires and pins…and a little fan action to dry it so I could wear it that same day!
The linen softened up nicely and the drape is lovely.
This scarf is going to get a lot of wear this summer.
… and yep, you guessed it – I’m definitely thinking about a winter version!
Happy Friday, y’all!

  1. Gorgeous — you wear it so well! It seems like you just started this a few days ago and here it is on FO Friday. I love the fan (and what looks like a shot glass? Whatever helps with blocking!) and flowers. Wishing you a wonderful weekend!

  2. That is a perfect summer scarf and the color will go with everything. The drape is lovely and so is your smile! You should definitely make one in wool for winter!
