Bear Track Stitch Revisited

CaramelLaceThe bear track stitch meets a lace-weight alpaca in this airy scarf.  Despite it’s name, this stitch pattern is feminine, lacy and reversible.  Perfect for a scarf!  While the standard reversible stitches are nice, like basket weave and garter stitch, this stitch pattern is quickly becoming my go-to for scarves.

The stitch can be found here.  And, you can see how it worked out in a bulky yarn in my Lofty Scarf and Stole.

Now that my beautiful locally-sourced alpaca has become a scarf, it’s time to move on to my Knit Picks City Tweed yarn that arrived last week.  8 (100 gram) balls should be enough to do a large swatch and knit up a full-sized cabled sweater.

The question becomes – what type of construction?  Top-down or pieced?  Set-in sleeve, raglan, or drop shoulder?  Cardigan or pullover?  I’m excited to get started.  Hopefully, the swatch will tell me what kind of sweater this yarn wants to be.

  1. I’ve been seriously thinking about the Knitpicks Tweed, too. I love tweeds, but they’re always so scratchy. This one looks delicious and soft though.
