Tinus is stylish, functional, and downright handsome. It’s knit in four colours which are distributed asymmetrically – the perfect playground to showcase your favourite hues. Narrow stripes add subtle texture, while a slightly off-center dip stitch pattern creates interest. Best of all, the lofty lace-weight cashmere means Tinus weighs in at a feathery 100 g, yet is perfectly warm.
Pacuali Cashmere Lace is divinely soft, making this scarf a special gift for the man in your life (or a treat for yourself). If substituting yarn, choose natural fibres that respond well to blocking, and knit at a looser gauge than recommended in order to curb stockinette stitch’s tendency to curl.
The pattern contains a photo tutorial for the dip stitch and tips on customizing the shawl length and width.

Knitting for me is all about experimenting, trying new things, rediscovering old stuff and mixing everything together to create something completely new and unique. You never run out of ideas or possiblities once you have started thinking about yarn and needles like that.
I also like a challenge when I knit. I enjoy immensely to have an idea and to think: Yes, this would be nice but it´s impossible to do. - Then I find a way to do it.
It is just amazing to me that I can write down my ideas at home, upload them here on Makerist and so instantly share them with other knitters all around the world.
