Alpine Nights Scarf
Have you caught onto the Super Scarf craze yet? I love the way those big chunky oversized scarves look, but sometimes I feel they can be a bit overwhelming on some people. This pretty scarf is designed in two sizes, a 9″ x 85″ for those that want to dip their toe into the Super Scarf category without a full commitment and a more traditional 6″ x 60″.
Have fun with this one, it’s easy and works up quickly. The waffle stitch makes it thick and luxurious around the neck and it’s super “yarn versatile” too! I’ve made it in the Caron Cakes yarn that everyone is talking about as well as Rowan Hemp Tweed and Red Heart Soft, all with equally good results, so it just depends on the look you are going for. These make great holiday gifts too!

I love the easy striping created by the self striping yarn, it really broke at just the right places!
And for the gents, the quiet elegance of a solid color.
