It's This Soft

Pattern: Wrap Yourself in Nature, from Inspired Cables, Fiona Ellis
Yarn: 3-ply Prime Alpaca, Musk
Size 6 needles
60" x 17"

Modifications to pattern: This is meant to be knit in two pieces and seamed together in a "V." I knit it straight, in one piece, to the same length as my favorite pashmina.

This Prime Alpaca is the SOFTEST yarn... and very warm. I enjoyed every minute of knitting this yarn and pattern. The cables were fun, and I LOVE the triangled edging.

PS - in the 2nd picture... that is NOT a hole. It may be where I joined yarns... but you don't see it in the actual scarf.

It's beautiful.. It looks good on you, and on Grandma's bedspread. Is there a sort of symbolism there?? ( my spleen!)
