When I bought the alpaca for the Purple Tablet Cover, I couldn’t resist some other alpaca yarn that was on sale. I found this hot pink yarn that I thought would make a great scarf. I just set up a Ravelry Designer Store, and I want to have at least one pattern in my store that’s for free. I thought this would do the trick.
So, I looked though a pattern book and found this pattern called “Dragon Scale.” The name implies something ugly, but I thought the pattern was great. Scarves with lace are pretty, but when I wear a scarf, I want something to keep me warm! Alpaca is MUCH warmer and more light-weight than wool (and a lot softer), so I figured this would be both beautiful and functional.
Here’s the free pattern so you can knit one for yourself. (It would make a great present, too!)
