My latest knitting project - Fabulous scarf using handspun yarn

My latest knitting project is now officially a FO (that's Finished Object for non-knitters, as opposed to a UFO = Un-Finished Object).

Awhile back I bought a beautiful skein of handspun wool and mohair yarn from my friend Carolyn at The Flying Ewe and it has been sitting in my stash waiting for the perfect project. The yarn has a beautiful fuzzy halo from the mohair and the wool makes it soft and squishy. Several days ago I was perusing patterns for neckwarmers and cowls and came across this scarf pattern that is very simple - three rows that are repeated for as long as you want the scarf to be, then attach fringe along one side and you're done! I enjoy these simple patterns because they keep my hands busy without taxing my mind too much while I work. And this one looks deceptively more difficult than it is! I think it almost looks like a vest from the front view and I love how the colors of the yarn gently undulate through the piece, giving it the illusion of a field of springs flowers - crocus and daffodils and jonquils. I think it would look stunning fastened in the front with a scarf pin but I couldn't find mine in time for the photo shoot. I guess maybe I need more scarf pins...




This beautiful knitted wool/mohair scarf is for sale in my Split Rock Ranch etsy store or if you'd like this scarf in a different color or yarn choice, just let me know because I can do a custom scarf just for you! Pricing of my knitted and crocheted items depends on several factors including yarns used, difficulty of pattern, etc.



Thank you for visiting Split Rock Ranch - have a great day!
