Green and brown alpaca scarf

I’m pretty sure this is alpaca yarn but I’ve been working on this scarf for so long I forget exactly what kind of yarn it is. It’s a lace weight yarn and I used a 4 mm bamboo hook to crochet a basic shell stitch. It’s incredibly soft and I think it turned out really nice.

Green alpaca wrap

Here is a traditional wave/ripple stitch using Classic Alpaca yarn in green. I remember getting this yarn at Island Knits last year while I was on Pawley’s Island, SC.  I certainly recommend visiting their shop while you’re at the beach.  They have lots of great yarn and friendly staff 🙂

Blue and green striped scarf

Finished this scarf in a weekend! I decided to be really creative with my sale yarn I found at The Needler in Lexington. It was my first visit there and I will certainly go back. I’ll certainly use this kind of striping technique again 🙂

LoDo Scarf

I found this great pattern from the yarn shop in Summerville, SC – The Village Knittery (which is a great shop by the way).  The person working there found this scarf pattern on Ravelry and printed it out for me.  I used two skeins of Berroco Ultra Alpaca and modified the pattern slightly so it wouldn’t be as wide.  I will definitely use this pattern again!

Gray men’s scarf

I used Debbie Bliss Glen yarn for this very simple scarf. I used a half double crochet through the back loop stitch and a size H needle. This made for a tight stitch which will make for a very warm scarf! The yarn is wool, alpaca, and acrylic.

Scarf Project for Me!

I got a wonderful gift recently! My common-law sister-in-law sent me 4 skeins of this beautiful black yarn and told me to make myself something, so I’ve started it! The yarn is wonderful to work with and is making a beautiful scarf. It’s called Mirasol Akapana and it is 65% Baby Llama, 25% Merino Wool, and 10% Donegal. I had to look up donegal and it appears to be a kind of tweed yarn. I also looked up the web site to find out more about the Mirasol project which supports Peruvian schools.

Here is a look at the knitting board I’m using for this scarf:

Here is the scarf at its current stage which is from one skein. I’m using a rib stitch:
