This 100% alpaca was like crocheting with butter! Amazingly smooth and faultless! I'll have to be sure and invest in really good alpaca from now on. I chose a basic feather and fan pattern for this scarf and worked it up in only a couple of weeks. It was a giant skein of 650 yards.

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.

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,... Continue Reading →
