Stepping into yarn stores is dangerous. When we were visiting Wollen Berlin some time ago with my fellow crocheters and Molla Mills, I got the urge to make a blue scarf. Something long, airy but still warm. I couldn’t find a nice pattern, until I bumped into the Alpaca Your Wrap pattern by Tamara Kelly in the Moogly blog. The pattern was even free! The scarf looked airy, not too lacy, easy to make and so I got myself some blue woolen yarn and started working.
I chose the wonderfully soft Semilla BC yarn, 100% organic wool. I worked with a hook size 3 (smaller than recommended). The scarf ended up being approximately 210 cm long and weighing some 240 grams. With the leftover yarn I made a matching headband: a simple crochet tube, with a few stitches in front to create the draping effect.
In the meantime: Last week I went to a morning party to start my day with three hours of dancing. If you haven’t yet heard of Morning Gloryville, now is the time!
