Since family members where coming and going a lot over the holiday season, we ended up having a very early Christmas, which meant I had to snap to it when it came to any gifts I wanted to make. For those family members who do not live in Florida, one item I opted to make a fair number of were scarves. Pictured is one I made using some baby alpaca Knit Picks yarn that I overdosed on during a sale awhile back, so I ended up doing a little de-stashing while also gift-giving.
I made a few of these, and they are really soft. Plus the color of yarn and type of pattern are fairly unisex (or at least I think so). This pattern is now one of my favorites because it is so fast to make. It’s called Moonlight Serenade by Merri Purdy, and it is available as a free download on Ravelry.com. Most of the pattern I did follow except for I made it longer (starting with 161 versus 121 chain stitches), and I did not connect the ends together, so it’s a true scarf instead of a cowl type scarf that you wrap around.
Now that just about all my gifting is finished, I may actually have time to make something for myself. Imagine that!
