Soft and Green Snuzzle Scarf

The Earth Stripe Wrap (ESW) is coming along well. I’m into the third pattern repeat and, to be honest, its getting a bit boring now. Absolutely beautiful but I’m fed up with changing colours! 😕

I’d show you a picture but it’s just more of the same…

When I got home from Yarncrawl2 with this scrummy Misti Alpaca Chunky I was easily distracted from ESW.

I hinted I had a project in mind didn’t I? Well, This is how it goes…

I bought a new jacket in Next, in the sale. It’s super configurable (only an IT person would say “configurable”!) with removable linings and removable hood, removable furry hood trim, zippy bits, buttony bits, dangly bits and so many pockets I don’t think I’ve found them all yet. It’s also in a shade of green I adore. 🙂

Here it is…

All that is missing from this jacket is the perfect scarf….

I found the Misti Alpaca site and this free pattern for a one skein, Ribs and Ruffles Scarf.

It was done in one evening!

It’s soft, warm, snuzzley and a perfect match to the green of the jacket.

The pattern starts and ends with 60 stitches but you decrease rapidly (that’s how you get the ruffles) down to 15 for the body of the scarf – it’s skinny but intended to be worn doubled. The body of the scarf is a slip stitch rib – very easy and quick.

The ruffles…

What a colour match huh? Not bad as I wasn’t wearing the jacket when I bought the yarn!! 🙂

Now Susan! Get on with ESW! 😯

    Ooh that is totally gorgeous and a great match for the jacket.
    I think I’ve found a new yarn to obsess about.

    Wow, perfect colour match ! And a clean green seems a rare shade – if green is in the colour palette it’s usually something more murky or pastel. That’s a great colour and one of my faves too. Love the coat too 😀
