You remember how shortly before Christmas I received two beautiful hanks of yarn from Flagstaff Alpacas?
As Flagstaff Alpacas is owned by a man who does not knit, I decided that Andy (its owner) needed a keyhole scarf in mock brioche stitch.
Keyhole (in case you’re not familiar with the term) means that there’s a slit in the middle of the scarf, so you can thread one end through (as shown above). This means the scarf won’t fall open or off your shoulders when you are wearing it.
Unfortunately, I have no modelled photos of this scarf as the large boy in the household refused to be cooperative, and I didn’t really think it appropriate to model this one myself before I packed it up and posted it off. I hope Andy liked it.
My daughter saw the cuddly yarn and rather liked it. She also saw the photos of the scarf and rather liked the look of it. I decided to knit something for her using the white/white/black marled alpaca/merino blend yarn.
This hank arrived in my order of yarn from Flagstaff Alpacas.
Both scarf and cowl only need one hank of yarn each, and I’ll be putting the pattern together for them soon.
Now I need to knit one for me!
