Alpaca & Wool Scarf

Well, I did it! I finally finished my boyfriend’s scarf 3 weeks ago, just in time for him to wear it for the last few weeks of winter.  Thank goodness, because today we have thundershowers – very uncharacteristic March weather for Montreal, Canada.  We are normally still up to our necks – well, up to our knees – in snow, but we have had a steady stream of warm rainy weather over the past couple weeks, so there is very little snow left anywhere.

Anyway, back to the scarf.  This is my first completed knitting project.  Woohoo!  It’s a really nice feeling.  As I’ve mentioned in other posts, I’ve started and stopped lots of projects over the years, so it feels really good to finally get one under the belt.

More importantly, my boyfriend has been wearing the scarf, and he loves it.  At 7 ft, it is longer than he is tall.  I guess he was the right incentive.  Now for the matching hat…

I used Berroco Ultra Alpaca Chunky yarn in sandy brown, and I followed the Christian’s Scarf pattern by Agnes Kutas Knitwear Design which is available as a free download on Ravelry.

      Thank you! 🙂 That’s the perfect description of this yarn: warm & squishy. I really wanted a yarn that was warm, but would feel soft against his neck, and this turned out to be just the thing 🙂
