Eco Duo Scarf
We've all been fondling the soft and fluffy Eco Duo alpaca yarn from Cascade and were happy to see that Mary had made herself a scarf using it!
One Row Handspun Scarf by Stephanie Pearl-McPhee aka the Yarn Harlot. It's a free pattern on her blog and we love it! Mary used only 1 skein of Eco Duo in color Storm #1703 and the scarf turned out long enough to wrap around once.
Cascade Yarns Eco Duo is an aran weight, undyed blend of 70% alpaca, 30% merino.
There are 197 yds/100 gr in a skein with 4.5 sts per inch on a US 8 knitting needle for $12.25 per skein.
The natural undyed colors are beautiful and the yarn is as soft as it comes.
The undyed colors are so rich.
Here you can see how the yarn slowly fades into different shades.
