Andes Scarf

We love revisiting yarns around the store and coming up with new ways to use them. Andes has always been a staff favorite because of how soft and silky it is and the jewel toned colors are just perfect. My mom played around with it in my favorite mustard yellow and came up with this beautiful scarf that really shows off the yarn.

A simple garter stitch scarf knit from end to end using two skeins of Andes shown in the color Mustard. It's one of the softest scarves I've ever felt, everyone should have one around their neck!

This is a free pattern available with yarn purchase.

The Yarn:

Andes by Debbie Bliss is a blend of 65% baby alpaca/ 35% mulberry silk. It's a single ply dk weight yarn with 110 yards per 50 gram skein. Here are the colors:

Fuschia, Red and Dusty Pink

Denim, Eggplant and Mauve

Salmon, Moss Green and Mustard

Light Sweet Pea and Aqua

Black, Tan and Off White

That's a wonderfully composed photo. I like the stripes of the shirt with the stripes of the scarf, and the blue background complimenting the yellowish scarf.
Very nice!
