This short buttoned scarf is named for the town of Carlton in Oregon. Like Carlton’s main street this scarf is short, but also pretty. The cables remind me of the delicious French macaroons at the little bakery there, while the color is reminiscent of grapes and the many little wine shops in Carlton.When I look at this scarf, I can’t help but think of Carlton and how much I enjoy my visits there.

I enjoy my visits so much, I often take my friends and family there when they come to see me. Now I will have to knit my visitors a Carlton scarf as a souvenir!
