rilke's alpaca scarf

January 2010
Worsted (9 wpi) ?
4.75 stitches = 1 inch
in garter stitch
US 8 - 5.0 mm
This pattern is available for free.

This scarf was “designed” per my daughter’s request for a modern, feminine, warm and practical scarf that she could wear around and about the city…it is a simple, simple pattern that even a rank beginner could do with some help. I used two very old skeins of Plymouth Indiecita Alpaca, 100 grams each. Any lovely worsted weight wool would work, but the alpaca makes a particularly lovely fabric with wonderful drape…I would highly recommend staying away from the cheap acrylic for this project!
Obviously, gauge is not terribly important, but make sure you have enough yarn (at least 200 grams) before you begin!

Finished size of the original: 76”x12”

If you have any questions, just ask! I’m always available to help…

Happy knitting!
