This warm, sparkly scarf is named after the clouds of vapor that develop over the ocean when the air is especially frigid. Like sea smoke, it will delight you on a cold winter day – both knitting it and wearing it! Pair with my Sea Smoke Hat to put a little glamour in your winter wardrobe! (Hat pattern sold separately.)

This pattern is appropriate for an intermediate level knitter. The scarf is made in two pieces, each beginning with a drop stitch lace section. The main body of the scarf is a simple k1, p1 rib. The two pieces are grafted together in the middle. Detailed directions and photographs for the grafting are included. The pattern consists of three pages and has been professionally tech edited, and also test knit, to be clear and free of errors.

Sizes: One size.
