This “barely there” scarf, in a luxurious blend of alpaca and silk weighs almost nothing, but adds a dash of style to any outfit and is gloriously soft and warm. Ideal for beginners and with no need to check tension, just remember to keep your chain stitches tight and regular. The shell trim adds weight and gives an elegant finish while the length and width are easily adjustable. Made as written you’ll be able to make two small scarves or one long scarf from one ball of yarn.
