This scarf reminds me of the landscape of the Arctic tundra, the native home of the musk ox. The color of the yarn and the floral motif make me think of young musk oxen frolicking in the spring, carefree in the warm months while they are growing their own layer of qiviut to protect themselves in the coming winter. Made from 100% qiviut yarn, the scarf is knit in two pieces. Each piece is worked from the end toward center, and the two ends are joined with Kitchener stitch.
