This design is the feature pattern celebrating LYS Day 2022 at my LYS, The Little Yarn Shoppe in Saginaw Michigan. The pattern is designed by a local designer (me), for a local yarn shop (The Little Yarn Shoppe), with hand-dyed yarn from a local dyer (Blooms and Ewe). This oversized scarf is knit on the bias with a mix of colors and textures. It’s a surprisingly simple knit in an easy to wear style and size, perfect for the varied Michigan weather. Everything about it is pure Michigan, so it is fittingly called Pure Local.

Note: Finished measurements may vary depending
on how aggressively you block your wrap.
Approx 19” / 48cm x 85” / 215cm

Blooms And Ewe Yakino (70% SW Merino, 20% Yak,
10% Nylon; 218 yd / 199 m per 50g); 1 skein each color.

IMPORTANT: This pattern was a part of a yarn kit. It was designed to use all of the yarn from the kit. If you are substituting with a different yarn, pick a similar fingering weight yarn with 250 yds per
skein or more. The yardage requirement represents 15% padding to what this pattern actually used.
