This scarf was initially designed for the 2014 Miss Babs Armchair Traveling Knitting Tour, and will be exclusive for six months.

The scarf was designed for our trip to New Zealand

Debbi says: “The Silver Fern has become symbolic of the spirit of New Zealand and its people. Māori legend has it that hunters and warriors, using the underside of the fern leaves, could bend the delicate fronds just so and capture moonlight to guide themselves home. The people of New Zealand consider the Silver Fern to be a distinct representative of their country.
This scarf is long and flowing, knit in two separate pieces, from each end and then grafted together in the center, creating a graceful, scalloped edging. Wrap yourself in a bit of New Zealand culture and history!”
