The designs on this scarf and nachaq hood are inspired by the paintings of skeletons on many Yup’ik wooden utensils and boxes. The scarf is knitted back and forth with a slip- stitch selvedge; the nachaq is knitted in the round. If you want to compare working the same pattern both ways, these are excellent practice projects. The scarf, made with just one 50g ball of luxury yarn, would make an extravagant gift. The nachaq may be the perfect project to pamper yourself. (Or vice versa.)

Uses same stitch pattern as the Skeleton Scarf.
