|Thanks Amy for modelling!|
I call it Barracuda, a wee homage to the Wilson sisters, Ann and Nancy, aka Heart. I don't "heart" heart, I love them. Powerful, sexy, dramatic, talented rock and rollers. I mean, look at them!
I know they've rocked their fair share of loooonnnng scarves in their day, so the name seemed appropriate.
When Barracuda was finished, I decided I had to have something similar for myself, and while it was a fast knit, I couldn't stomach the idea of working that 2 row stitch pattern again so soon, so I went in search of scarves with similar vibage, and came up with this:
Pattern: Chunky Alpaca Scarf by Jane Richmond
Yarn: Malabrigo Chunky
Needles: US 9/5.5mm
Started: November 28
Finished: December 2
Your basic feather and fan stitch pattern got me what I wanted: a cozy scarf that would fold and scrunch nicely around my neck while looking a bit more feminine than garter stitch. This took exactly four skein of Malabrigo Chunky (colorway Glazed Carrot, although one friend labeled it Persimmon).
